Personal God

Today's reading: Genesis 3:8-24

Yesterday when we read Genesis 3:8-25 we focused on details and lessons about sin. And while I'm grateful for these lessons, what I appreciate even more about this account is the picture it gives us of God, and what it shows us about the special relationship God has had with mankind from the very beginning of our world.

We don't know how long Adam and Eve were in the garden before they chose to disobey God and sin, but it's evident from the text that God interacting and conversing with Adam and Eve and His coming to garden to be with them was customary. When I read the creation account, the sense I get is one of beautiful communion and fellowship between God and Adam and Eve. God didn't create man and then leave us to figure out life on our own. He designed us to be in close relationship with Him as our loving Father, and that's precisely what we see from the beginning of time as we know it.

Do you view God as being "personal" and wanting a close, interactive relationship with you? Do you talk with God each day? Is it your practice to spend time with Him in His Word? Tami

P.S. If you'd like to learn more about God's love for you and having a personal relationship with Him, I invite you to listen to this short talk I gave at a conference. God loves you and is waiting with open arms for you to turn to Him!

I talk with God everyday, and the days I really get it right is when I listen to him. I get the greatest satisfaction and feel fulfilled in my work, because he knows where I need to be at all the right times.

So thankful that God is a personal God.
