Are You Struggling to See God at Work in Your Life?

by | Mar 30, 2021 | Purpose & Identity

God wants us to know that He sees us, and when we understand that, we will be able to see Him.

How does He reveal this to us?

He has done this for me so many times through a prophetic word like He did with Hagar. Let’s see how He revealed a new dimension of Himself to her and us.

God promised a child to Abram and Sarai. However, when the promise wasn’t fulfilled, Sarai took matters into her own hands and offered Hagar, her maidservant, to her husband. Fast-forward: Hagar gets pregnant and has something Sarai does not. (See Genesis 16:1-4.)

At Sarai’s suggestion, Abram kicks Hagar to the curb.

Have you ever felt unprotected and vulnerable?

Genesis 16:6 says: “But Abram said to Sarai, ‘Indeed, your maid is in your power; do to her as you please.’ Then Sarai dealt harshly with her, and she fled from her presence.”

Now, Hagar is on the run, but God pursues her. And He will do the same for you.

How many times have we said, “God didn’t call me to be mistreated? I’m not going to go through that.” God sometimes requires for us to submit to Him amid unfavorable situations.

The angel of the Lord also said to her, “I will multiply your descendants exceedingly so that they will be too many to count.” Then the angel of the Lord said to her, “You are pregnant and will bear a son.You shall call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has heard your affliction. He will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand will be against him. And he will dwell in the presence of all his brothers” (Gen. 16:10-12).

God gave her a prophetic promise, and with it she was able to endure the hardship and have hope for her future. During that prophetic promise given to Hagar, God revealed Himself to her, and she declared Him to be “the God who sees me.” But she also was able to see the God who saw her. God has a prophetic promise for you and your children for their future and for now.
