“Then the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” – Genesis 3:9
We can find ourselves in many places, but when it comes to acknowledging the presence of God, we can tend to run away from it. Sometimes we run because we’re afraid, other times we run because we’re insecure. There are many things we can attribute to allowing ourselves to “hide” from Him. What we really need to ask ourselves is what are we really hiding from? Are we truly hiding from God or are we hiding from everything we’ve built up inside us because we don’t want to see it fall apart.
We can attribute our fear to God but in reality, we’re afraid of seeing our pride fall right before our very own eyes. Yes, there are those that have other experiences. There are times when someone that doesn’t really know God will come to place of fear and deal with their issues diﬀerently. However, in this scripture we’re referring to Adam. Someone that walked and talked with God. Someone that knew God’s voice so distinctly and clearly. It was evident, that Adam was His. So as a Christian, when the Lord calls to us and says “Where are you?”. Why is He calling us and what do we do?
Prayer: Father, I pray that I find my path toward you. I may stumble and fall short at times but I know I can get back up to walk in your ways. Help me to hear your voice and answer the call. That I may find you in the midst of a chaotic world. In Jesus Name, Amen!
