Personal God

Today's reading: Genesis 3:8-24

Yesterday we focused on details and lessons about sin from our reading of Genesis 3:8-25. And while I'm grateful for these lessons, what I appreciate even more about this account is the picture it gives us of God along with 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, but it's evident from the text that it was customary for God to interact and converse with them. God coming to the garden to spend time with Adam and Eve was not out of the ordinary. The sense I get from reading these first chapters of Genesis is one of beautiful communion and fellowship between God and Adam and Eve. God didn't create mankind 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 an intimate, interactive relationship with you? Do you talk with God each day? Is it your practice to spend time with Him in His Word? Why are these things so important? 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 a few years ago. God loves you and is waiting with open arms for you to turn to Him!

Tami,

Yes,I am so thankful that I have a personal reationship with God!
I would have to say God is my best Friend amd I do not know what I would
do without Him.
It is not a habit alone that I spend time with Him in prayer and and reading His Word is it my life, I need Him just like I need my breathe!

Tami, I am sure you know and could word it more eloquently and so beautiful more than me, but I would be so miserable since I have known the Lord's love,grace and faithfulness towards me!

I really enjoyed this study today!
I needed it!!
