Genesis 3:8-9 "And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”
What a powerful scripture!
Where are you?
This was probably one of the saddest moments in history. Adam and Eve, in their shame, hid themselves from the Lord, and when God came looking for them He called out, "Where are you?"
It's not that God didn’t know where they where; it was a deeper question than that.
Where are you? What is the condition of your heart? What is your spiritual condition right now? Where is the REAL you? What's REALLY going on?
I believe today that God is asking this question. Where are you?
In church, we often talk about us seeking God, but God is also looking for us. He's looking for you. He's looking to see what condition His bride is in.
You know, this question was first raised in the very beginning of Genesis, but as we reach the end of the age and the return of Jesus Christ being so imminent, I hear the Holy Spirit calling out to a people unprepared, saying WHERE ARE YOU?
2 Peter 3:13-14 "Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Be Steadfast therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless;"
I believe the urgency of the Spirit right now is for cleansing and purification of his people. Ask yourself today "Where am I?" How is the Lord going to find me?
I don’t know about you, but you want to be found by Him in peace. I want to be found faithfull and serving God with all diligence and strength.
By God's grace, we can do it!
Where are you? You don't have to hide anymore you can come out of the shadows and come clean. You can be cleansed. You can be washed and you can be set right, back on track burning brighter than ever before.
Father I know that You are calling out to the lost and broken. You're calling out to the banished ones, and the damaged ones. Saying where are you? It's time to come home. We choose to come home in Jesus' name, Amen!
