Seeing an Invisible God

Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Many people ask the question, “How do you know that God exists?”  This is a good question.  We live in a physical world, but God is a spiritual Being (John 4:24).  By definition, He cannot be perceived with our physical senses.  However, the physical world around us is irrefutable evidence that God exists.

The verse above reveals that the invisible things of God are revealed in His physical creation.  As Psalm 19:1 states,”The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”  We live in a highly complex universe from the largest of galaxies to the smallest of particles.  God’s handiwork is obvious because complexity does not come from chaos.  There must be intelligence bringing about the order.

Evolution cannot explain the complexities of life.  There are features of living organisms which have irreducible complexity, meaning that the systems cannot be explained by gradual changes.  Some of these features include eyes, circulatory systems, and reproductive systems.  Only an all-knowing, all-powerful God can explain the formation of these features.

When we look at the creation around us and take in its enormous complexity, we must believe in God, because, as the verse above states, “we are without excuse”.
