    For the vision is yet for the appointed time, and it hurries toward the end, and won't prove false. Though it takes time, wait for it; because it will surely come. It won't delay. Habakkuk 2:3 WEBAbout thirty years ago, the Lord gave me a word that I would be a pioneer of new things in ministry, and...

    And the king spoke with them, and among all of them none was found like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. Therefore they stood before the king. And in every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and encha...

God Called to the Man

  • They heard Yahweh God's voice walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of Yahweh God among the trees of the garden. Yahweh God called to the man, and said to him, 'Where are you?' Genesis 3:8 WEB

    Adam walked with God in the garden of eden. Then the serpent talked Eve into disobeying the command of God so that she could have the knowledge of 'Good and Evil.' Since they already had the knowledge of good, they only lacked the knowledge of evil. The call of the dark side overcame them both. Then immediately after they disobeyed the Lord, the enemy brought shame and fear on them in order to drive them even further away. Adam and Eve hid in the trees from the presence of the Lord.

    I find it comforting that the Almighty God, the Creator of heaven and earth, came down and called to Adam. He said to him 'Where are you?' God knew exactly where Adam was, even better than Adam did. Yet instead of pointing directly at him, God called to Adam and waited for him to answer. God gave Adam space, and called for him from a distance. He could just have easily struck Adam with a lightning bolt, or picked him up by his ear, but instead He waited for Adam to answer Him on his own. Where are you?

    When you stumble, God will always call for you. You can run, but you can't hide from the presence of the Lord. The mistakes that you have made, He already knows about so there is nothing to hide from. Jesus has already paid for your sin, even the ones in your future. With a simple prayer, you can have a clean slate and be washed as white as snow. So don't try to cover up your mistakes. Instead, learn from them. His strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). Don't put on a church face for we are not fooling Him with our religious shenanigans. Just be real, be yourself, and talk to Him wherever you are without hiding from His presence.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You today for Your mercy. I pray that You draw my heart to You and teach me to hear Your voice clearly. May Your will be done, in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Our weekly RHM Live church service will be happening this morning at 10am EST. Join us for a time of worship, interactive prayer, and fellowship, and to hear what has been happening recently in our lives.
