Did you know that it is human nature to believe in God? According to a recent Pew study, 90% of Americans believe in God. However, I’m prepared to guess that everyone in the jungles of Africa, for example, believes in Him. Children, too, believe in Him until they’re taught otherwise. This is because our natural state is one of belief; it is hardwired into us to look around in amazement and recognize that there must be a Creator of all the beauty we experience with our senses. The world is full of the Lord’s glory; I believe we see it all around us all of the time, and science is continuously discovering new aspects of creation’s wonder. Albert Einstein’s discovery that all matter is energy was one of the most important discoveries of the twentieth century. According to another scientist, all matter is frozen light. So if you imagine the tiniest atom and pretend that you’re holding it in your hand, even though you can’t see it or feel it, you can split it open and see tons of power flowing from it. Even though it’s only one little molecule, it’s packed with life and energy.
Friend, I believe you have an intrinsic desire to learn about God’s kindness! You were created to live in an ever-deepening connection with the One who made you, just as Jesus stated, “Knock and the door will be opened, seek and you will find…” He freely reveals Himself to those who do not have a stony heart. Please, don’t let your desire for sinful things suffocate and silence the voice of Jesus. He is eager to communicate with you, both via His creation and by the power of His Holy Spirit at work in your heart. You are His child, and He delights in getting to know you and introducing Himself to you! Isn’t it wonderful news?
