A daily devotional exploring the names of God in scripture. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com.

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. Today the name of God we consider is El-Roi, the strong one who sees.
  3. Scripture
    1. Genesis 16:13
    2. She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”
  4. Devotional
    1. El-Roi, the strong one who sees
    2. I expect we have all hit that point in our life at one time or another when we think no one care about us. No one sees our plight. No one would notice if we just disappeared from the face of the earth.
    3. Drama of the Old Testament
      1. Unlike the stories of other heroes
      2. Points out the flaws and failures of those we should emulate
      3. Abraham, father of the Israelite nation
      4. Promised a son who and progeny that would be the spark of a nation that was innumerable
      5. At 100 he had no children
    4. Sarah gives her maidservant to Abraham in an effort to help God along
      1. Common practice for barren women
      2. Servant acted as surrogate and their child became the heir of the estate
      3. Adopted into the family
      4. Hagar became arrogant and took liberties with Sarah she should not have taken
      5. Sarah drove Hagar and Ishmael away
    5. Hagar, though a servant, lived in luxury and wasn’t prepared to survive in the desert
      1. Alone
      2. Lost
      3. Without hope
      4. In despair, resigned to die in the wilderness
    6. God, in His strength and power, sees her
      1. God does not abandon her as Abraham did
      2. God sees her despair and hopelessness
      3. God recognizes her need
      4. God intervenes and provides water and food for Hagar and Ismael
    7. Important aspect of the story
      1. God doesn’t take Hagar out of her difficult circumstances
      2. He tells her to go back into the situation from which she fled
      3. God puts her back under Sarah’s thumb
      4. Bt with a promise
      5. Ismael will also become a great nation, and he did
  5. If you want to learn more about my church, you can find us at SAF.church. If you like the devotional, share it with someone. If you don't, tell me. I hope you’ll join me again tomorrow for "A Little Walk with God."
