There Is A God In Heaven

        Many today question the belief in God. Countless others have a vague belief with great misconceptions of what God is really like. To some He is only a figment of the imagination. God is a disappointment to some because He doesn't do exactly what they want Him to do. Many want God's blessings but not God. He is someone to call on in emergencies. Like the ancient Greeks, many ascribe to God their own passions and then wonder why He doesn't help them.

        Man's religion and his God must be real and living in order to help him. However, a God who could be comprehended by the finite mind would be powerless, being as weak as a man. Although we may not understand Him, this does not mean that He does not exist. There is much evidence that God is alive and active and not just a dream of hopeless man.

  1. A Creation Evidences a Creator. In the words of Psalm 19.1-3: "The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and the firmament is declaring the work of His hands." Creation demands intelligence, design and acting force. These are things that are associated with personality, and that personality is God.

  2. The Universal Concept of God Proves His Existence. All nations and tribes have a religious instinct and a universal belief in a divine being. Cicero once said: "There is no nation so barbarous, no race so savage, as not to be firmly persuaded of the being of a God."

  3. Man's Ability to Conceive of God Presupposes the Existence of God. If there is no God, how could such an idea have originated in the human mind? The fact that men everywhere have conceived of a God shows that there is a reality behind the conception.

  4. The Bible is Proof That There Is a God. No one else could have given the world a book that has had so great an influence on the world. All it teaches and reveals show there is a God. Romans 1.20 aptly states: "Since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power, and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse."

  5. The Assumptions of the Unbeliever Prove the Existence of God. If one doesn't believe in God, he must assume marvelous results without definite cause. He must also assume the eternity of matter. Finally, he must assume that he knows and sees all or else that which he does not know or see may be God.
        Truly, it is a foolish man who has said there is no God. (Psalm 14.1.) As men lose faith in Divinity they lose faith in humanity! Where God is outlawed, there men are subjugated. Men without God become selfish, irresponsible, immoral and cruel. All evidence points to God. By faith we accept Him in our lives today as One who guides us toward Eternal Life. "In Him we live, and move, and exist." (Acts 17.28.) Surely we should take the advice of Jesus: "Have faith in God." (Mark 11.22.)
There Will Always Be God

They cannot shell His temple
Nor dynamite His throne;
They cannot bomb His city,
Nor rob Him of His own.

Though all the world be shattered,
His truth remains the same;
His righteous laws still potent,
And "Father" still His name.

Though we face war and struggle,
And feel their goad and rod,
We know above confusion,
There will always be God!
