Do you feel overlooked, forgotten, invisible, or underappreciated? Does it seem like no one understands what you are going through?
There is at least one person who takes note of you, and what you are going through. We remember the song about Santa Clause, “He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake…” Maybe it sounds a little creepy. It strikes enough fear in children to get them to behave for a month or so. But in Exodus we discover God sees us for a very different reason: “The Lord said, I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering,” (Exodus 3:7). What a different understanding of seeing – not to judge, but to care and assist.
Maybe no one on earth has noticed, but God has taken note of your life and he has done so with compassion. After God sees the misery of His people in Exodus, Chapter 3, He takes action. Because of his concern for his dearly loved people He performs one of the greatest acts of deliverance by having them march out of slavery right through the middle of a sea, yet on dry ground.
Make no mistake, God sees you. And He is not just an onlooker. He will participate lovingly in the story of your life, because he cares for you.
Ladies, be inspired by the God who sees you at the Edgewater “Pearls of Wisdom” Women’s Luncheon, coming to Eastvale on September 27th. It will feature guest speaker, Tammy Maltby, author of “The God Who Sees You.” See the ad on this page for more information.
