El Roi – The God Who Sees Me

“O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O LORD, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it. Where can I run from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me. If I say ‘surely the darkness shall fall on me,’ Even the night shall be light about me; Indeed the darkness shall not hide from You, but the night shines as the day: The darkness and the light are both alike to You”

The Creator God sees it all. He is EL Roi (El-RAW-HEE, the Hebrew name for God translates to ” The God who sees me “.

This is great news for the one who has given themselves over to Christ completely. God’s very name means He is always watching over us. However, for the one who is still hiding from God, this can be dreadful and uncomfortable. The truth is, we cannot hide anything from God. He sees the deepest darkest things of our heart. Still, He desires to free us and He loves us in spite of it all.

Even as a child of God, we can drift away and forget that Jesus is still Master over our lives. Being a Christian for over 20 years now, I can look back and see the times where I was doing my own thing; not reading or praying as fervently, and sadly sometimes just going through the motions–cruise control if you will. Thankfully, because He is El Roi, He pushes the off button, and suddenly He has my attention! I’m sure you could fill in the blanks with this one….

So how are your plans coming along? Do you feel God’s presence? Do you hear Him calling you out of your hiding place?

Answer the call – His plans for us are far better than any we can come up with on our own. Most Importantly, His plan won’t send us running to find a hiding place.

Let His light pierce your darkness – though it may hurt awhile, as it does when you first turn on a light in a dark room, you will adjust quickly and find that the warmth of the Light will awaken the Peace resting in your soul.

On the other hand, you may not be hiding from God, you are earnestly seeking Him yet you feel like he has abandoned you–hiding from you. This is a lie straight from the pit of Hell–reject that thought. Renew your heart with the truth today.

For a deeper look, read the following passages of Scripture: Psalm 121:3, 5-8; Psalm 33 and Isaiah 41:10

Walk in the freshness of His Holy and wonderful name!

El Roi, thank you for your faithfulness and never losing sight of me!
