Hide

Ge 3:8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

 

Adam and Eve hid from God because they knew they disobeyed Him.  We try to hide our sin from God and from ourselves.  We use words other than the word “sin” to describe our words and actions.  We say “white lie” instead of acknowledging we speak things that are not true.  We find “reason” to do what pleases us at the instant.  We are lazy and lax in obeying the laws God set down for our own good.  I am very good at rationalizing.  All that does is put of the time I must face the truth about an issue or event.  As long as we refuse to look at ourselves in the truth of God’s Word, we are separated from Him.  How to tell if that is the case?  Are our prayers being answered?  Are we seeing God working miracles?  Are the fruits of God’s Holy Spirit growing within us?  God is God.  He has laws He will not disobey by His very nature of Truth.  With God, it is all or nothing.  We either follow Him or we follow Satan.  Who will you follow today?
