I love the account of Hagar in Genesis. A woman alone, destitute and desperate in the wilderness. She is feeling helpless and hopeless and then God shows up. Right where she is at, in her misery and her loneliness, the God who sees, El Roi, reveals Himself to her.
So she called the Lord who spoke to her: The God Who Sees, for she said, “In this place, have I actually seen the One who sees me? ” (Genesis 16:13 HCSB)
When we find ourselves in this same situation, our God will show up and show Himself to us in this same way. The God who sees us. He knows everything about us. He hears our cries. He sees our deepest need. And He will reveal Himself to us and minister to the aching and empty places in our spirits.
Fall on your face before Him and cry out. He will show up and satisfy what only He can.
