November 8: Where Are You?

Genesis 3:9

And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?


And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?

After the fall of man by transgression, the Bible tells us that the voice of the Lord God came walking in the Garden of Eden in the cool of the day, calling on Adam: “where are thou?” Adam sure had left the place God had placed him. God knew that he was still in the Garden but was not in his place of dominion. Being in the Garden of Eden without being in dominion was as good as being outside the Garden. Even so it is with everyone who is in this world but has lost dominion over life. What good is life without having control of it? What good is a high-speeding car without a steering and brakes? Where you are in is more important than where you are. Your standing in life is more important than where you stand. Adam, where art thou? This was the question God asked Adam in the Garden. Certainly, God knew that Adam had not left the garden. God asked him that question to bring him back to the consciousness of where he was in God’s purpose and plan for him before the fall. He had left the place of authority and influence; he had fallen from grace to grass.

Today, God is still asking mankind: “Where are you?” In other words, where are you in God’s plan and purpose for you. Where are you, in God’s will for you? Where do you stand in God’s plan for you? It is important where you stand; it matters where you are at in destiny. You are meant to be walking with God, fulfilling His plan for you, not doing your own things in disobedience to God. 2 Corinthians 13:5 tells us to examine ourselves whether we are still in the faith and prove ourselves. Adam had shifted grounds, he had left the place God placed him. Though he was still in the garden physically, but spiritually, he had left the place of God’s will for him. You too need to answer that question today: where are you? Are you actually doing what God called you to do or something else? Are you in your place or in another man’s place? Where are you? You need to think and meditate on that question and let the Holy Spirit help you with the answer. And in answering the question, you must be sincere with yourself and honestly review every instruction God once gave you for life and destiny. What did God tell you in the beginning of your life. What has God said concerning you? What has God commanded you to do? Where is your place? You
must walk according to God’s light for you. You must not break ranks, but follow through God’s plan for you, one step at a time, fulfilling God’s purpose for your life.

My Solid Front (Confession): 

In the Name of Jesus Christ, I declare that I stand where God has positioned and appointed me; I refuse to be distracted or swayed by the deceit of the enemy. By the Spirit of God, my feet are firmly planted in God’s will for my life now and always. Amen
