DOES GOD “REALLY” EXIST?

In a crazy and messed up world like the one we3 live in, can you honestly say that God exists? Does HE truly care about the inhabitants of this world? How do you know? No really, how do YOU personally know that God exists? What are the proofs in your own life that verify to your mind and soul that HE Lives? I came across this in my study today.

The most basic proof of God’s existence is simply what He has made. “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” (Romans 1:20). “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” (Psalm 19:1).

If I found a wristwatch in the middle of a field, I would not assume that it just “appeared” out of nowhere or that it had always existed. Based on the watch’s design, I would assume it had a designer. But there is far greater design and precision in the world around us. Our measurement of time is not based on wristwatches, but on God’s handiwork”the regular rotation of the earth (and the radioactive properties of the cesium-133 atom). The universe displays great design, and this argues for a Great Designer.

If I found an encoded message, I would seek out a cryptographer to help break the code. My assumption would be that there is an intelligent sender of the message, someone who created the code. How complex is the DNA “code” that we carry in every cell of our bodies? Does not the complexity and purpose of DNA argue for an Intelligent Writer of the code?

Not only has God made an intricate and finely tuned physical world; He has also instilled a sense of eternity in the heart of every person (Ecclesiastes 3:11). Mankind has an innate perception that there is more to life than meets the eye, that there is an existence higher than this earthly routine. Our sense of eternity manifests itself in at least two ways: law-making and worship.

Every civilization throughout history has valued certain moral laws, which are surprisingly similar from culture to culture. For example, the ideal of love is universally esteemed, while the act of lying is universally condemned. This common morality “this global understanding of right and wrong points to a Supreme Moral Being who gave us such scruples.

Oh yeah, I believe God exists! I believe He is “real” and I believe that His ways are so superior to ours that it often creates doubts and misunderstanding about His motives and ways. Have some doubts about the existence of God in your life? Drop me a line, e-mail rhobbs7877@gmail.com
