How did you respond? Did you respond in regards to your current location?
If you answered by stating your location, you are like most of us in our response to this question. Adam answered that way when God asked him and Eve after they had done what God asked them not to.
Genesis 3:8-9, "When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man and his wife heard the LORD God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the LORD God among the trees. Then the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?” (NLT)
What I was really asking you is, “Where are you in regards to your walk with God?” Where are you really? Don’t give me, and better yet yourself, the answer “Oh I am great!” The following is a sort of fact finder for you to do a personal review.
On the line below where would you place yourself in regards to your position to God?
Do you wish you were closer to God?
Are there habits that are in your way?
What about your attitude?
Is your time management in tune with your relationship to God?
Are there relationships that need mending?
Are you part of a church so you can become stronger as a believer?
What will it take to get you closer to Him than you are today?
Do you talk to God on a regular basis, and in turn listen to Him?
Do you know what the word of God has to say and how it applies to your life?
Make a list of the changes and decisions that need to be made.
Now time to get serious and take action. Do the things on your list!
I want you to take one last look at where you placed yourself on that line. Look again with this thought in mind, God did not move, you did. So move on back and take the first step to getting closer to the one who created and loves you. Take action on that list and start today!
I do truly love you and I want to change my location on the line to a position closer to you.
Help me to be honest about the things that have moved me away from you. And then Lord I am going to need your help to take the action to do the things that I put on my list.
Father I do confess that I need your help.
Thank you for always being there; no matter how far away I take my self, you are there.
You are right where I left you when I took my first step away; waiting for my return.
I humbly ask your forgiveness for the items on my lists, those items that have placed a distance between you and I.
Help me to turn around and run with all my heart back to you.
