God Sees

Tuesday I received a text from a friend which brought me to tears. Instead of replying to her text, I phoned immediately. For the next hour her brokenness and emotional pain came through in sobs.

El Roi sees. Jehovah-shammah is there. Jehovah-nissi fights for us.

God sees us. He is with us. He fights our battles.

Two days later another friend entered the hospital for an invasive medical procedure – surgery. Facing the unknown can be scary.

El Roi sees. Jehovah-shammah is there. Jehovah-nissi fights for us.

God sees us. He is with us. He fights our battles.

On Monday of this same week I heard from yet another friend saying she went to an interview for what could turn out to be the long-awaited dream job she hopes for.

El Roi sees. Jehovah-shammah is there. Jehovah-nissi fights for us.

God sees us. He is with us. He fights our battles.

When we find ourselves in situations filled with uncertainty, we don’t have to face them alone. Just as God was with Hagar in the desert and the Israelites in the wilderness, he is with us.

It does not matter the situation. Relational. Physical. Financial. Emotional. The same God who has power over all things is our El Roi, Jehovah-shammah, and Jehovah-nissi today just as surely as he has been in days past. And will be in the future.

God sees us. He is with us. He fights our battles. Wherever we are and whatever we go through, God will never leave or forsake us.

Is there a battle you face today? Hang onto the promise you are not alone in the fight.

El Roi sees you. Jehovah-shammah is with you. Jehovah-nissi fights for you.

Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the Lord, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.” She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?” Genesis 16:13 (NLT)

I wish you well.
