How Do I Know If God Is Real?


Have you ever questioned Gods existence? If you have you are not alone. Many people wonder the
same thing. So how can we know that God really exists?
Lets start by looking at an everyday example. If youre like many teenagers, you probably have a
gaming system in your house. The Xbox or PlayStation at your home is complex and has lots of small
complicated parts that make it work. It has controllers, a hard drive, and tons of wiring. All those
complicated pieces have to function together to make the game work properly. All the parts that go into
making the game are too complex to just have happened one day. Your Xbox didn't just show up in
your living room. It had to be put together it had to be created. The complexity of the game system
shows that it had to have a creator.
In the same way our world is complex. The trees, the oceans, animals, and people that make it up are
way too complex to just have happened. We can see that there is evidence of a creator in the world
around us, but it is up to us to choose to believe that creator was and is the one true God. We have to
take what we see in creation and what we read about God and we have to choose to believe it or deny
it. If we believe we express true Biblical faith. We can point to the actions of creation and know without
a doubt that God was the creator.
The Bible says, By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the
things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. (Hebrews 11:3 NKJV)
We see evidence of Gods existence all around us everyday. The trees, the sun, the birds, all speak of a
great creator. When you wonder if God is there or if He really does care about you, stop for a minute
and examine the creation around you. God took the time to create each animal and plant, and most
importantly He took the time to create you. Take some time today to appreciate what God has made.
Praise God for being the creator and sustainer of all things, to Him be the glory forever and ever!
We are blessed to serve an awesome and powerful God, let us hank Him for His love and grace.
With love,
Caleb Taylor
