In the past when the Lord would come and meet them in the garden, they would be ready to meet Him. But this time they had run away and hid themselves. But the Lord, who knew exactly where they were, calls out and asks humanity one of the most important questions, Where are you? It’s a question that we need to ask ourselves. Where are you when it comes to your relationship with God?
1. Are you covering things up?
Genesis 3:7 ‘Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.’
Trying to make things look better than they are never works with God. It may work on Facebook, but God sees through all our attempts at covering things up.
Proverbs 28:13 ‘He that covers his sins shall not prosper: but whosoever confesses and forsakes them shall have mercy.’
2. Are you hiding anything from God?
Genesis 3:9-10 The LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”
We can never hide anything from God. He sees all, knows all and loves us all the same.
Hebrews 4:13 ‘Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.’
So we see that it is a futile thing to cover up things or to try and hide. Where are you? Is there any aspect that needs to be brought into the light? Do you need to step out of the shadows and into His glorious light?
