Most of us encounter these questions at least once in their life. Who is God? Does God exist? Is He watching me? It may be the most elemental question of human nature. It is the question for our origin, the facilities and our purpose. God is great. It takes only a look out of the window and you will start asking yourself, where did all this greatness come from? Who is the creator of all these wonderful things? Where is He? What are His intentions?
Who is God? God is great
The Old Testament may give an answer to these elemental questions. At the very beginning of the Bible Moses describes how God created heaven and earth, plants and animals and finally humanity. Everything that we believe to know was made by Him. This particularly means that no matter what type of invention we bring to the market, it is always an invention of God. He made us able to do so in the first place.
Explanation: If you build a computer it won’t be able to do something that you didn’t program it for. It will never start talking or walking by itself, because it can only do the things you have programmed it for. There is nearly not one problem that human mind can’t solve. Imagine how great our Creator has to be.
I am that I am – The name of God
HE alone created the variety of human kind and furthermore every kind of intelligence and consciousness. In the book of Exodus 3:14 God said to Moses: “I Am That I Am: and He said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you”. This is actually a wrong translation. According to what God wanted to tell him, the more accurate translation would be “I AM THE I AM”. It is very important to understand what God is implying here. Because this states that He is the Creator of everything that IS (exists).
Explanation: Every time you introduce yourself to someone beginning with “I am ….“ you are in fact stating that you are a part of God’s creation. For He is the I AM.
The name and the title of God show at the same time with how much loving kindness He fabricated the creation He is manifested in.
Who is God? God loves you
God is full of love. If we take a look into the Bible we find several examples for that. In His love and concern He led the Israelites for years through the desert to give them a fertile land. He freed them from slavery in Egypt, and even when they had turned away from Him and started worshiping false gods, He gave them the possibility to find peace in His name. He even sacrificed His son that was filled with His spirit, and let him die on the cross to bear witness for the truth and the love God has for His children. Just so that every one of us today, no matter where he lives or what nationality he has, gets the chance to live side by side with the Lord and experience His infinite love.
But why should we care about that today? Quite simple. There is totally no difference between us and the people who lived 2000 years ago.
We have turned away from the Father
From today’s perspective, these stories seem way too exotic to be true. However, in God’s eyes nothing has changed since that time. But in these days nobody is willing to give up his possessions to follow a God they can’t see. Instead, we are guided by numbers and levels of education.
The majority today believes that miracles are only a result of the lack of knowledge the people had back then. But the reality is that miracles aren’t happening because nobody believes in them and we have distanced ourselves from God. Faith is a prerequisite for miracles.
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. (Matthew 17:20)
We have forgotten God and all the things He has done for us. We live in the world that He has created for us, but we treat our Creator with no respect or gratitude. If we would listen to God and care about Him, we would hear Him saying, “My children, why have you forsaken me? It is my biggest wish to see you happy and to have you by my side. I want to protect you from the dangers that lurk in this world. Why would you choose death over life? Why would you decide to turn your back on your father? Is it more important to you to enjoy your time with malicious things while forsaking the true meaning of life? You have fallen for deceptive lies and wage war upon one another. Please listen to me and follow my advice.“
Surrender your life to God
It’s only the best for us to follow our Father and understand His Word. Because He is the one who has created us. How could He not know what we are in need of? We try to turn our back on Him while He surrounds us always and everywhere. How should our thoughts and calculations surpass the ones of our Father and Creator?
I plead all of you reading this article, to ask yourself if you aren’t missing out on a major criteria for life. Haven’t you been searching for your purpose? May it be that the answer you are searching is right in front of you? All you have to do is to accept God, our Father, with all of your heart and make Him what He is, a major part of your life.
