She [Hagar] gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”
God sees right where you are. He is not blind to your situation. Ishmael means God hears. (Genesis 16:11) Even though Hagai was not the chosen one to carry the promised son, God still had compassion on her. Genesis 16:10 Then the Angel of the Lord said to her, “I will multiply your descendants exceedingly, so that they shall not be counted for multitude. Don’t look at what isn’t, look to who Is. He is present in every season, in every situation. He sees and He knows. You maybe in a broken place or think you’ve failed and count yourself out but please know that God sees and knows all things. He is your deliverer so look to the God who sees – El Roi.
