How Do You Know God Is Real?
The Moral Code
If God wasn't real, you wouldn't have a moral code written in your soul. God designed every cell in your body, not to mention the universe. He knows our every thought, every feeling and every desire. There is nothing you can't share with him and there is nothing that can stop you from having a relationship with him. You can deny his existence but no matter how hard you try to make him go away, he's there and he wants nothing more to relate with you; the same way he related with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Deep down you know right from wrong, but why is that? Do you really honestly think that's by accident? That is hardly the case. God created you for a purpose and that purpose was to have a relationship with him through Jesus Christ, his one and only son who died on the cross for you. How incredible is that? God not only created you but he gave up his son for you so that you may have eternal life in heaven with him. You no longer have to fear death. You can embrace an eternal future with the one who loves you more than you can ever imagine.
The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith. ~ 1 Timothy 1:5
Look at the incredible universe that we live in. God designed the moon, the stars and the planets to align perfectly. That wasn't an accident. He designed our bodies in such a way that no human has the ability to duplicate his efforts. We have skyscrapers, not by our own efforts but by our God given abilities. Scientists have the power to create theories but God doesn't need theories. He doesn't need formulas or tools. He creates with his Word. In order to grasp that concept, you have to have faith. Noone in history has ever created a human from scratch and noone ever will. You can take a million scientists and put them in a great big lab and not one of them has the power to create what God has done. They will never create a planet, a human, a tree, etc. Nature is God's territory and no matter how much man wants to feel in control of this finite world, they will come up short because God created the universe and everything in it.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. ~ Genesis 1:1
God's Word will stand the test of time forever. Many assume that the Bible was written by a bunch of men, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. God breathed his Word into these men so that we would have a relationship with God. Every Word in the Bible has the power to connect you to God. Memorizing scripture will enrich your life in many ways, especially when you are ill or suffering for whatever is ailing you. Reading the Bible will strengthen your relationship with God. The Bible will help you understand who you are, why you are here and what your purpose in life is. You are precious in God's eyes and he created you out of his love for you. God didn't have to create us. He wanted to create us. He wants to have a relationship with us through his son, Jesus. He wants us to place him first in our lives and to acknowledge him in all our ways. The closer you get to God, the more peace you will have. You may be surrounded by utter chaos but internally as long as God is held dearly in your heart, you will have a peace that no man can ever take away. You can lose your home, your job, your family and your good health because we live in a fallen world, but you never have to lose your relationship with God. He loves every broken piece of your heart and he wants nothing more than to glue it back together, love you and care for you. What more could you ever wish for in a world where the life that you have is fleeting and gone before you know it?
"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." —Hebrews 4:12
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. ~ 2 Timothy 3:16
