Hebrews 11:6 It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him.
If God is real, then why do bad things happen? That was one question Naana couldn’t answer. Even though her parents and all the teachers at Sunday School insisted God was real, sometimes Naana just wasn’t sure. They all told her she just needed to believe, but believe in what exactly?
All Christians ask that question at some point. Yes even your parents and your pastor! People have been asking that question for generations and it’s a hard one so they tend to shy away from giving real answers. But you’re wise to ask questions. When Thomas insisted on proof that Jesus really had risen from death, Jesus gave Thomas evidence. He will do the same for us. Asking God questions shows you trust Him enough to know the answer. And that really is the beginning of faith.
God can’t be proven like a science experiment or a math problem, but we can see evidence of Him everywhere. In nature; it is orderly, consistent and so beautiful there has to have been a designer. Human behaviour; everyone is uniquely different. We could have all been exactly alike. Moral compass; that thing that tells you the difference between right and wrong even when you say you don’t believe in God. The miracle of Jesus Christ; history, anthropology and archaeology all proven his existence and that the Bible is true. The Bible itself is a wonder that points to how real God is. Real truth stands up under questioning. Never be afraid to ask an honest question.
Think About This
There are so many ways you can see that God is real, why don’t you look for some and if you get stuck you can always ask Him for help
Are you real? Please let me get to know you in an honest and open way. Help me believe in you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
