God Is Real

Written By Minister Donnie Allison

At the age of 17, I was married with one child we both went to church and were active in the church. During this time many people told me that I had a calling on my life from God, I struggled with this wondering am I good enough and why me. part of me knew that God is real but part of me wasn’t sure. One day while I was studying God’s word I read (Romans 1:19-20) “ They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them.  Forever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God..” and as I read this, I looked out my window and saw the green grass, trees, and birds and it all became crystal clear, I had to ask God to forgive me for my doubt and thank Him for who He is and His awesome creation. God’s word also tells me that one day we all will stand defenseless before the Lord because God speaks to everyone through His handiworks. Even people living outside the will of God and divine plan. (Psalm 19:1-4) “The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship.  Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world.” I encourage everyone to take the time to look at what God has created. The main thing God says to us through nature is that He is real period! It is an important revelation because the Bible says that before we can get anywhere with God, we must first believe that He is real, without faith it is impossible to please and be acceptable to Him.  “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6) God has given every person a measure of faith to believe in Him. The very first words of the Bible is our first lesson of faith, “In the Beginning God”… Many people acknowledge that God exists, but they have not learned to relate to Him on a day-to-day level when they struggle or difficulties of life happens, they tend to look for solutions instead of looking to God. It is by grace, God tries to reach us every day, and He places reminders of Himself everywhere. He leaves clues of Himself all around us, clues that scream out clearly, “I AM HERE. we don’t have to live in fear, we don’t have to worry, because we know that God is here for us. In (Matthew 6:28) Jesus said to consider the lilies of the field and the ravens of the air, (Luke 12:24) meditating on how God adorns the fields and provides for the birds can remind us that He cares even more for us. How could anyone look at God’s creation or even a baby and doubt the existence of God? Take a break today even if just for a minute and look at creation and enjoy His handiwork, He made it for you. 
As for me and my household, We will believe God!
