Does God Exist?

hand reaching out to touch God

The Bible does not attempt to prove the existence of God. Does God exist?  God declares that He does.

He feels no need to validate himself. He is confident that man cannot deny Him because so many externals (that which is extra-biblical) authenticate Him.

The burden is never on God to prove that He exists. Rather, the burden is on man to prove He doesn’t.

Hence, God in His Word, the Bible, plainly declares that only a fool would say that there is no God. Psalm 14:1.

Nature confirms the existence of God.

Creation cannot deny this truth. (Psa. 19 :1 "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shews His handiwork.")

Rom. 1 :20 points out that creation clearly reveals God. We can understand the existence and nature of God through His very creation. As such, we are without excuse.

We know God is because we can’t see and experience nature and not realise it.

The existence of God is certain and clearly apparent that we can either acknowledge it or deny it.

Interestingly, whatever view we hold, God is no way increased or magnified by our belief. Neither is He diminished by our unbelief.

Yet God longs for us to seek and find Him, and know Him.

God has given us the written Word, a revelation of Himself and His very heart, preserved through the ages, so that we may become acquainted and related to Him. Isaiah 55:6.

More importantly, God has given us His only Son, the physical and human revelation of Himself and His very being.

God lowered Himself to our level of seeing and understanding, so that we may become reconciled and related to Him. John 3:16. John 14:6.

Human life proves that God exists

We know we cannot exist nor remain to exist on our own. Someone is supporting our existence.

Deep within we all know that. The fact that people needed to create Atlas means deep inside each man is the understanding that a greater being is sustaining life.

Atheists can prove that God exists

The atheist who is unafraid of discovering God will find Him for God wants to be found.

He longs for you to know Him, not for His sake but for yours. God is agape love that He desires man’s ultimate good.

And no ultimate good can come if God is not in it. Why have good enough when you can have ultimate good?

Daily living proves the existence of God

I know there is a God because this unnatural supernatural peace, assurance and guidance can’t come randomly. Someone is there all the time.

He answers my prayers. He answers the prayers I should have prayed.

When I sincerely seek for direction, He leads me. When I digress form the good path, at some point in my life, I am brought back.

When I suffer the heaviest blows, at some point, I am bounced back.

We know God is because our mind, spirit, heart, and conscience know the fact.

(Rom. 2 :15, "Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another." 

Our genetics prove that God exists.

Our very DNA bears the stamp of God. Every bit of us is traced back to Him. We are created after God’s image, after His likeness. (Gen. 1:26, 27 "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.")

Our very nature will acknowledge Him, maybe not now, but ultimately in the end, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess the existence and sovereignty of God. (Phil 2:10)

Desire to See

We can engage in debates or listen through long discourses that delve into the topic of the existence of God. Or we can, in sincerity and objectivity, commune within the spirit in us, and ask God to simply help us see and experience Him in a way that clarifies the truth for us.

After all, if God doesn’t exist, you’d have absolutely nothing to lose. But if He does, you have everything to lose, in this life and in the next
