Is God Real?
Many years ago while I was searching for truth I asked the question, “Is God Real?”I grew up in a church that really didn’t teach much except to be afraid of God, lots of rules and ways to behave, I still struggled to know if God was real and how is He relevant in my life?
After searching, studying and speaking with other Christians I know He’s real, operating in every way through your life. Do you wonder does God even know who I am?
This is what the Bible tells us:
- He knew you in the womb: Psalm 139:13
- He set you apart: Psalm 4:3
- He counts the hairs on your head: Matthew 10:30
- He knows what you need before you ask: Matthew 6:8
- He hears your prayers: 1 John 5:14
- He blesses you: Psalm 67:6
- He protects you: Proverbs 2:8
- Jesus prays for you: John 17:6
- The Holy Spirit guides you: John 16:12-13
- He has a plan for you: Jeremiah 29:11
- His love for you endures forever: Psalm 100:5
- His kingdom never ends: Luke 1:33
- He makes a place for you there: John 14:3
The Bible points us to Scripture many times of God knowing you, intimately, even before you were born. You see the Holy Spirit that is given to us the moment we believe and surrender our lives to Christ will show us the way and the truth that can set you free. Maybe you feel the weight of life upon you and you just want to break free of those chains, you can, if you believe in the One and Only True God, Jesus Christ.
The Bible is not a fable, it’s truth speaks to us and works as a guidebook, it’s rich history and lessons stand every generation. Reading through God’s word you can see the Holy Spirit guiding men and women who have listened and took action to what God had for them. If you feel that somehow this doesn’t make sense to you, then pray and ask. You will get your answer, seeking God for answers will help you get to know the great God that is over us and you will know God is real when you do.
God had a greater plan when He sent His Son to this world, living 33 years and the last three in ministry and instruction, what Jesus accomplished has changed the world. He fulfilled what the prophets spoke about, a Savior that would come and be a sacrifice for us, for forgiveness of sins.
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Apostle Paul says:
Hebrews 9:26 Otherwise Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But he has appeared once for all at the culmination of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself.
If you still don’t understand who God is and if He is real, the first place to start to know Jesus in the Gospel Matthew, that will show you the genealogy of Jesus and miracle virgin birth God did through Mary. God is real and is around us everywhere, leading you to Himself, so that you will have an eternal home, but you must trust God for this and have faith!
