The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

Soar with God

"Keep going, I'll give you new strength." Isaiah 40:31
"But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." I am yours O God and I long to fly with You. Put me under the shadow of your wings.

Zechariah 6:15 And this shall come to pass if ye diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God. El Shaddai loves me like a mother protecting me with her wings. He takes me to fly with Him. This is so comforting to me because I have a great example of a mother. My mom protects me, even if it means putting a bad wrap on her name, even if it means hurting herself. What a privilege to have godly parents who model Christ.

After reading the Isaiah 40 passage, I am reminded of this story that so beautifully pictures God's perfect protection.

After a forest fire in Yellowstone National Park, forest rangers
began their trek up a mountain to assess the inferno's damage.

One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes, perched
statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat
sickened by the eerie sight, he knocked over the bird with a stick.
When he gently struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under
their dead mother's wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of
impending disaster, had carried her offspring to the base of the
tree and had gathered them under her wings, instinctively knowing
that the toxic smoke would rise.

She could have flown to safety but had refused to abandon her
babies. Then the blaze had arrived and the heat had scorched her
small body, the mother had remained steadfast... because she had
been willing to die, so those under the cover of her wings would live.

'He will cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you will find refuge.'
(Psalm 91:4)
