HAGAR IS PURSUED BY GOD
“One day we will meet beside the river and our Lord will dry every tear. For now, we must live in the joy of that promise and recall that for every generation life is hard, but God is faithful.” Bodie Thoene
Hagar soon found herself between a rock and a hard place after complying with Sarah to bear a son for her and Abram, since Sarah was barren. Initially Hagar probably felt like she was doing what was right, but after Ishmael was born she was in quite a predicament!
Sarah had become cold, harsh and very demanding towards Hagar. Although she knew running away wasn’t the answer, Hagar felt hopeless and isolated. God knew right where she was and in her lowest moment He taught her a very valuable lesson. “God sees us. We are never alone.” She gave God a personal name: “The God Who Sees Me.”
It’s comforting to know that God sees you right where you are even at your lowest. You may feel no one else notices the burdens you bear or the heartaches you face, but know that God sees you!
Rather than running away from what may be causing grief and pain in your life, run into the Loving arms of our Lord! Jesus is our blessed hope! Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and our strength and will be present in our trouble.” John 11:25 “Jesus is the resurrection and the life. We receive eternal life through Him.” Isaiah 54:10 “God’s unfailing love for us will not be shaken.”
“Even when no one on earth understands the impossible situation you’re facing, God sees you. That’s a powerful encouragement to not worry but instead trust in the God who sees.”
