God Who Sees

“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.”
