I See You

A few years ago I was asked to speak at a Women’s Conference in South Asia. At that particular conference there was around a thousand women in attendance.

There were several speakers at that conference, but I was the first one scheduled to speak. I remember as I got up to take the stage, I looked out across the large hall to a vast sea of faces spread across that room. It took my breath away. So many women who had come from far and wide, all leaning in, hungry to receive from God.

After I had spoken and ministered to these amazing women, the second speaker got up to speak, and then after he had finished we were to have morning tea. As he was sharing his closing remarks, I began to think of the delicious morning tea that was just around the corner. The doorway, and the only way out to the grassy square where the food had been prepared was just by me, right near the front row of seats. I thought to myself; ‘I can be out there in a flash.’

As I was anticipating the savoury dishes of this beautiful nation, God interrupted my thoughts and said; ‘Deb, forget morning tea. I want you to stay right where you are. Stay in your seat. I want you to intentionally look into the faces of as many women as possible as they walk past you and out the door. Don’t just glance at them, but really look at them. I want you to see them as I see them. Not as a vast sea of faces as you first saw them, not even as a group of women who have come together, but as individuals. Look intentionally at each one, because I want you to get a glimpse into my heart for each of these women. I know each one by name. I know each one intimately. I love each one completely. I listen to each and every one of them as they cry out to me. I do not miss one. Each one is significant, and has significance in this world.

As each woman passed by me, although many in groups, I did my best to look into the face of each one. As I did, I began to be awakened to not the crowd that I once saw, but the individuals, all different, all significant to God. I was beginning to get a glimpse of the Father’s heart for them personally. The more that walked past me, the more overwhelmed I became. By the time the last of the women had passed by me, I was completely undone. Each one significant to God! Not one excluded. It was a powerful and precious moment for me which outstripped any delicacies on offer outside.

After morning tea, it was my turn to speak again, and once more God spoke to me. ‘Now Deb, share with the women what I asked you to do. Tell them that I see them. Tell them that I miss nothing and I love them without reservation.’ When I shared with the women what God had told me to do and what He had said about them, the women began to weep and praise God.

Friends, this is how God sees you. He knows your name, He hears your heart’s cry, He knows you intimately and loves you completely. He is interested in your now, and He is interested in your future. He is for you, not against you. Rise up and walk into all He has for you because He is walking with you.

I am passionate about seeing people connected with their purpose. To rise up and not be afraid to take that first step because you can trust God in your journey. As you read the journey I took in my book called Just Say Yes, you will find that you too can have confidence to walk your own. Deb x

  1. God sure works that way 1990 I went to India with a team. At one meeting the leader got all the people to put their hand on the bad spot and then a global prayer God said to me make sure to pray with a hand on folk to they know you and I care And that felt so much better and people responded with smiles of thanks
