Can You See Me Now?

I heard this recently in a message from T.D. Jakes.

There is this encounter between Jesus and a woman with an infirmity that kept her bent over for 18 years. This is what Luke writes:

“As He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath, a woman was there who had been disabled by a spirit for over 18 years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, He called out to her, “Woman, you are free of your disability.” Then He laid His hands on her, and instantly she was restored and began to glorify God.” (Luke 13:10-13 HCSB)

The Bible specifically mentions that Jesus saw this woman. I believe everything that is recorded in the Bible is there for a reason and nothing is written by accident. So with that in mind, the fact that Jesus saw her implies that other people didn’t. While she was invisible to everyone else, Jesus didn’t overlook her.

I want to speak to the people who feel like you are overlooked. That you are walking around as if you are invisible. That no matter what you do, people don’t notice you. Even though everyone else may ignore you, Jesus sees you. He sees your situation. He sees your circumstance. He sees your problem. He sees your pain. He sees what you’re going through. He will never overlook you. He will never ignore you. He will never not see you.

Take heart in that whether you are on top of the mountain or at the bottom of the valley, Jesus sees you.
