There are a lot of people seeking a “higher power” or “spirituality.” Many doubt or deny that God even exists. They say that if a supreme being does, in fact, exist, he should do something miraculous to prove himself.
In Romans 1:20, the Apostle Paul writes:
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities - his eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” (New International Version)
The entire creation shouts in testimony to the existence of God - the miracle of our bodies, the symmetry of the seasons, the singularity of every snowflake, fingerprint and trace of DNA.
In his Commentary on the Whole Bible, Matthew Henry writes:
“The workman is known by his works. The concurrence of all the parts to the good and beauty of the whole, do abundantly prove a Creator and his eternal power and Godhead.”
The Bible further tells us that if people fail to worship God, the very rocks will cry out in exaltation.
Perhaps the problem for most is not a lack of evidence regarding God’s existence, but rather the desire for a different answer to the question. Atheists are correct in one respect: the god they are searching for does not exist. They seek a god who allows us to do as we please, a god that doesn’t mind if we worship him or not. They want a grandfatherly god that loves indiscriminately and lets everyone come to Heaven no matter what. They are not interested in a holy, righteous God that just might know more than they do about the way the world operates. They’re not interested in truth. They want a god who is satisfied with mediocrity and a relative sense of morality.
Romans 1:21 tells us:
“People knew God perfectly well, but when they didn’t treat him like God, refusing to worship him, they trivialized themselves into silliness and confusion so that there was neither sense nor direction left in their lives. They pretended to know it all, but were illiterate regarding life. They traded the glory of God who holds the whole world in his hands for cheap figurines you can buy at any roadside stand.” (The Message)
God creates human beings in his own image. To deny the existence of God is to deny the highest part of us. All that we know about good and evil, right and wrong all comes from our innate knowledge of God. He is ingrained on every step of the ladder of our DNA.
What more could God do to prove his existence? What else should he do? God rewards those who diligently seek him. He’s not hiding nor is he being evasive. He desires to be found so that he can have a relationship with us. He gave his only son so that we could be reconciled to him. God’s done everything he needs to do. The rest is up to us.
