Before sinning, Adam and Eve they walked among the garden with joy in the Lord that filled them to the core making them laugh and dance in a carefree manner. They lived in the moment and were conscious of nothing except for the love of God.
That all changed the day they ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The same tree God had told them not to eat from.
In an instant, their eyes were opened and innocence disappeared. They became aware of themselves and were embarrassed of their nakedness. The dancing and playfulness stopped as they grew serious about the world around them.
They were ashamed of what they had done and hid in the midst of the garden hoping God would not see them. Genesis 3:8-9 says:
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?”
God did not want Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil because he knew that they would lose their innocence of life. He wanted to protect them from evil.
He also wants to protect you. Let our Heavenly Father reach into the depths of your heart and remove the issue you have been hiding from him.
God did not give up on Adam or Eve. In Genesis 3:21 we learn:
The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.
He still loved and provided for them and he does the same for you. Turn your sin over to God today. Let him remove it from you and set you free.
