How Do I Know If God Is Real?

How to Know if GOd is real

Have you ever questioned God’s existence? If you have you are not alone. Many people wonder the same thing. So how can we know if God really exists?

Let’s start by looking at an everyday example. If you’re like many teenagers, you probably have a gaming system in your house. The XBox or Playstation at your home is complex and has lots of small complicated parts that make it work. It has controllers, a hard drive, and tons of wiring. All those complicated pieces have to function together to make the game work properly. All the parts that go into making the game are to complex to just have “happened” one day. Your XBOX didn’t just show up in your living room. It had to be put together…it had to be created. The complexity of the game system shows that it had to have a creator..

In the same way our world is complex. The trees, the oceans, animals and people that make it up are way too complex to just have “happened”.

We can see that there was evidence of a creator in the world around us, but it is up to us to choose to believe that creator was God. There is nothing that 100 percent proves God’s existence. There is no scientific study that proves that God is real. If there was every person would believe God exists.

We have to take what we see in creation and read about God in the Bible and we have to choose to believe it. That’s really the definition of faith.

The Bible says it like this: “By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.” (Hebrews 11:3 NLT)

We see evidence of God’s existence all around us everyday. The trees, the sun, the birds, all speak of a great creator. When you wonder if God is there or if He really does care about you, stop for a minute and examine the creation around you. God took the time to create each animal and plant and most of all He took time to create you. Take some time today to thank God for everything He has made.

    You know god is real when you hear his voice and see his face right?Wrong you know god is real when you accept him in your heart and 100% truly feel his working through you.I’m not saying I’m perfect, I’ve sinned and hurt people verbally, and cheated and lied and accused but I have tried so hard to make up for it and I have but that doesn’t take away what I have done god does, because he loves and he saves and he heals and he knows and he sees and it is he who reigns.God sent Jesus down to die for our sins all throughout his adult life he was accused and threatened and hated and tortured when put on a cross and being nailed and given vinegar to drink instead of water.And he literally took in all of our sins to save us.So am I just someone saying something on the internet could god not be real maybe but I doubt he isn’t and if he is ide rather go through life believing that there’s a loving, caring, wise god protecting me than fear there isn’t.

    “Take some time today to thank God for everything He has made.”
    Thank God? Anyone who worships such a cruel, unmerciful God, who brutally murders countless innocent men, women and children with earthquakes and tsunamis, is a maniac.

    God might be real, but is definitely not great.

      There are a lot of things in this world that we may never understand why they happen. However, taking the time to read the Bible, God’s perfect Word for us, will help you understand that God is truly a loving and wonderful God. He is not a cruel tyrant that intends harm for us. The Bible says that we, the human race, are fearfully and wonderfully made. We are not an after thought and none of us are “mistakes”. God knows exactly how each of us is made and how we think. He created us to have free will to make our own decisions in life, including having faith that He is who He is; or not believing at all. But He wants a relationship with all of us, not just a thought that he exists. He loves us so much that Jesus was sent to the cross to pay a price that we as humans could never pay. His blood being shed was the only way to cover the sins of all mankind throughout eternity. That includes those who will believe and those who will not. Jesus was and is perfect and we are not.

      This earth and all living things are not meant to last forever. This earth will eventually crumble. But death is not the end. I believe with all my heart that there is eternity to face after death and where we spend it is based on whether we accept through faith that Christ Jesus is Lord of All. The Bible says that those who truly seek will find Jesus to be who He says He is. Faith in a living Christ Jesus is the difference between spending eternity in heaven with Him, or eternity in hell with Satan. “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John 3:17

      God did not take the time to create us the way he did just to destroy and/or torment us. I hope that you will take the time to really seek Him and not just choose to continue with the hopeless thought that God is hateful because He is the God of hope. He knows who you are and wants you to find out just how much He loves you.

        This world full of suffering and pain was never Gods intention for human kind. It started out with a perfect world free of sin and death and filled with Joy and gladness. This is a clear indication that God had wonderful plans for the world. But these plans were truncated by sin and the consequences of sin is sorrow. You’d probably wonder why God is making us pay for the sins of Adam and Eve. Does it mean that he doesn’t love us? Not at all. God loves us so much that he looked down on this sinful world and sent His ONLY son Jesus Christ to die for us. So that we have hope of a much better life someday, in Heaven. Where there is no sorrow or pain. I was very hurt to see that you think God is mean and cruel when He is the very opposite. I really hope that your misconception on who God is changes. He’s not Zeus that strikes people down to destroy them. He is pained by the perishing of his people and the bible tells us that. This is why he gives us the greatest consolation, heaven. This is our hope and consolation as Christians.

      HOW DARE YOU!!! God is NOT dead. Sin is what causes those stuff, not God. God wants us to make our own desisions. You were created by God in your mothers womb. You are loved by God so so much! He wants you to come to him and repent for your sins. We are very sinfull. Ever since Eve took the serpents advise, this world had been cursed. But when God comes again he will judge the living and the dead. The people in heaven will be celebrating and the people in hell will rot in sin forever and ever. BTW watch your language.

      Well maybe bad things do happen but God will always be there for us.
      God also gives us the good things I mean think of anything that pleases you I’m sure you can think of a lot God made all of those things
      God always has reasons for what he does, we may not know them yet but everything that God does is for a good reason
      I had a grandpa who I didn’t know very well, he died in November. If he hadn’t passed away then I never would’ve known him as much as i do now like i had no idea that he loved basketball as much as me or that he had wavy hair just like me. He was also in a lot of pain so I would rather him be in heaven rather than here in pain

    I have a teenager who wants to know what is the point if God knows what we do before we do it , then what’s the point. Why pray for our dad to get saved when god knows that regardless of our prayer he won’t till he’s 70 or neverbatvall. Why pray for things when God knows the future that it may not happens already

    I think that God has a plan for us, but God does not see the future. It may simply be that God wants the best for us. Our lives are still our own and our decisions today will still effect us. What God see’s is our potential to live the best we can and be as blessed as we can be. Your dad may only live until 70 but what is important is how good of a life he had up until then. Our job is to love God and try to follow his path. Jesus knew that the religious leaders were angry at him and he knew that one day they would capture him. But it never stopped him from telling the Good News, it never defeated him.

      God does see the future. He knows the out come of all things. Remember he is the Created . It’s not how good we are , good works will not get anyone into Heaven only by the Grace of God and the confession of sin and asking Jesus to come into our hearts. God wants everyone to love him, have a relationship with him, but God doesn’t force himself on anyone he wants us to choose him out of love. I pray this father will receive Christ as his savior, but it’s up to him to ask Christ into his heart. Salvation is for the taking of your willing to ask. God Bless.
