#4988 – God Exists

Good morning people who please God by believing that He exists.

Hebrews 11:6 NIV And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Faith, not understanding, pleases God. And the first step of faith is a belief in God’s existence.

Far too many highly educated and exceptionally knowledgeable people do not believe God exists. I find this both sad and crazy.

David Attenborough is one of the most committed and educated pursuers of God’s creation on the planet. His passion can be seen in his many beautifully crafted documentaries, including the nine natural history documentary series forming the Life collection…

…yet he does not have confidence in the existence of Life (God) Himself!

Paul put it succinctly in the following verse:

Romans 1:20 NIV 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 people are without excuse.

Faith – not understanding – is essential to being born again. And the central and most important step of faith is believing that God exists. The signposts are very clear.

Tomorrow we will step into where I believe Father wants us to head for a prolonged period of time. I can’t wait!
