She 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.” Genesis 16:13
There is no other god that chases after us then God Almighty. He is the one who sees us when we feel happy, lonely, or angry. He is the God that is watching over all.
When Hagar had run away into the desert feeling disappointed upset and hurt it was God who surrounded her with His grace and mercy. Our God will never leave us to fend for ourselves in times of darkness.
It was Hagar who said, “You are the God who sees me” for she said, I have now seen the One who sees me.
The same God who saw Hagar sees you and me. This beautiful story reminds us that God is always close, that He sees us when we feel that no one else does, and that He cares.
