Over the centuries people, men and women, have tried various ways to figure out if there is, indeed, a God . . . a Supreme Being . . . a Creator. They have studied atoms, cells, and recently even DNA; solar system, ocean life, animal life; all to try and prove something.
I say, “Just believe!”
I know enough about anatomy and physiology to know that cells can ONLY produce after their own kind. It simply can NOT be ‘figured’ out!
We know that night follows day; day follows night; rain brings refreshing and helps produce a new greenness to our world. Flowers pop up to sing their Creator’s praise! Animals know when to store up for winter, when to fly south, when to swim against the flow to spawn. It simply can NOT be ‘figured’ out!
Every creature is provided for by means of plant life or other creatures as their prey. How do they KNOW? Every creature, animal and human alike, come into this world – start breathing, have a heart beating and blood flowing. How do they KNOW how to do these things? Even the animals, many of them stand up shortly after birth and start to nurse. How do they KNOW? It simply can NOT be ‘figured’ out!
We can knock ourselves out, make ourselves complete basket cases, trying to ‘logically’, ‘mathematically’, ‘scientifically’ figure out the how and why things happen . . . but . . . they simply can NOT be ‘figured’ out!
I say, “Simply believe!”
Jesus says, “Unless they become as little children…” (Matthew 18:3) and by that we can understand that we need to be completely trusting of our Heavenly Father – BELIEVING that what He says IS true and simply accept His love in our lives! [okay, I know that sounds too simple, but it is! He said it, I believe it, that settles it!]
The Bible says (and the Bible IS the infallible Word of God, which later became ‘flesh’ – Jesus) … “in the beginning God created” … “in the beginning was the Word” … “God spoke and it was” …
Some things we just have to take by faith … and faith, believes without seeing (or understanding). When we get on a plane, we believe it will carry us up in the air across much distance to our destination. We may not understand aerodynamics one iota, but we believe it will do what it is purposed to do. Why is it so simple for us to believe in the things that humans have created, such as cars, planes, trains, boats and yet we have difficulty trusting the One who created us? If we are created in His image, with the knowledge He has given us to create ‘things’ in which we can believe in and trust . . . to me it seems a very simple thing . . . just believe!
“I believe in God the Father, Maker of Heaven and Earth!” Do I understand it? Perhaps not, but I trust and believe.
I believe He IS Who He says He is! Do I understand it? Perhaps not, but I trust and believe.
I believe that Jesus came, lived, died, rose again AND is coming back for those who believe upon Him and trust in His finished work at Calvary. Do I understand it? Perhaps not, but I trust and believe.
Again, I say, “Just believe!”
Jesus said, “believe in God, and believe also in Me” John 14:1 and, “believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me” John 14:11
It is a matter of faith . . . simple, pure, like a child . . . ah, just believe!
