Genesis 3:8 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
9 Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”
The LORD was actually in the garden! Both Adam and his wife hid from God, but God knew exactly where they were. One can never outrun or hide from God. Sin will always cause one to hide from God. The awareness that Gods presence is close. Now, the LORD never brings cobdemnation in these times, thats the work of satan, He convicts in His love! God simply asked Adam, as the head of his home, responsible for what took place, "where are you?" Not that He did not know but so to reveal to Adam his newfound distance from God and how that happened. We only need to be honest with ourselves, where do we stand? Where are we at with Him?
