“Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love.” 

(Psalm 33:18, ESV)


God’s Watchful Eye

We can find comfort and assurance in the fact that God is watching over those who revere Him and place their trust in His unwavering love. As we meditate on this truth and praise Him, He reveals His tender care and His vigilant eye over us. We can rest assured that God’s eyes are always upon us and that His love sustains us each day.

El Roi 

El Roi means “The God who sees me.” The Hebrew word “Ro’iy” can be translated as “shepherd” or “seeing,” emphasizing God’s watchful gaze upon us.

The story of Hagar in Genesis 16 reveals the origin of this name. Hagar, an Egyptian slave, encountered God in the desert. Feeling unseen and mistreated, she declared, “You are the God who sees me.”

When we feel vulnerable, invisible, or forgotten by everyone else, we can find hope and strength in the name of God. El Roi witnesses our struggles and stands alongside us, even when others may overlook us.

May we find comfort in knowing that El Roi sees us, cares for us, and walks with us in our most challenging moments.

Prayer: “Heavenly Father, thank You for Your watchful presence. May our hearts be attuned to Your love, and may we walk in reverence before You. Grant us the wisdom to hope in Your promises, knowing that Your eyes never waver from us. Guide our steps, O Lord, as we journey through life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
