The Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” 

—Genesis 3:9

In Genesis 3:9 we find a very fascinating verse…when God called out to Adam and Eve, “Where are you?”

Obviously, God wasn’t ignorant of where they were or what they were doing. Instead, I believe He wanted Adam and Eve to realize what they had done and come to grips with it

I also believe God is asking you the same question today:  “Where are you?” He is asking, “How are you doing spiritually?”…not for His own sake, but for yours.  He wants you to realize where you are and what you’re doing. And He is asking this question because He loves you too much to let you stay put in your faith and become either sinful or stagnant. 

Too many times we go through our day or week and don’t take a spiritual assessment. And when we do stop and assess where we are…and we’re honest with ourselves…we must answer, “I’m not where I’m supposed to be.”

Let me encourage you today to listen carefully to the voice of the Holy Spirit within you.  He is gently probing and asking you the important questions, to jar you back into reality.

So, “Where are you?”

God is asking, “Where are you?” What will your answer be today?
