#FEARLESS365 is a yearlong study of God’s commandment to us to live without fear. For 365 days, we will focus on one scripture and volunteers from all over the world will share their personal thoughts and what God has shared with them on the specific verse. For more info… go here.

God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there.

Genesis 21:17

To me, this is a very simple verse about the omnipresence of God.  He heard Ishmael’s cry in the desert and saw Hagar’s plight. He is simply reminding Hagar that He is
their provider and not to despair.  We often forget that we are not alone. We have a loving Father God who cares for us. We often forget to turn our troubles over to
Him. Just like a stubborn toddler, we often want to do it ourselves. There is no such thing as a hopeless situation when we turn it over to God. He is our HOPE.
