God-Part I
He Exists!

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, "Let there be light;" and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day. Genesis 1:1-5 (NKJV)


You will encounter many people in your life that, for an assortment of reasons, will deny the existence of God.  They may say that they believe in evolution, or that they simply just don't believe.  Some will do this because they don't want to be held accountable for how they live, and others because people have hurt them in the name of God through various religious practices or hypocrisy.  

Well, with that said, I wanted to write a series of devotionals that would share some of what we all, as Christian men and women, should know about our Great and Almighty God.  It is our knowledge of God and the depth of His love for us that will ultimately lead us to surrender our life to Him and to live righteously.  And surrendering our life to Him is the greatest testimony that we can ultimately share with others.  Over the next series of Daily Devotionals we will be looking at:

1.    Gods Existence
2.    Gods Divine Attributes
3.    Gods Divine Character
4.    Gods Nature (Trinity)

Before we get started looking at the scriptures that point to the truth that every created human being knows of God, I am going to just say this to those who may read this, "If you sincerely want to find God in your life, then you will."

And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the LORD, Jeremiah 29:13-14 (NKJV)

To start off with, I wanted to share a few things about God's creations that speak loudly of His existence and his absolute perfection, verses believing that we simply have evolved from some microorganism slim to writing devotionals on a Mac computer.  There are billions of pieces of proof showing God's existence through His divine creations so I will just take 5 of them to share.

1.    The Earth

The Earths size is perfect. The Earth's size and corresponding gravity holds a thin layer of mostly nitrogen and oxygen gases, only extending about 50 miles above the Earth's surface. If Earth were smaller, an atmosphere would be impossible, like the planet Mercury.  If Earth were larger, its atmosphere would contain free hydrogen, like Jupiter. (#1)

The Earth is the only known planet equipped with an atmosphere of the right mixture of gases to sustain plant, animal and human life. The Earth is located the right distance from the sun. Consider the temperature swings we encounter, roughly -30 degrees to +120 degrees.  If the Earth were any further away from the sun, we would all freeze.  Any closer and we would burn up. Even a fractional variance in the Earth's position to the sun would make life on Earth impossible. The Earth remains this perfect distance from the sun while it rotates around the sun at a speed of nearly 67,000 mph. It is also rotating on its axis, allowing the entire surface of the Earth to be properly warmed and cooled every day. (#2)

2.    The Moon

Our moon is the perfect size and distance from the Earth for its gravitational pull. The moon creates important ocean tides and movement so ocean waters do not stagnate, and yet it restrains our massive oceans from spilling over across the continents. (#2)

3.    Water

Water is colorless, odorless and without taste, and yet no living thing can survive without it. Plants, animals and human beings consist mostly of water (about two-thirds of the human body is water). You'll see why the characteristics of water are uniquely suited to life: It has an unusually high boiling point and freezing point. Water allows us to live in an environment of fluctuating temperature changes, while keeping our bodies a steady 98.6 degrees. Water is a universal solvent. This property of water means that thousands of chemicals, minerals and nutrients can be carried throughout our bodies and into the smallest blood vessels.

Water is also chemically inert, which means that without affecting the makeup of the substances it carries, water enables food, medicines and minerals to be absorbed and used by the body.  Water has a unique surface tension. Water in plants can therefore flow upward against gravity, bringing life-giving water and nutrients to the top of even the tallest trees. Water freezes from the top down and floats, so fish can live in the winter.

Ninety-seven percent of the Earth's water is in the oceans, but on our Earth, there is a system designed which removes salt from the water and then distributes that water throughout the globe. Evaporation takes the ocean waters, leaving the salt, and forms clouds, which are easily moved by the wind to disperse water over the land, for vegetation, animals and people. It is a system of purification and supply that sustains life on this planet, a system of recycled and reused water. (#2)

In Part II of this devotional series, we will continue to look at 2-more examples of God's creations that speak forth an abundant proof of His existence.

STUDY QUESTION: What does God's Word say about our ability to find God if we earnestly seek Him according to Jeremiah 29:13-14?

PERSONAL INVENTORY: Have you ever found yourself pondering thoughts and wondering about God's existence?

APPLICATION: Look around at all of God's creations to see the unique attributes and abilities to really understand the exacting nature of every detail that was put into them.

Father, Thank You for showing me these things and how they all work together in such an exacting way and with such great purpose.  Thank You for allowing me to enjoy these things and to know that You have created me with that same exactness and purpose in mind.  In Jesus precious name, amen...

Be Blessed, Pastor Scott
