Monday Morning
"Where are you?"

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as He was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called out to the man, "Where are you?" -- Genesis 3:8-9

Have you ever heard God call out to you? "Morris, where are you?" "Frank, Craig, Willie, Sylvia, where are you?" "Johnny, Jimmy, Amy, Tom, where are you?"

Why was God calling out to Adam? Let me take a few liberties here of what I envision: To me it is kind of obvious that this was a daily routine, if you will, between God and Adam and Eve. For them to hear the sound of God as He was walking in Eden. And I envision Adam and Eve seeking God out and saying, "There You are, glad to see You today." And they would fellowship.

But this day was different. Adam and Eve heard but did not seek God out -- They hid from God. Yet, yet --- God called out, "Where are you?"

I believe God enjoys our fellowship. That is part of why He called out to Adam and Eve. He enjoys being among what He created.

Is God having to call out to you or do you hear and sense His everyday presence and  seek Him out on your own? As husband and wife, do you seek Him out?

Bottom Line: May we know that God enjoys our fellowship. And, may we seek Him out everyday! Amen? Amen.
