“Does He who formed the eye not see?” (Psalm 94:9)
This poetic statement of logic challenges our subtle belief
that God is too distant to care for us, whom He has made.
In our struggles, we, like Israel, can complain that our “way
is hidden” (Isaiah 40:27) from our God. Do we think we are
more perceptive, attentive, or compassionate than He?
Just as with Hagar, as we wander in our own deserts, may
we feel His eyes on us like the sun — burning, insistent, and
closer to us than our own damp skin. As He opens our eyes
to see the provision He is making for us in the midst of our
conflict, uncertainty, loss or grief, may we exclaim, “I have
now seen the One who sees me” (Genesis 16:13).
“To have God speak to the heart is a majestic
experience, an experience that people may miss
if they monopolize the conversation and never
pause to hear God’s responses.”
