Did you know that God sees you? Can you recall the last time you wanted to be seen or understood? Maybe you were in need and hoped to find support, even if it came in the form of encouraging words. I am experiencing that right now. I have desires in my heart. I am unsure of how God will respond to them. I am working hard in my life and praying that my efforts will not go to waste. I also wonder what God’s thoughts are toward how I feel when I am in pain. The truth is, God is aware of what is on our hearts and responds faithfully with sensitivity.
Psalm 56:8 – “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.”
Psalm 34:18 – “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Touched By God
The vast sovereign entity of God cannot be captured in a few words. That is why there are many names and descriptions to describe His character. One name I know Him well by is El Roi. In Hebrew, El Roi means “the God that sees me.” I have needed comfort during this challenging season. Without hesitation, God provided me with exactly what I needed for the journey I am on now. God uplifted me through His word, The Holy Spirit, and the encouragement of others. I am extremely grateful for the support.
The help God provided reminded me that I am not alone but rather known by Him. When you experience something such as this you are seeing God’s righteous hand at work in your life. It is incredible to experience God’s love first-hand. I can recall countless events of God’s handprint of mercy and grace on my life. God knows our lives from the beginning to the end. He wrote our story with the intent of revealing His goodness.
Isaiah 64:8 – “Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”
Psalm 139:16-18 – “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand—when I awake, I am still with you.”
God’s mission is to reveal Himself to us and work in and through our lives. For God to work mightily in our life, we must believe and live for Him. One thing I learned and pray you never forget is that you are loved and cared for by God.
