We can’t see Him. Seeing is often believing so how are we supposed to trust that He exists?
Just believe? A feeling? After leaving the church 85% of people who leave will leave God all altogether. How are we supposed to believe in a God we can not see?
Is there evidence of God? Today, we are looking at three Bible passages that might just hold the answer.

Is there Proof of God?
In today’s world, it is so much easier to just deny God. We admire, revere, and praise those of this world that we can SEE. And after leaving the church we often vow to never believe in something again without evidence. We will never blindly believe a lie again, right?
And so we ask, how do we know to trust in His existence if we can’t see Him? What proof do we have?
How do YOU know God Exists?
And with that, we have to go to the one thing we can trust, The Bible.
It always comes down to the Bible.
Here, we learn one super cool, amazing thing-
God is all around.
How do we know this?
First, let’s look at Job.
You see God is all around us. Evidence of Him is everywhere, in all living things.
We humans can create a chair, paint a painting, build a building, but can we make them live? Can we speak and have something come into existence? No. But the creatures of this world sing of His existence.
Job is a story of perseverance, motives, and trusting the Lord. I do invite you to read it and then read it again. It may take a few times to understand, but in it is a lot of back and forth between people and God.
And it is in this back and forth that we read about the nature of God, or more so, God in Nature.
In His hand is the life of every living thing! Every bit around us is evidence of His creation.
All Creation Calls out to Him
This brings us to the second verse where the bible tells us it is not just in living things but in all creation, heavens, and earth that God is seen. He created it all.
He is the God of ALL creation. Think about how incredible this world is! It is truly a miracle. Truly. He made it and His hand is seen in ALL of it.
God is in Plain Site
Perhaps the verse with the most straightforward approach to the evidence of God is in Romans.
Here, Paul says it frankly. God, His power, who He is is all around us, and denying it all around us is not seeing Him.
Seeing is Believing
Let’s go back to what we talked about at the beginning of this episode- the question- Can we believe in something we can not see? It is an argument that many who leave the church and leave God use.
But according to these passages are we in fact being asked to do that? Or are we being asked to believe in a God that shows Himself and His magnitude everywhere in all the creation around us?
Maybe the better question is are we seeing the God we believe in?
Because God is truly all around us.
Are we are struggling with believing in God because we can’t see Him? But we can see Him. We see Him in all creation from the animals to stars. As the Bible tells us, He is in everything.
The Psalms are always beautiful. Here is a video from the Bible Project you will love.
