Are you Beerlahairoi?


The name that Hagar, the runaway slave girl of Sarai, gives to the well (between Kadesh and Bered), where she meets the Lord, is Beerlahairoi, meaning the well of the Living One who sees me.

Note, how Hagar describes the Lord. She describes him as the Living One. She also goes on to state that the eyes of the Living One is on her.

Points to ponder:
The Lord is not only Living, for from everlasting to everlasting (Psalms 90:2), he is, but also his eyes are fixed on you and me. He sees us. Out of a well flows water. Out of the the one who believes in the Lord, Living Water  shall flow from him/her (John 7:38-39). When we believe in Jesus,  out of us shall flow the Holy Spirit (Living Water) of God. Can those who look at us say, we are “Beerlahairoi”? meaning that we are the well of the Living One who sees us?

Genesis 16:14 (KJV)
14 Wherefore the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.
