Hebrews 11:3 (ESV)
By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
Have you ever questioned God’s existence? If you have you are not alone. Many people wonder the same thing. So how can we know if God really exists?
Let’s start by looking at an everyday example. Most people with teenagers probably have a gaming system in your house. The XBox or Playstation at your home is complex and has lots of small complicated parts that make it work. It has controllers, a hard drive, and tons of wiring. All those complicated pieces have to function together to make the game work properly. All the parts that go into making the game are too complex to just have “happened” one day. Your XBOX didn’t just show up in your living room. It had to be put together…it had to be created. The complexity of the game system shows that it had to have a creator.
In the same way our world is complex. The trees, the oceans, animals and people that make it up are way too complex to just have “happened”.
We can see that there was evidence of a creator in the world around us, but it is up to us to choose to believe that creator was God. There is nothing that 100 percent proves God’s existence. There is no scientific study that proves that God is real. If there was every person would believe God exists.
We have to take what we see in creation and read about God in the Bible and we have to choose to believe it. That’s really the definition of faith.
We see evidence of God’s existence all around us every day. The trees, the sun, the birds, all speak of a great creator. When you wonder if God is there or if He really does care about you, stop for a minute and examine the creation around you. God took the time to create each animal and plant and most of all He took time to create you. Take some time today to thank God for everything He has made.
Dear Lord, we thank You for the things all around us that remind us of you and how You love us. Help us to take the time to slow down and see all there is to see. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
