There is evidence God gives for His existence that’s impossible to refute. So much so that the Bible tells us we are “without excuse” if we don’t acknowledge His existence.

The evidence? Creation itself: “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” (Rom. 1:20).

This verse doesn’t just declare we have a Creator, it emphasizes we have a God for whom there is no equal. Note especially the following words: “even His eternal power and Godhead.”

One cannot look at creation and say, “There is a God” and then carve an image, declaring, “Here he is. I made him.” Instead, as we look at creation, we have to say in wonder and amazement, “There is a God. He made me.”

Consider the billions of stars in our expansive universe or the positioning of the sun and moon in our galaxy giving light by day and by night. Think about the glory of the recent solar eclipse on August 21st—the first total solar eclipse visible in the US in 38 years. To delve even more personal, take a hike in the woods and focus on a simple tree. Look at the curvature of the bark, the root system of a majestic oak, or the leaves changing color. Now focus on the wildlife that roams among the trees. Then observe the birds flocking above you, too numerous to count and beyond your ability to catch.

Creation-wise, we have not even addressed one percent of what exists. Creation =boasts the canyons, the rocks, the seas, and the ocean. Even our human body astounds doctors in the way the cells, nerves, ligaments, and bones all function and support one another. All of this requires great, detailed design and complexity, not simple happenstance or coincidence. Creation had to be put together by a higher power, not thrown together.

Creation does not whisper, “There is a God.” Creation shouts, “God exists! God is real!”
