Has anyone ever asked you if God is real? I’m always astounded that anyone could think He’s not. My thought is how on earth can you not believe God exists? It only takes a sunrise, the birth of a child, the change of seasons, a rainbow or a multitude of other things that occur daily to remind us of the existence of God. It just takes a little faith to believe [Matthew 17:20]. People who demand proof don’t understand the meaning of the word faith. “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” [Hebrews 11:1].
Psalm 19:1-6 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens He has pitched a tent for the sun, which is like a bridegroom coming forth from his pavilion, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is hidden from its heat.” All of creation declares God exists.
Romans 1:20 says, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities– His eternal power and divine nature– have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”
I believe part of the reason people don’t recognize God is because we don’t give glory where glory is due. When something happens that is a miracle people tend to talk about how lucky they are or how they “played that one right.” As believers, we need to recognize our life’s purpose is to know Jesus and to make Him known. Is He real? Help prove it by the way you live. As the psalmist said in Psalm 34:5, “Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt His name together.”
