“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”. Gen 16:13
Story: Hagar despised her mistress Sarai when she found that she was pregnant, Sarai mistreated Hagar and she ran away to desert. There the angel of God met her and told her to go back as the Lord has seen her misery. Hagar went back thankfully. Why? If we look carefully her situation did not change.
Lesson: The answer to why she was thankfully going back to her misery, we will understand if we learn what Hagar said, she told; now I see the Lord who sees me. Till then she would have seen only her mistress or her misery, but now she saw the Almighty who is looking at her. The moment we are able to see the Lord instead of our situation we will be thankful.
Prayer: Father Lord, help me to see you always, I do not want to get lost by looking at my tough situation. Open my eyes that I see the one who sees me. Amen.
