Psalm 14:1 “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.”
The Bible says if we say there is no God, then we are fools. This verse further describes these fools. They are corrupt; their deeds are vile. They don’t do good.
That says a lot and all of it is bad.
Why would people say there is no God?
As we look up into the night sky, we see stars that are hung in space. They reside in beautiful harmony throughout the universe. How could it have just happened?
How could the earth have materialized from nothing and be the exact right distance from the sun?
How could green plants that use the sun to make food, not only for themselves but also for all other life, have just begun to grow by mere chance?
How could the right gravitational pull for life be an accident?
How could the perfect amount of water, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen just have shown up in the right percentages to support all life?
Those things couldn’t have just happened. There had to have been a Creator. It is too perfectly synchronized for it to be random. There had to be a God who spoke it all into existence from the tiniest one celled animal to the largest and farthest galaxy in the universe.
It was like this: In the beginning God…
There is so much evidence all around us that proves we have a Creator.
But creation is just the beginning of the proof of God. The Bible is the most amazing book ever written. It’s unlike anything else. Words written hundreds of years earlier were prophecies that came true and are coming true as if they are today’s news. No other book is like it and only God who knew what was to come could have been the author.
The Bible itself is proof of God.
And these are just a couple of ways we can know that God exists. There are so many more.
Yet a fool says that there is no God.
It is the most foolish thing anyone can say.
Heavenly Father, I see Your creation. The work of Your hands shows me that You are real. I read Your Word and I see the intricacies of Your promises and prophecies and I know it had to have been authored by You. Thank You that I know that You are there.
