Praying The Names Of God- El Roi

I'm joining with Jill of Forever N Ever N Always as we study Ann Spangler's book "Praying the Names of God". Today we focus on God as El Roi; the God who sees. READ: Genesis 16:7-13
[Hagar] called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, “Have I also here seen Him who sees me?” —Genesis 16:13
El Roi sees your past misery, your present pain, your uncertain future. He is so watchful, that He knows when the smallest sparrow perishes (Matt. 10:29-31). And, He is the God who sees and cares for you today.

If God sees the sparrow’s fall,
Paints the lilies short and tall,
Gives the skies their azure hue,
Will He not then care for you? —Anon.

Keep your eyes on the Lord; He never takes His eyes off you.

Oh Denise, I'm so glad you are joining in on this study. El Roi sees every single thing that is going on in your life. And best of all, He loves you and knows exactly what you need.

Love you,

I've also joined the study, Denise, but I'm sad to say I haven't had the time to really study along. I'm sure it's a tremendous blessing.

God bless!
