Have you ever wondered if God really exists?
On several occasions in the last month, I’ve received negative comments on my social media feeds from people who don’t believe in God. One of the comments that really stuck with me was:
This would be a great resource, if God really existed. All comments welcome.
Now a blog post won’t cover the entire spectrum of this topic by any means, but today I wanted to share a few points if you need proof that God exists or if someone you know needs proof that God exists.
Because the God I serve not only exists, he is alive and actively working through his spirit on this earth as he reigns from heaven.
While I sincerely hope to provide insight to you about the existence of God, keep in mind that believing in God obviously requires faith to believe what one cannot directly see.
I can’t see air. But I know that it is there because I see the effects of air when the wind blows.
I’ve seen so much of God in my lifetime that there is NO way that I could deny his existence. He has made himself known to me in so many overwhelming ways, including his word, the actions and words of other people, and his creation. For today, let’s take a look at his creation. Check out a few beautiful photos from my summer mission trip to Africa.
While I was in Africa, I couldn’t help but think about this passage from Paul:
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. Romans 1:18-20
Paul is telling us that God clearly reveals himself through nature.
I recently discovered an incredible resource that offered the following statistics if you’ve ever wondered it God really exists.
- Did you know that it takes 2 million flowers to make just 1 lb of honey?
- Did you know that bees actually dance in order to communicate geolocation? Forget satellites and GPS!
- Did you know that wolves can smell other animals over 1.5 miles away?
- Did you know that camels can close their noses during sand storms?
The following video is from The Master Designer dvd series. Check it out!
You can find The Master Designer dvd here for more information. This DVD sparked wonderful conversation with my kiddos and I’m sure it will for yours too!
I’d like to close this post with a list of five incredible resources for uniting faith and fact in beautiful honor of the Creator of the universe. Here we go!
I read this book in college many years ago. (I won’t say how many.) Even as one who grew up attending church, I learned so much from this wonderfully analytic and curious resource.
This company is wonderfully rich in resources like the DVD preview I provided above.
While I’m way overdue on a trip to the Creation Museum, this Blue Ray is also available in downloadable format at a fraction of the cost. Perfect for at-home science class!
I also read this book way back in college. Lee has such a way of providing details that stop and make us think about creation.
5.That’s Where God Is
This book is an incredible resource of children and adults alike! If you want your children to truly understand how to seek God in everyday life, this beautiful resource will help you accomplish just that.
Have a great day and I’ll see you tomorrow!
