When God Walks


Genesis 3
What does the God sound like when He walks?
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.” (3:8, NIV)
Is it the sound of wind rustling through the trees? Is it a rumble as the earth moves beneath His feet? Does the thunder roll ahead of Him announcing His coming? Is there the sound of rushing water? What does God sound like when He comes?
However He may manifest Himself I only ask that He clear away the noise in my life so that I don’t miss the sound of His coming to me or the words that He wishes to speak.
I ask that He keep me close to Him this day so that when I come to its end I will not be ashamed of what I have said or done and feel the need to hide myself from Him—as if I could!
If I listen for His sound, and if I take heed to His words when He speaks, I will likely not have any reason to hide when the end of this day comes.

  1. Great thoughts, Lynda! I just read Genesis 1-3 yesterday and must admit I wondered some of the same things. Your observation is excellent, "However He may manifest Himself I only ask that He clear away the noise in my life so that I don't miss the sound of His coming to me or the words that He wishes to speak." He reminds me so often to...'be still' and know that He is God! Thanks for this post!
