WHERE ARE YOU?
Genesis 3:9 God calls to Adam and says, “Where are you?”
is important throughout our life to know where we are.
Geographically we have all types of ways to know where
we are: landmarks, handwritten directions, maps.
But now everyone seems to be addicted to GPS, a global
positioning system. Now, at the push of a button you get
directions on getting back home from almost anywhere.
Spiritually speaking, when we talk about coming home to
God, the road will always lead you to the foot of the
cross. When God created you and I, he placed a spiritual
GPS in each of us, preprogrammed for home. This is God’s
Genesis 3:9 is a question that demands an answer from
each of us. I’m sure when God asked Adam where he was,
He knew exactly where he was and why he was there. The
question holds much more meaning than a geographical
is asking each of us the same question today:
Where are you in fulfilling
His purposes in life?
Where are you in fulfilling
Where are you in with the
goals He has directed?
Adam had violated God’s instructions to him. He had
dishonored God’s word and yielded to temptation. He had
been given unlimited potential and was enjoying all the
benefits that God had given to him, but Adam chose
Does any of that sound familiar in your own life?
Are we doing what God created us to do?
Are we being all that we can be to bring honor to the
Kingdom as we enjoy all His blessings?
Have we chosen a life of
mediocrity, when God wants you to travel forward into
your promise land?
You may ask yourself, “With a built-in spiritual GPS,
how do we get off track?”
With any GPS, you can choose to follow the directions or
go your own way. The same holds true for God.
When you choose to go your own way, the voice on your
GPS, the Holy Spirit, will begin to say, “Make an
immediate U turn, turn right and then go straight.” That
road will take you by the cross where Christ paved the
way for you to make it all the way to your heavenly
Sometimes in life we try to trick our spiritual GPS and
make it think we are traveling the right way. You may
think it is working, because you are going through all
of the motions and saying all the right things, but
eventually you will come to a crossroad or a fork in the
road. At this time, you are going to have to make a
Remember, through it all, God knows where you are. Are
you on the main road or a frontage road?
People, countries, and even churches and denominations
face these issues. When society begins to influence our
spiritual GPS, it is time to recalibrate or install a
fresh word update. We have to decide, do we keep moving
forward in political correctness, or follow our
spiritual GPS? Sometimes we have to disconnect and
choose to follow our personal beliefs, even if it means
leaving the group.
You may be saying, “I can’t do this whole life for God
thing. Look around us at the attacks coming from every
direction. How can I withstand everything that is coming
at me, besides, I am only human.
I did mention that you have a GPS in you, but not just
God’s Positioning System. He also installed God’s Power
System in you...Acts 1:8.
