Does God really exist? Well, this is the major question and everyone has
their own opinion about this. According to most folks today, the existence
of God is a fairytale, a myth, an old wives tale, much like Santa Claus.
According to the bible, early man knew that God existed because He
interacted with them. Well, here we are thousands of years later and there
is no God interacting or even speaking to us. Why should we believe what men
wrote from thousands of years ago?
God did not just approach anybody back then. He looked for a man who was
believing in Him. God found favor with Noah. Now Noah was a righteous man,
blameless among the people of his time. And he walked with God.
What pleases God is for us to believe in Him. God wants us to approach
Him via faith. This is what gives Him good pleasure. If God our creator were
to force us to believe in Him, what pleasure would God derive from us
following Him? Would you have pleasure if you could make a spouse love you?
At first perhaps, but not for long. Is God capable of forcing us to believe in Him? Certainly.
Does He do so? No. For what pleasure would He derive from having followers
who follow Him mechanically, robotically? None. God does call us, but it is
up to us to answer. Could God prove to us that
He exists? Of course He could and in fact He has. Does He do it blatantly?
Not today. So where is the proof you ask? In the Book of Romans, Chapter One
He tells us by two ways do we know Him (Oh, a book written by many men you
mean? Well, another topic for another time). One is outwardly, in the
creation that lies all around us. To look at the skies, the planets, stars,
oceans, mountains, forests, teeming with life, we know. Also inwardly, deep
within each and every one of us there is the knowledge that God exists. This
is what He tells us.
So it is a simple matter to denounce His existence because many see no
obvious proof of His existence. Yet others, accept His existence on the
internal subtleties and the external blatancies that exist. Only your inner
eyes can convince your heart of His existence.
Gathering information from your external eyes and incorporating them into
your innermost self can connect the dots for you.
When all is said and done, you will have no
definitive physical proof that would convince the doubting Thomasís of the
world. You will have the proof that you need to know beyond any doubt that
God does in fact exist and that He is in fact real.
