The God Who Sees
Hagar was a single mother, abandoned by her family, questioning, 'Does anyone care?' Another woman named Ruth, from the land of Moab, was met with grief and heartache and hoping for a future. Does anybody love me? Is anybody there? And God says, 'I Am The God Who sees. I will be the Glory in your midst. I will lift you up again.' Genesis 16:13a - “And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou God seest me:..." Job 34:21 - “For his eyes are upon the ways of man, and he seeth all his goings.” Proverbs 15:3 - “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.”
God put a ring around Ruth's finger, and through her was the lineage of David, by whom our Saviour was born. Emmanuel, the Son of God, Who would come to free the world from sin! Jesus set Mary Magdalene, who was plagued by demons and evil spirits, free. Oh, how she loved Him! But then she watched as they nailed Him to the cross. Her Hope died, but in her despair, God said, 'I will be the Glory in your midst. I will lift you up again, for I Am the God Who sees.' Read the story of Hagar here Read the story of Ruth here
