God’s Plan is Not Our Own
El Roi- The God Who Sees
Carol reminded us that our God is the God who sees all. He has never left us or forsaken us.
An Egyptian slave, Hagar encountered God in the desert and addressed him as El Roi, “the God who sees me.” Interestingly enough, this is the only record of El Roi used in the scriptures. “She [Hagar] 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.” That is why the well was called Beer Lahai Roi [the”well of the Living One who sees me”]. (Genesis 16:13-14)
Guest Blogger:This month’s story was submitted by a friend of mine, Carol Unrine. Carol is a Christ follower, wife to Mark, and mom to Jacob and Lester. She spends her days homeschooling her boys and just being a mom. She also enjoys being involved with different ministries in her church. I am super excited to share it with you and hope it encourages your heart as much as it did mine.
I wrote another blog on Hagar if you want to hear more about her: To The Mom Who Needs REST
