Bible Verse for Today
“And they heard the voice 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 amongst the trees of the garden. And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?” (Genesis 3:8-9)
God wants to walk with us in the “cool of the day” when we are just relaxing and “chilling out”, that time when we are usually talking to ourselves, making decisions and plans for the day and the future. He wants to be in on those inner conversations we have about our jobs and our relationships.
It is obvious from the previous verses that God was used to just walking with His creation in the cool of the day, fellowshipping with him and was greatly disappointed when that bond was broken by the fall of man.
It is apparent from these Old Testament scriptures that God desired to walk amongst and be one with His creation, especially those who were obedient to His statutes and sought His face diligently. In the New Testament God by His spirit dwells in all believers who have accepted His son Jesus Christ. A dwelling is one thing, to walk with is quite another.
God wants to do more than dwell with us
God wants to do more than dwell with us. He wants to walk with us and be involved in every part of our lives. God wants to listen to our daily concerns and give us advice on how to handle whatever life throws our way.
It’s should always be the cool of the day when it comes to our relationship with God, we should talk everywhere about everything, not just about what we want or what we need. Open up to God, He’s a good listener! God bless you all.

Teach us to remember that there is no aspect of life that you’re not interested in. We promise to seek God first in everything! In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
