    He said, "Come!" Peter stepped down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, "Lord, save me!" Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand, took hold of him, and said to him, "You of li...

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?" The man said, "I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; so I hid myself." God said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?" Genesis 3:8-9 WEB.

    Adam walked with God Almighty while living in the garden of Eden. Then the serpent talked Eve into disobeying the command of God so 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 Adam and Eve disobeyed the Lord's commandment, the enemy attacked them with shame and fear to drive them even further away. So they 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?" The Lord knew where Adam was 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 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. God's strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). Don't put on a church face to cover your spiritual nakedness, for we are not fooling Him with our religious shenanigans. Just be honest, be yourself, and talk to Him wherever you are without trying to hide 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. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
