Recently my niece visited me and had many stories to share about her school and day-to-day routine. She told me that her father keeps looking at her always. He keeps observing her while she is playing, studying, etc and her and her little mind kept thinking, “Father, why do you keep looking at me?”.

I had to then explain to her that it’s for her good, and the reason he does that is because he loves her and wants to protect her always.

This conversation with my niece, made me think.


If an earthly father watches and guards over his daughter so much, how much more would my Heavenly Father keep His eyes on me.

Father, Why Do You Keep Looking at Me?

In fact, He is called El Roi – the God who sees me.

Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the LORD, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.” She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?”
(Genesis 16:13)

He surely enjoys seeing me wake up in the morning, go about doing my daily chores, pick up my Bible and spend time with Him, etc. This conversation with my niece opened up the Father’s heart to me. A true and caring father will always keep an eye on his daughter to see if she needs his help in anything.

A Father’s gaze is a daughter’s protection

This reminded me of Mordecai who took care of Esther when she lost her biological parents. The Bible says in Esther 2:11“And Mordecai walked every day before the court of the women’s house, to know how Esther did, and what should become of her”. (KJV).

Mordecai here shows us the heart of God. The father in Mordecai wanted to know how is Esther (his daughter) doing in the king’s palace. He was very much a part of Esther’s journey from a common next-door girl to being the Queen of Susa.

Does anyone care?

Even as you are reading this, maybe you are studying far away from your home. Or maybe your job has brought you to a foreign land. Perhaps you are all alone somewhere with thoughts running in your mind like: “Is anyone watching over me”? “Does anyone care?”

The answer is yes!

Your Heavenly Father watches over you every moment. Psalm 121:7-8 says, “The Lord will keep you from all harm he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore

What comfort we have in knowing that He watches over us! His eyes are always on me. With Him on my side, I can never be alone.
