The God Who Sees You
Sometimes it may feel like the details of our lives are hidden from God; when the road of life turns in ways we cannot understand. It can be hard to trust God and really believe that he is aware of every detail of our lives.
There was a moment in time when I couldn’t understand why the transitions of life were happening how they were. I wondered if God had left me. Did he forget about me? Why did he allow this? Is he mad at me? I felt like I was standing in the middle of an iceberg…completely stranded. Nothing made sense to me. Being rushed under the weight of my circumstances, I melted to the floor and cried out to God to hear me.
After the tears tapered off, my mind wandered towards a memory that was almost forgotten. At the naive age of 21, my dream was about to come true. After years of waiting I was finally going to be face to face with my birth mother. For so many years I visualized this moment. Would it be love at first sight? Would the pieces of emptiness in my life finally be put together? Ever since I was old enough to be disciplined, I dreamed of my birth mother. I imagined that one day she would come for me and sweep me away to our perfect little life.
What do you do, when faced with a moment as this? My body went into overdrive when I saw her car pull up to our modest house. I stood there with a baby of my own. If ever I was to test my heart, this was it. My pulse beat so rapidly, my palms were sweating and I started to feel as like I would vomit or faint. Finally! I was about to be reunited with my mother.
She and I were face to face. We stared into each others eyes, waiting for the fireworks to begin. Finally, she spoke. I cannot explain quite how, but my heart slid to the floor…broken. She was nothing like I expected. In fact, she was a complete stranger. Agony was building, as I witnessed years of anticipation and wonder turn into an instant disappointment. As I talked more with her and learned of her life, I saw a veil removed from my eyes. I saw the truth.
Oh no, Oh Lord…what have I done? My adoptive parents loved me so much and I was never nice to them. They gave me a great life. My mother put me in any extracurricular activity I wanted, my parents gave me the world; complete with family vacations and unconditional love. But I never saw it. No, I only saw what I didn’t have. I only saw my own understanding. The truth was, all I wanted at that moment was my mother; my real mother. The mother who cuddled me as a baby, who would wipe away my tears and assist in mending every broken heart; my adoptive mother was my real mother and I loved her!
That day the lord opened my eyes to how much he really loves me. He saved me and blessed me with a Christian family that would lead me right to him.
It was revealed to me the kind of harsh life I would have had, if I had not been adopted. Not only that in the time of my mother’s pregnancy, abortion was legal. How much easier it would have been for them to kill me. But just as God had other plans for baby Moses, he had other plans for me. Before I even knew his love, God came down and rescued me in Love. I was adopted April 16th. It is no coincidence that the number 16 represents Love. (There are 16 Characteristics of Love in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8).
Feelings of Thankfulness soon moved in as the feelings of wanting left. I made it a point to apologize to my adoptive parents for the years that I hurt them. Then I asked God to forgive me. How could I be so blessed and not even see? God knew I was pretty thick headed back then. So he waited patiently for me and when I was ready, he was there.
God showed me the book of Jeremiah and his word spoke to my heart. “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5).

There is not one detail of your life that goes unnoticed to The Lord. He is the God who sees you. Just Hagar spoke of him as she wept in the desert. He revealed himself to her.
“She 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.” (Genesis 13:16)
Sometimes our human minds cannot understand why things happen the way they do. It can even be hard to place trust in God, when our reasoning searches for answers to why he allows certain things to happen. Who can fathom the mind of the Lord? Who is like the Lord? Job sought God for answers for his suffering. As his friends spoke as experts of the ways of God, The Almighty answered out of the whirlwind. I can imagine how awesome and powerful his voice thundered his incomparable Sovereign Power.
There are seasons when God will hide himself and we must walk by faith. It takes extreme faith to believe that God is all present and all knowing. Every person was divinely created to experience his Love.
Before you were born he knew you and made plans for Deliverance, a hope and a beautiful future. Have peace and know that he is a God who sees you. If he knows every single hair on your head, then truly he knows even the tiniest details and unspoken cries of your heart. The more we trust in our Savior, they more he will reveal the beauty on himself. His Love manifests as we come with open hearts as little children. Every detail of your personality matters. Every heart’s desire he cares about. His love cannot be contained in the human mind. Just Believe and know that his eyes of Love are forever towards you.
“Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name. By the greatness of his power; Not one is missing” (Isaiah 40:26)
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom ” Isaiah 40:28 .
A TURNAROUND FOR YOU..
A word by Dana Jarvis
I decree you are making the spiritual journey from the bondage of Egypt into your promised land of destiny. I know you have grown weary. Do not let the murmurings and complaining attitudes rule you. It causes the faith to waiver! Your focus is upon the cup of bitter waters that you are currently drinking from.
Rest assured that your God is making these bitter waters sweet!
You shall taste and see that the Lord is good! You are going to see such extravagance in your daily life. He is delivering much into your hands so reach up and take hold. Just as he was with you before, he is with you now. You are going to drink deep of the Living Waters. The bitter waters of life have tried to steal all joy.
However I hear the Lord say, “It is done, I am the Lord who heals you. I am the Lord who will restore you. I am the Lord who will provide your every need. I am the One that is making the bitter waters sweet!”
I feel so strongly that God is removing your cup of bitter waters you have had to drink for so long. He is causing a turnaround for you in a situation that you desperately need him to move. I am speaking to several and know this word is for you. Even as the Lord led Moses and the children of Israel from their bondage at the Red Sea, it still took one step of faith. One step of faith is all it takes to cause a release from all of this. Take a moment and sow into good ground by giving into Spirit Fuel. For just a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100 or more given into Spirit Fuel is an active step and good ground on which to sow. It is a powerful ministry reaching the world for Christ.

The bitter cup will be removed and the sweetness of the Lord shall begin to flow!
