Why Won’t God Prove He Exists?

When you ask, “Why doesn’t God prove He exists?”, what you’re really asking is why doesn’t God prove His existence again — and this time, to you personally.

But what if He did?  What if God revealed Himself to you in a way that you could no longer deny His existence?  What’s next?  Well, you’d want to share what you knew, right?  But how would that work out?  A lot of your friends are like-minded.  They don’t believe in God and if you just walked up to them and told them that you had a true one to one experience that left you with no doubt that God truly existed, how do you think they would react?  They’d want proof, proof that you wouldn’t be able to give them.  The only thing you would have to offer them is your word that what happened to you was real. 

Where would that leave you?  In the same place every other Christian finds themselves; in a personal relationship with the living God and the challenge of sharing who He is with people who don’t  believe in His existence. 

Every true Christian has a common experience; that moment when we reach out in faith to a God we can no longer deny exists.  At that moment, we are spiritually born again and we begin a new life in Jesus Christ. 

You can’t prove it, you can’t even adequately explain the change that miraculously happens at that moment, but you know that the experience is true.  Others may mock us and say all manner of evil against us, but we remain steadfast in our belief because we KNOW that what we’ve experienced is real. 

Do we hate those who mock us, make fun of us, abuse us, degrade us, assault us?  No.  Instead we pray that God will give them that little ounce of faith needed to believe; that He will soften their hearts and open their eyes to the truth that can set them free. 

We are saddened for those who may never allow God to touch their heart, knowing that the only alternative to eternity in heaven is an eternity in hell.  So we persist; we persevere; we make ourselves available to plant and water the seeds of faith and then hope to be there for the reaping.

May all praise and glory be to the living God!!!
