So she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, “You are a God of seeing,” for she said, “Truly here I have seen him who looks after me.” Genesis 16:13 (ESV)
I find comfort in the fact that not only does God see me, but he also looks after me. I relish that aspect of God because I haven’t always done such a great job of that on my own.
I remember when I went on my first mission trip. My wife suggested to the leader of the group that he paints a big and colorful target on his back so I have something to focus on. She urged him to “look after me” until I came back home to her.
With all the uncertainty around us these days, we definitely need a big and colorful target to focus on. Doesn’t it make sense to focus on Jesus, who is already focused on you? Not only will he keep me from getting lost, he knows what path I need to be on!
Prayer: Lord, let us focus on you until you get us where we need to be! Amen!
