Lord, Do you see me?

“My child,

I see you. I see you right now, in this very moment. My eyes were the ones that first beheld your beauty; long before anyone else was captured by it. I created your inmost being; I knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13). Even before I formed you in that secret place, I knew you. I set you apart & I appointed you as a prophet to the nations (Jeremiah 1:5).

There is not a part of you that I don’t understand. There is not a piece of you that I do not love. There is not a wound you have that I cannot heal. You are my masterpiece. I take delight in you with gladness. I will calm your fears with my love. I rejoice over you with joyful songs (Zephaniah 3:17).

I am so pleased with you when you do what is right (1 Peter 2:19). I don’t ask for perfection, I ask for obedience. Our relationship is an ongoing, always-deepening one. It’s a journey. Keep chasing Me.

I know there are times when your heart aches. I promise to give you my peace that goes beyond your understanding (Philippians 4:7). When you are brokenhearted, I am closer to you than your next breath. I will save you when you feel your spirit is crushed (Psalm 34:18). There is not a depth vast enough, or a darkness strong enough to keep me from you. You are always in the palm of my hand & nothing can change that. No one can take you from me (John 10:29).

Do not rely on your own inadequate strength. You were created to rely on me. It is I alone who arm you with strength and keep your way secure (2 Samuel 22:33). Look to me; seek my face always (1 Chronicles 16:11). I have overcome the enemy. The victory is already yours.

I am El Roi, God who sees. I see you, my precious one. And oh, how I love you.”
