Acts 7:34
“I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their groaning, and I have come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you to Egypt.’”

God sees! This language is not general, but that the God of the universe sees their individual affliction and steps in to save His people. God sees and hears! God actually hears their groaning.

God is love
And looks at His people
Listening to them
To lavish love on us

God is looking at you, and listening to us, so that He can lavish His unmerited mercy upon us over and over again. This is pure grace! The God over all things, reaching into our situation to achieve what we could never accomplish on our own. God is constantly looking at you and listening to us. Father God, thank You for caring about my life, listening to my groans, and seeing my pain. Help me to persevere through hardship, and have patience in trials, to rejoice in suffering as I become more like You today, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

ACTION: Chose character over comfort
