Does God Exist?
One of the most important conclusions you can come to is that God indeed exists. For some people that realization comes rather quickly and easily. It takes others a longer time. If you can’t see Him standing in front of you, the question becomes, do I have limited sight in this human shell or does He not exist? Well, it’s easy to prove that we do not have fullness of sight here on earth. These bodies of ours will, in a brief span of years, be dust.
Let’s go back to the year 400 AD. If you were asked what your chair were made of, you very likely would reply, “Wood.” Just wood? “Yes, I used wooden pegs to hold the pieces together.” You might also tell the type of wood, but that would be about the extent of your conversation. It would be many centuries before you could tell the inquisitive fellow that the wood was composed of atoms and molecules. You had no microscope by which to acquire that knowledge. Does that mean that the chair in 400 AD was not composed of atoms and molecules? Of course not. But you only had partial knowledge. Fuller knowledge would come later.
In like manner, every year we read about new scientific discoveries, evidence that the year before our sight was less clear.
It is likewise with God. I must admit that, although I am not able to see Him with my eyes, that does not discount the possibility of His existence. So the question remains: does God exist?
I look at the world around me, the beauty of each unique animal and plant. Their intricacies. I see towering mountains. And the oceans! They almost cry aloud as evidence for a god. Looking at the stars in heaven, knowing that we see the smallest fraction of a universe beyond our comprehension. And then you realize that there had to be a beginning to it all countless centuries ago.
How can one believe that nothing interacted with nothing to create something as glorious as this universe? When did zero plus zero ever equal anything other than zero? Not only was something made; it was intricate and miraculous, far beyond the scope of mere chance. A higher intelligence and power than man’s clearly created this universe. In other words, God.
Romans 1:18-21 tells us, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.”
Will you acknowledge God? Or do you wish to be your own god and deny Him? The choice is majesty and glory versus pride and dust. Spend time studying God’s Word in the Bible and praying for God to open your heart to Him.
