Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the Lord, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.” She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?” So that well was named Beer-lahai-roi (which means “well of the Living One who sees me”). It can still be found between Kadesh and Bered.Genesis 16:13-14 (NLT)
To God you’re not insignificant, or an accident. You’re not even a little piece in a big puzzle. You’re God’s idea, His masterpiece. Ephesians 2:10. As such you’re held tenderly, dearly in Father God’s heart. You’re always on his mind. God sees you, not casually but carefully and carelingly.
From a human point of view Hagar was an insignificant slave girl, an inconvenience and a problem to her mistress who had treated her harshly that she ran away. Alone and frightened out there in the backside of a ruthless desert, not knowing what’s next, she comes face to face with the One who sees her. She saw the One who sees her for what she truly is. She carried a destiny, a future, a nation, countless descendants in her womb.
That’s what God saw and spoke to her. Genesis 16:10 and Genesis 21:13,18.
The child she was carrying in her womb, God named Ishmael which means God hears. God sees what’s on the inside of you. He hears or pays attention to who you’re on the inside. Because God Himself the Greater one lives inside you ,1John 4:4, greatness indwells you.
God sees you not as people or you yourself see you but for who you really are. You carry within you seed of greatness, value and excellence.
