God confronted Cain concerning the death of Abel with a question: “Where is Abel your brother?” Cain answered God with a question instead of confessing the truth: “How should I know? Am I his babysitter?” (Message) Have you ever experienced a “Cain moment” and refused to answer God’s question concerning your sin? Perhaps like Cain you challenged God with a question of your own in order to deny the responsibility of sin. Cain’s refusal to admit the truth took him to No-Man’s-Land, a place without the presence of God.
If you are struggling and wonder where God is in your life ask yourself: “Have I left God’s presence and chose to live in No-Man’s-Land?” How do you go home? Take time to confess and repent of denied sin and God will give you a free ticket home.
