Beloved. I AM El Roi, the God who sees you. I AM the God at hand, says the LORD, and a God who is not far off.
Though you hide yourself in secret places, or the enemy takes you captive into dark places, still I see you and I will rescue you. I came to seek and to save that which is lost.
Even My Own feel lost at times. In the midst of these trials and afflictions, I come to you. Look into My Face of Grace, My Child. You have nothing to fear. My mercy and favor pour out upon you.
You shall live and not die. I AM Yahweh, the God who sees all things. I have searched you and I know you, Dear One. You are loved by Your Father. You have been born again by My Spirit.
I have enclosed you behind and before and My Hand is upon you. There is nowhere you can go that I AM not with you. Even darkness is not dark to Me. The night is as bright as the day. In the midst of your trouble, I run to you, Beloved.
Fear not, Dear One. The eyes of your God are always upon My Righteous Ones, and My ears are open to your cries. For My eyes run to and fro throughout the earth, that I may show Myself mighty on behalf of you who are Mine.
