Sep 2 – Where are you?

C.S. Lewis, scholar, novelist and broadcaster is well known for writing Chronicles of Narnia and the Screwtape Letters. He once wrote, “We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade the presence of God.” And he is correct. Nobody can hide from the Creator. Adam and Eve, after disobeying God in the Garden of Eden tried, but God found them and asked the question, “Where are you”? He asked not because He didn’t know, to confront them with their attempt to hide. And many still try to hide from the Lord. Oh we may not physically hide as our first parents did, but we hide creatively by evading the reality of a personal God through abuse of alcohol, drugs, pleasure seeking and ignoring what we really know to be true. The Bible encourages us to “be still and know the I am God” and warns, “the fools has said in his heart, there is no God.” Yes, we can ignore God, but we can’t evade Him. He knows where we live.
