    But as they sailed, he fell asleep. A wind storm came down on the lake, and they were taking on dangerous amounts of water. They came to him, and awoke him, saying, 'Master, master, we are dying!' He awoke, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water, and they ceased, and it was calm. He said t...

    Flow Through Me from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about something that is at the very core of knowing Jesus: the Holy Spirit. This is fundamental stuff, but sometimes we build our doctrines so high that we can no longer see the foundation, yet it is very important tha...

    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; Isaiah 64:6 KJVAs the preacher looked over the congregation, pondering his next victim, I sank lower and lower in my chair. He always chose someone at random from the congregation to pray, so everyone tried to avoid ...

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.
