Where Are You?

“The Lord God then called to the man and asked him, ‘Where are you?'” (Genesis 3:9) This is the question that God asked Adam and Eve in the garden after they had eaten of the fruit. They were full of shame and were hiding from God. God didn’t need to ask them this question. He knew where they were. So, why did God ask Adam and Eve where they were?

God asked Adam and Eve this question because He wanted THEM to realize where they were. He wanted them to see that they had turned their backs on Him. He wanted them to see that they had left Him.

God asks each of us this question as well. “Where are you?” Are your eyes focused on Him? Are you running after Him? Are you placing yourself in the center of God’s love for us or are you placing yourself at the center of the universe? Where are you?
