Can We Prove That God Exists?
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."1
A young lady from overseas wrote, "I have been asked the following question by one of my non-believing friends: 'How can you prove if God is real?' he asked. I didn't know how to explain because it's just something I feel in my soul and heart. Can you please help me?'"
I shared with her some helpful articles from our website but also suggested that she might like to ask her friend how he could prove that God doesn't exist?
For a simple but excellent answer allow me to quote the following poem:
There was a little boy,
On the week's first day,
Coming home from Sunday School
And wandering on the way.
He scuffed his shoes into the grass
And found a caterpillar.
He found a fluffy milkweed pod
And blew out all the filler.
A bird's nest in a tree above,
So wisely placed on high,
Was just another wonder
That caught his eager eye.
A neighbor watched his crooked course
And hailed him from the lawn.
He asked him where he'd been that day
And what was going on.
"I've been to Sunday School," he said
As he turned a piece of sod,
And picking up a worm, he smiled,
"I've learned a lot from God!"
"That's a fine way," the neighbor said,
"For a boy to spend his time.
Now if you can tell me where God is,
I'll give you a brand new dime."
Quick as a flash the answer came,
The boy said without complaint,
"I'll give you a dollar, Mister,
If you can tell me where God ain't!"

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me to so live and love that people will see Jesus in me and in so seeing, will want Him for themselves. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."
1. Psalm 19:1 (NIV).
