Reasons To Believe

     One of the top most arguable questions till today is about God’s existence. About 85% of the people living in this earth have heard about or know about God but still choose not to believe in Him.

    A common argument from atheists and skeptics is that if all things need a cause, then God must also need a cause. Although we cannot prove that God exists, neither can we prove that He exists. As for the questions about where He came from, God is the uncreated Creator who created the universe and everything in it. God is not part of the universe which He created. God is the creator. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made” John 1:1-3. Everything that exists has a cause, nothing can exist without a cause except God, therefore, God is real. Since He is invisible to humanity we can only know Him by means of faith.

    At some point, unbelievers will question  if God really exists. Curiosity will bring their attention to search or know more about His existence. The Prayer of the Skeptic is a prayer about God’s existence. The following prayer is based on Jeremiah 29:12,13: “Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”  If we understand what it means to speak of X, then X exists in the understanding. Like air that we don’t see or feel God is still real. John 1:3 says “All things came into being through him, and apart from him nothing came into being that has come into a being”. Infinite chaos may be a reason for humans to be apart from God Trials can bring us closer to God and make our faith stronger.

   Atheist don’t believe that God exists and probably haven’t heard about his miraculous works. There are many events, in the Bible, where God visited people in their dreams or others were dead and came back to life after seeing what hell looks like. Another argument that by the time people are not looking or interested in knowing God, God himself will make a move to let that person become involved with Him in His own mysterious ways. This will then lead the individual to a leap to faith.  Romans 11:29 says “for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” This means that if God calls anyone, He has a purpose in that individual’s life. Jeremiah 29:11 says For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” With strong faith, everything God says will make sense to the believers, giving them peace of mind and comfort in their hearts.

   God can change your life. Each and everyone’s story is already written by the creator. A reason to believe in God is free will, leading an individual to having their own belief. All arguments are made, but clearly as God said in John 6:47 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes me has eternal life.” God is real. Therefore if all establishment ends, He will know His people, turn His back on the sinners and create a whole new creation.
