Just today somebody asked me, “What convinced you there is a God?” Here is my response –
Every area of science that I know – Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Astronomy have made great discoveries displaying “Order and Intelligence” beyond human imagination and this convinces me God exists.

Ultimately, Justice demands it; History records it; Miracles prove it; all life on earth displays it and the Bible says the Heavens declare it!
Silently, inside of my heart, the Holy Spirit, who long ago transformed my life, bears witness to it.
It is through faith that I know it and by revelation that I receive it. Through answered prayer God proves it and in worship I have felt it.
