Where Do I Go?

When God Says What We Don’t Want To Hear.



God asks a question of us – Where did you go? It’s the first question God asks Adam and Eve when they were hiding in the garden after their sin. It’s question that God continually asks of his people throughout scripture. You cry out to God with your arms full of rocks and he says, let them save you. Then it hits you drop all the rocks on the floor and pause for a moment in silence. Where did I go? Sin Leads us down an unintended path. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death” (James 1:14-15).
