Every now and then I come to a time that I review why I believe in God. I read the creation story in Genesis 1&2 and enjoyed the thought-provoking contemplation that it brings. Can such an awesome being exist? Is there really an entity that can speak the entire universe into being? Then I travel through my memories reviewing why I believe this to be true.
I start with remembering when I was at my lowest point, and I called out to God. Somewhere in my inner being, I knew He was there. He answered me, and my life changed dramatically from that moment. I have walked a blessed life ever since that day. He has spoken to me in the most intimate ways on a number of occasions. God has directed my life in ways I didn’t understand at the time, but His ways have always brought blessing. When hard times came, my Lord was always there to guide me through. We have a long term relationship that is ever growing.
So as hard as it is to imagine a being who could speak the entire universe into existence, I have a personal relationship with Him. I communicate with Him on a daily basis. He speaks to me. God loves me, and I love Him. I see His beauty in all that He created. I say yes! There is a being who spoke the entire universe into existence. I believe because I have experienced Him.
