Names of God: ★ El Roy : The God Who Sees ( El Ro’ / El Roi )

El Roy (The God Who Sees)

  • Original Word:  ro’iy  רֳאִי
  • Strong’s #H7210
  • Variations: El Ro’ ,  ‘Ēl – Rō’ı̄, 

She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.” – Genesis 16:13 (NIV) – 

Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, “You are God Who Sees”; for she said, “Have I not even here [in the wilderness] remained alive after seeing Him [who sees me with understanding and compassion]?” – Genesis 16:13 (AMP) – 

The all-present God. He sees. He knows. He Loves. He Cares. El Roi sees past present and future.

El Roi means first of all that he sees, than it implies a sense of His presence, and it certainly includes an assurance of His perfect care and provision.

No matter where I am, I am never out of God’s sight.

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness, To deliver their soul from death And to keep them alive in famine. – Psalm 33:18-19 – 

Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me. If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,” Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. Psalms 139:7-12 (NASB) – 

This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed.  – 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10 (NASB)  – 

In our affliction or hurt we can find healing, as Kay Arthur said, “Where does healing begin? With the recognition of El Roi, the God who sees. … … The first time we meet God in the Word as El Roi we find Him telling Hagar to go back and deal with the situation.

… … After you realize that He sees, you need to know that in His sovereignty He permitted it. 

… … These truths (which we find in God’s name and character) will be your comfort, your healing, your sanity, your hope, your protection against the fiery darts of the accusing liar.

1 João 5:18 (AMP) –

We know [absolutely] that anyone born of God does not [deliberately and knowingly] practice committing sin, but the One Who was begotten of God carefully watches over and protects him [Christ’s divine presence within him preserves him against the evil], and the wicked one does not lay hold (get a grip) on him or touch [him].
