What’s Wrong With You?

The angel of God called to Hagar from heaven. He asked her, “What’s wrong with you, Hagar? Don’t be afraid, because God has heard the voice of the youth where he is.” (Gen 21:17 ISV)

Hagar was so despondent when she ran out of the water and bread that Abraham supplied, she absolutely broke down. Abraham had been her source so long she was unaware of the True Bread and Water.

God revealed Himself  as El Roi which means ” God who sees me” He asked what is the matter, what is bothering you, what’s wrong? God was saying that He was her source and she has no reason to be afraid.  God revealed Himself to her and then opened her eyes to see the water that was already provided. Hagar was refreshed after this and realized there was no need for her worry.  El Roi is in control.

Beloved, nothing should cause us to worry because we serve a God who not only see us but He hears our cries.

Jesus asked “Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” (Matt 6:27)
