    No, God doesn't have to prove anything to anyone. He knows who He is and that truth doesn't change whether anyone believes it or not.

    As to protection, He doesn't have to do that either nor does He do things out of duty.  God is not obligated to anyone but His own Word.

    His love, grace and mercy is what allows us to fall under His protective shadow when we abide in Him.  If we don't do that, then we aren't under that covering.  However, there are unbelievers who have been protected, but it all falls into the plan of God.

      How the human will have confidence?

    Not at all. Does a mother need to prove that she is there to care for his child? The child himself goes to her or calls her for attracting her attention to him/her. He does not wait or require any proof of her being there.
    Similarly God is there and it is you that have to find and go to him to get his attention. He need not prove for his existence.

    Reality seems to prove that God is not there to protect ANYBODY.  There has never been any confirmed interaction between any human and a God.  And  any perceived intervention can be attributed to mere chance.  So given that chance can account for any perceived intervention, the only way to confirm that there was actually interaction, with God, is for God to prove that He did, indeed, intervene.  Why would God not prove that He is real, and that He is protecting us?  Why didn't He protect that baby who drowned right inside that church in a Baptismal Pool? God didn't even see fit to revive the child, and instead, left the child to die.  This is beyond heartless, given the fact that the mother had prayed to this same God to give her a son...for years.  What kind of PROTECTOR is that?

      Sorry, I may not agree with you. It is not his duty. Suppose a mother has thousands of children, all doing lots of mischiefs and wandering all over there out . If some accident or untoward incident happens, how can she attend to and save the child

      Dear Venkatachari ~I fail to see the comparison you are making. Why would you compare a mortal, earthly, human mother to the omnipotent creator of the universe? I'm talking about Gods, and you're talking about humans. Please come outside the  box.

      I want to establish that just like mother, God who is having billions of children in our form, may not be able to attend to the requirements of all of us at the lapse of others; because He is to take care of all and not at one's cost the other

    No, it's our duty to decide whether we will follow self-concern or love.

    God is Love.

    Self-concern (ego) is the source of all suffering and evil. Most people find it easier to follow their own ego self.

    When we love others as ourselves, and wish for them everything that they desire, then we heal the world and remove some of the suffering to come.

    God is purposefully hidden to get us to grow up! We have to decide if we want to wallow in the action-reaction world of self-concern, or take responsibility for it all and love others as ourselves, forsaking "ego-self."
