names of God

God Sees Me

clip image001 thumb God Sees MeTheologians divide God’s attributes into communicable and non-communicable categories. Among His non-communicable attributes is Omnipresence or everywhere present, Omniscience or all knowing, Omnipotence or all powerful, and eternality. The name God used to reveal His omniscience is El Roi or the God who sees.

The first time the name El Roi is used in the Bible is in Genesis 16:13, “And she called the name of the LORD that spoke unto her, the God who sees me.” The story is that of Abram who was promised a seed blessed by God, and a lack of faith that developed because of his great age, as the story continued Abram and Sarai took matters into their own hands, and as a result insulted Sarai’s Egyptian maid, by using her to provide a son for Abram.

In this context, God is revealed as One who sees and at the same time one who is no respecter of persons. God by grace promised a seed to Abram because there was no special good in Abram. God saw the troubles of an Egyptian woman who would be the mother of a family of people that would be a thorn in the side of God’s people Israel down to our very day.

“But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust” Matthew 5:44-45. God is no respecter of people, and so this side of heaven he treats them alike.

The Christian should always be conscious that salvation is a gift of God’s grace. God sees the sins that remain in His people even if they do not, and it does not change His love for them. No one should know the saying better than the Christian, ‘but for the grace of God there go I.’

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
