For a Christian, it’s hard to even ask that question. But, for many people today, our culture has instilled this idea in many people’s heads that they should not believe in God. As many Atheists will ask; “Where is your God………I don’t see him. So, you believe in a fairy tale?”
There are two better questions to ask yourself that might help you understand why you believe you don’t believe in God. The first is the Atheist’s question.
To someone like me, that question is silly. I look around me at the trees that clean our air, the sunshine that creates chlorophyll to allow plants to live, the birds who find food every day, the changes in a woman’s body as it prepares to protect and nourish a new baby and I see intelligent design in all these things. It’s impossible to deny. God’s handiwork is everywhere you look, even if you don’t actually see Him. So when you hear somebody ask; “why can’t I see God?” The answer is that you can see evidence of God in every place on earth and in the sky.
The second thing to consider is God’s supernatural essence. He is not a mortal human like we are with the limits of human knowledge limiting His abilities. The Bible says He can be in all places at all times and knows the number of hairs on the head of every human on earth. This goes far beyond our ability to comprehend, but it is because God is not limited in His abilities as we are. It is important to make that distinction.
Too many people believe that if they can’t do something, then God can’t do it either. That is just not the case. Many people who are Atheists might believe that they are people with a high level of intelligence and if they can’t do something, then there is no other being capable of the same thing. But God is not a mortal being; he is supernatural. We can’t understand His abilities, but have to have trust that He has them. That is called faith.
These are things you should think about if you have denied God’s existence. They put things in the proper context and allow you to think outside the box. Also, you a one of God’s children. He loves you. He never wants to be separated from you. That is why you should accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. You can then get to know God better.
