The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

Knowing God sees me and my situation is comforting, especially when life is not going well. You may be experiencing a difficult time in your life, and the Lord wants you to know He loves you and cares for you. The Lord also saw you before you were born. Psalm 139:16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. [1]

When our children were small, and I took them places, I would not let them out of sight. I did this because I loved them and was responsible for them. The Lord does not allow us out of His sight because He also loves us. Jesus says in John 10:14“I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, 15 just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep.”[2] Just as a shepherd is watchful of his sheep, the Lord watches over us, and He loves us so much He gave up His life to rescue us. As you contemplate this amazing love, you realize the Lord sees me so He can minister to me, not make my life difficult.  

Joseph Sent to See His Brothers

Unlike the Lord, we are not all seeing and knowing. When Jacob wanted to know how his sons were doing as they cared for the sheep, he sent his son Joseph. Genesis 37:13 When they had been gone for some time, Jacob said to Joseph, “Your brothers are pasturing the sheep at Shechem. Get ready, and I will send you to them.” “I’m ready to go,” Joseph replied. 14 “Go and see how your brothers and the flocks are getting along,” Jacob said. “Then come back and bring me a report.” So Jacob sent him on his way, and Joseph traveled to Shechem from their home in the valley of Hebron. [3]

The God Who Sees Me

The phrase “The God who sees me” was first used by Hagar when she was experiencing a difficult time in her life. Ref. Genesis 16:13. The God who sees me knows the number of hairs on my head and is aware of every tear that drops from my eyes. When we pray to the Lord who sees us, we pray to God, who knows everything about us.

Our parents must take time to sleep, but our God does not need rest. He is always at work around us, and we can trust Him no matter the situation. Our Lord, who sees us, wants a personal relationship that transforms us. One day when we get to heaven, we will live in all eternity with the one “who sees us.”
