How do we know God?
« on: December 06, 2018, 01:16:16 pm »

It is always more rational to believe in God than to believe there is no God. In fact, belief in God is much more rational than atheism. But the atheist’s denial of God is an emotional reaction, not a logical one. Faith in God is not a possession, or an experience. It is actually a decision you make. It’s based on reasons, facts, and desire, just like most of life’s decisions. The Bible doesn’t set out to prove God exists, but instead begins with the knowledge everyone everywhere already possesses that God does exist and everyone knows it. Genesis 1:1 says, ‘In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.’ The primary way in which everyone knows God, is through His creation. Its presence in the world is a proof of the existence of God. Psalm 19 is one of the well-known psalms in the Bible.
This extraordinary psalm of King David, written 3,000 years ago, demonstrates not only what a profound thinker, theologian, and poet he was, but how he adored the Lord and his word. His view of God is expressed by majestic and inspiring poetry. It challenges our intellect and our affections.
In this psalm, David pays attention to what creation says about the glory of God, what scriptures teach us about the righteousness of God, and how we ought to respond to revelations of God. Psalm 19:1 says,‘ The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of his hands.’ David opens his psalm by observing the ‘speech of creation’ to glorify God: It is no secret. God put his works on permanent display. The revelation of God’s glory has been written in two volumes. There is, first, The Book of Natural Creation which unveils the splendour of God in space and stars and the skies above. Second, there is the volume of the Holy Scripture. David is telling us that the world around and above us is the media by which God is speaking to mankind and speaking very forcefully. He is not whispering or hinting to people on this planet that he is glorious. God’s media declare and proclaim this message intelligibly, ‘God’s own hands made this world and he is glorious.’
When we talk of ‘media’, we generally refer to TV and radio, newspapers and magazines, films, Internet and so on. Media means the ways and means by which a message with certain content comes to us. All politicians use all the media they can at this moment to reach us with their messages. So David is telling us that God uses means to communicate with the people who live on this planet. God speaks through his creation; it has been made with such skill and beauty that it has one clear and consistent message.
It is the divine media by which his word gets through to the human race. It is a declaration of himself via nature; it is natural revelation. It is available to everyone and it is saying, ‘God is glorious and God’s hands made this world,’ and it is saying this constantly and clearly. Just think of that; that no one is ignorant of God. Simply by opening your eyes and ears and seeing creation, you are looking at the divinely created and sustained media, which is bringing the message that God is powerful and glorious.
The psalmist wants us to look up and see all the wondrous things God has created. The sky is preaching the glory of God every day. Creation doesn’t exist to proclaim creation’s praise but that of its Creator. The universe is wondrous indeed, but only because it is the ‘work of his hands’.
