Walking in the Garden

Genesis 3:8. Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God moving about in the orchard at the breezy time of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the orchard.

When we create something we like to look at and admire it from time to time. God is the same. He moved about in the Garden of Eden in a way that could be seen and heard by the people He created. He apparently enjoyed His walks and visits with them as He called out to them. But sin had entered into His creation and God cannot be in the presence of sin. Actually, sin cannot stand in the presence of God. Sin must try to hide itself from God’s Light. God no longer walked or moved in His creation in a way mankind could hear or see. Generations of mankind would come and go with just but a few being able to hear God. Our question is what sin are we trying to hide from God? As He knew where Adam and Eve were and what they had done, God already knows what sin we are hiding in our hearts and minds. Let us be open and honest with ourselves and confess to ourselves our sin so we may be cleansed and forgiven. As we’ll read later, we no longer need by away from the Presence of our God.
