8Then 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. 9But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” – Genesis 3:8-9
Before the fall of man, every day Adam and Eve would spend time walking with God during the cool of the day. They set aside a specific time to meet with God, speak with Him, and just be in His presence. Those who have successfully incorporated worship into their daily lives do the same: they set aside a regular time to meet with God and experience His presence through prayer and reading His Word.
God always intended for us to live a lifestyle of worship before sin entered the picture and separated man from God. We see God calling out to Adam and Eve in the scripture because God is faithful and He is constantly looking to spend time with His children. If you are struggling with incorporating worship into your daily life, I encourage you to examine your heart and your life to identify what sin is keeping you from spending time with God. God is always there; He is just waiting on us to seek Him.
