And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, “What ails you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he [is.] Genesis 21:17(NKJV)
A desert is a forgotten and forsaken place, where there’s no life, it’s a barren and hostile environment. But even there prayer can be offered to God who’s everywhere and can do for anyone anything anywhere. Hagar and her son Ishmael found themselves in this place which in the natural was nowhere. Here life, help, comfort, hope, was nowhere. But then the God of everywhere heard the cry of young Ishmael. Suddenly nowhere became now here. To Hagar God was now here. Therefore help, safety, hope, deliverance was now here! Right here where they were. Do you feel or see yourself in a desert, a place called nowhere? Do you think like you are nowhere in your health, family, ministry, finances, business, career? Change your focus look to the God who’s everywhere and now here right with you where you are. In our theme scripture, the Angel of the Lord told Hagar that God heard the voice of her child where he is. He hears us where we are anywhere we are and not just in some specific places, conditions, seasons, postures or state. Some people think God hears them only if they’ve fasted, sowed a seed, prayed for long hours, promised him to be nice, done something good for him. No, he hears us no matter what.
Talk to him for he hears you where you are. Most importantly hear him speak to you right there. Because he’s now here with you. So, help, strength, hope, progress is all right now here with you.
