Where are you God? I have been diligently praying for such a long time, but there’s no reply. I wonder if you are aware of my existence.
Truth says: I haven’t forgotten you. I know where you are and what you are doing. For I am El-Roi, the God who sees.
Meditate: Acts 10: 1-8
Be encouraged as you read the account of Cornelius. He was a Gentile and not a Jew, so the disciples didn’t go out to preach the message to him. For they still hadn’t figured out my plan and thoughts.
But I knew him from the start. He was a devout man. He feared/worshipped Me and gave alms to the poor generously. Today I want you to know that I am the God who sees you. Nothing that you do is gone with the wind. It’s noted, written down, recorded and cherished in my book of love. Yes, that’s the book I maintain, not the one that records your list of sins. For I am love and love does not keep a record of sins.
Hagar blessed me with a beautiful name in the desert when I met her need. I want you to have the same revelation about me.
Then she called the name of the LORD who spoke to her, “You are a God who sees”; for she said, “Have I even remained alive here after seeing Him?”
Stunned, shocked and surprised, she wondered how she managed to be alive after seeing me, my goodness, spring up in the desert to revive her dying son and her life. Cornelius was also afraid when my angel showed up.
Here’s the good news: I am the God who sees you. Not as man sees, for he sees the face but I see the heart.
I saw Hagar’s fearful and trembling heart, I saw Cornelius’ intense and passionate devotion. Throughout the ages, I have seen every human being’s trials and temptations.
There’s not a moment when I didn’t know what was going on. I was not a passive spectator. All along, I’ve tried to help every single child to SEE ME. Some, at some point, SEE ME. Like Hagar, they notice that I AM there, in their midst.
I saw Cornelius’ heart and heard his pleas. Therefore I sent an angel to let him know that I am a God who hears prayers. That’s the same message I’ve got for you. I have heard the prayers of your heart. The words, whispers and tears; all of your desires and fears. They are not hidden from My Eye.
For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. 2 Chronicles 16:9
Therefore do not be discouraged as you walk through life wondering if I care about your life. I do. My eyes are upon you, I am here to strengthen you.
