Genesis 16tells the story of Hagar and Ishmael. As Abraham’s concubine, Hagar was a mother in crisis. The Lord understood her need and met her at the point of her need. Do you need to be seen? Do you know the One that sees you? Hagar called God “El roi - God never sleeps, He is aware, He is the great Omnipresent God”. In episode 5, Suzanne Burns mentions that an integral part of ministry is SEEING those that we are sent to reach. Do you SEE the people that you were created to help? Do you UNDERSTAND them? Most importantly, do you LOVE them? Pray this prayer with me: Lord, I know that you created me for more than just myself. Help me to SEE those that you have placed in my care. Help me to serve with love. Help me to know and understand that you SEE, KNOW and UNDERSTAND me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
