My beloved children of God, what a great privilege it is that our Lord’s eyes are upon us! When the Lord watches over us there is an expiry date for all our problems. The Bible says:
“the eyes of the Lord your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year”( Deuteronomy 11:12)
In the Old Testament, we read about a woman Hagar who worked in Abraham’s house and suffered a lot of injustice. She was a slave girl. She came as an orphan to work in Abraham’s house. The climax of the cruelty was when she was in distress in the wilderness with her son, totally uncertain of her next step. There was no one to enquire about her wellbeing. When Hagar and her son were at the brink of death without any food or water, the eyes of the Lord fell on them. Our Lord lovingly enquired, “Hagar What happened to you? Where are you going?” (Genesis 16:7,8;21:9-18).The same loving God is asking you, “Daughter, what is your problem? why are you crying? what happened to you?”. That day God looked at Hagar, enquired of her wellbeing, solved her problems, opened a well of water and saved her son from the grip of death, and her son survived. In the same way God will open the fountain of life that you and your children require to prosper.
Are you saying that – all the doors are closed with no way to live, no way to survive, no way to progress? The God who wants to bless you, will open today a fountain for your income, a fountain for your life. “Who will rescue me from this deadly debt?” – Is this your cry child of God, because you are unable to bear the torture of the creditors, today God will wipe away your tears and help you find favour in the eyes of men. He will give you a permanent job, or a successful business, or a fruitful ministry and bless it so that you will be able to repay all your loans. The Lord who opened the pathway for Hagar’s survival when she was cluelessly wandering in the desert, and beautified her son’s life by making him a leader will do the same for your children. “You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow”.(Deuteronomy 28:12) thus says El Roi, ‘the God who sees you’.
Once a mother brought her young son to me for prayer. With tears in her eyes she shared her story, “Sir, my son is 36 years old, but he is yet to secure a permanent job. Hence his marriage is getting postponed. I am in the 4th stage of cancer, and according to the doctor’s diagnosis I have been informed that I may not survive more than a month. I have one final desire, before I die, I want to see my son’s marriage”. I told her, “Daughter, you have come in search of God’s presence. It is not just the three of us present here in this room, but also El Roi, ‘the God who sees you’ is present as the fourth person amidst us. It is a simple thing for the Lord to give a job to your son, or to conduct your son’s marriage and to keep you alive. “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord”(Psalms 118:17). He will heal you and give you the grace to raise and nurture your grandchild”, saying this I prayed for her.
What a wonder! Just within 2 weeks, he secured a permanent job in an MNC with good renumeration. And in 30 days, his marriage was held in a very blessed manner. Currently, for the past few years the mother is happily raising the child born to her son. There came an end to her disease. Her son was blessed with a bright future. Child of God who is reading this in faith, may all these blessings come to fruition in your life.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank you for this blessed day. Lord you are the God who sees us. As you blessed Hagar, bless my children. Help them to come out of their difficulties and prosper them. Always watch over your children and bless them. In Jesus name we pray.
