“I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” (Genesis 3:10) Why was Adam afraid & hiding? Consider these: Teacher, I heard you were tough, but I was afraid, so I cheated; Boss, I heard you’d be in today, but I was afraid, so I called in sick; Church, I heard what the sermon was about, but I was afraid, so I didn’t go; Spouse, I heard you come home, but I was afraid, so I turned off the computer; God, I heard your voice in my heart, but I was afraid, so I hid behind denial.
In Genesis 3:10 the root meaning of “voice” means “to call aloud.”  So Adam definitely heard God calling him–he wouldn’t have hid if he didn’t. Is there something God’s calling me on but I am hiding from Him? It’s a good sign if there’s a “voice” in my tummy that I can’t seem to get rid of.  This voice does not mean we have to hide; it means we can come OUT of hiding & make something right. We aren’t in trouble with God when we confess our stuff to Him. Rather, the trouble we get in, is when we don’t go to Him at all. There’s alot more trouble in hiding, than standing there, naked in our “crap.”  God can make ALL wrongs right. Out of amazing love, God seeks us when we do wrong. And it’s our gateway to freedom when we let Him.
