I’m often asked for proof that God exists .

It’s sort of a weird question in my mind, because it’s impossible to conceive of Him not existing.

Kind of like, “Can you prove that there is really a sun?”

I really, really enjoy talking about God, in all three of His forms, Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

Have you noticed?

I mean, He is so real to me, I feel a certain excitement when I recount ways He has affected my life, when I hear of His hands working in the lives of my friends.

It is really fun to see the light of understanding in the face of someone who has tasted His life and knows exactly what I am talking about.

I love telling about the first day that I came to know Him. It was such a miraculous turn of events, of answered prayers, of a changed heart, that I think everyone would hear the story, and believe.

But it doesn’t work that way, does it?

Atheists, Agnostics, and those that just aren’t ready to see Him…I can see them losing interest.

They act like they are interested at the beginning, but they start looking away, at the tv, the computer screen, the phone.

It’s almost as if there is a curtain that is blocking them from seeing the Light.

It’s almost like, they cannot even hear that God is speaking to their heart.

“Come to me, and I will give you rest.”

“Turn away from your godless ways, and let me give you real life.”

“Unless I give you Life, you cannot see me, or hear me, or see my world.”

“I really, really love you with an everlasting love. A love so deep that, if you accept it, I will never leave you alone.”

“I love you so much, that I gave my only Son, to pay for your rebellion, and to give you access to my world.”

“Come to me…and Live…forever!”

I wonder why they can’t hear that?

“In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”

2 Corinthians 4:4 ESV

Oh, yeah.

We don’t fight against flesh and blood, but against spiritual rulers in high places who have put chains and blinders on their prisoners, so they won’t see the One who comes to set them free.
