Genesis 3:8-9

Where are you? Why are you hiding?

The man and his wife heard the sound of Yahweh God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. But Yahweh God called to the man. 'Where are You?" he asked. 'I heard the sound of you in the garden,' he replied. 'I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.' 'Who told you that you were naked?' The man replied, 'It was the woman you put with me; she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.' Then Yahweh God said to the woman,' Why did you do that?' The woman replied, 'The snake tempted me and I ate.'

Focus of First Half of Spiritual Journey

Where are you? This is one of the great questions of all time. It is the focus of the first half of the spiritual journey…In Genesis 3 it is the question God asked when Adam and Eve had taken off for the underbrush after their disobedience…This marvelous story of creation is not just about Adam and Eve. It is really about us. It is a revelation of where we are. The same question is addressed to every generation, time and person. At every moment of our lives, God is asking us, "Where are you?" Why are you hiding?"

Pray Psalm 119:10. With my whole heart I will seek you…
