“What is the matter Hagar? Do not be afraid! God has heard the boy crying as he lies there.”

Genesis 21:17

Once again Hagar had run away from Sarah! The first time she was pregnant and the angel of the Lord found her and sent her back to her mistress. Consequently, Hagar named the Lord, ‘El Roi’ – ‘the God of seeing’ (Gen.16:13). On this occasion, she had her young son with her; and was again rescued by the angel of the Lord. The ‘all-seeing’ God was also ‘all-hearing’! Nothing has changed. The slightest difficulty we get into, he sees; and our faintest cry for help, he hears.
We really do have a wonderful God.
