Have you ever known anybody who does not believe that God exists? There are many who hold this point of view in the world today. In our current culture, it is not unexpected that this view would be widely held because of the acceptance of the Theory of Evolution as a fact and other thoughts about the creation of man, this world and the universe.
The foundation for such widely held beliefs about the existence of man and the universe is that from a complete void in space, something came from nothing. When you think about it, you realize this is impossible. It doesn’t matter how many billions of years go by, nothing cannot produce something. Not anything. And here is another consideration: Where did the spark of life come from? Makes you wonder doesn’t it?
When you go back to this reality, then seeking an alternative reason for man’s existence and the existence of the universe doesn’t seem so crazy.
Coming to understand these impossibilities leads to considering an alternative explanation to the existence of man who has life, a world with all the air, water and food needed for mankind to survive, and a well designed universe that functions perfectly.
When you look at it this way, it doesn’t seem so “unintellectual” to consider the alternative that God does exists and in fact created all these things, does it?
Here’s the catch. In order to find God you must believe that He exists. God says that if you reach out to Him, you will find Him. This is how you can know that God really exists.
Hebrews 11:6 NIV And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and rewards those who earnestly seek him.
When God created man He created him in His own image. This means that mankind has intellect and the power to reason. So, which is easier to believe; That all things came from a complete void in space, or that God created all things?
God tells you that if you have even faith as small as a mustard seed and believe that He exists and reach out to Him, then you will find Him. And when you find Him, you will discover your purpose for living, and be rewarded in ways you cannot even imagine.
So, why not step out in faith and reach out to God? Use the God-given intelligence and reasoning power He has already given you and find out for yourself that God really does exist and wants to know you!
