The Lord called to Adam, Where are you?"Genesis 3:9 NLT How many times a day does God want to speak to you and God cannot get a word in edgewise? The Lord might say, "I have wanted to talk to you for a long time, but you are too busy. This morning I wanted to talk to you, but you didn't have time for me. Last night, you watched TV and talked on the phone. You never opened the Word. You never prayed. At lunch I tried to say something, but your prayer was so fast. You're so busy. Why haven't you kept your appointment with me?"
Remember how Adam had an appointment with God everyday in the Garden of Eden? He would hear the voice of the Lord in the garden in the evening. One day Adam missed that appointment because of sin. God said to Adam, "Where are you"? God has been asking you the same thing. Where are you? There is no other appointment worth keeping more than this one. Time to readjust your schedule and your priorities.
Prayer: Almighty God, help me to see that I cannot afford to miss my appointments with you. Help me O God not to waste time or ever take for granted the most powerful moment of the day. I need Your help to keep this in perspective. In Jesus Name, Amen.
