Where are you? God longs to be in one-on-one conversation with us. And so God takes the initiative in coming toward us and asking this question. Think about this for a moment. We are not starting the conversation with God from scratch. God has already begun it. We just need to plug into the conversation that is already going on. One way for us to do this is to respond to this question.
—Trevor Hudson, Questions God Asks Us (Upper Room Books, 2008)
If God asked, “Where are you?” how would you answer? Join the conversation.
The LORD God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”
—Genesis 3:9 (CEB)
