Why is it easy for so many people of the world to believe in ghosts, witches, magic, voodoo, the paranormal; so many things they cannot see or comprehend; yet when you mention God they say there is no God, no greater being who created us. Why are people ready to believe in aliens but when you mention angels they refuse to believe they exist. Why do so many people believe that there is a heaven and there are angels only when a loved one dies but not at any other time in their lives. At funerals you will often hear “they are in heaven now,” or “they are with the angels;” where does this sudden belief emerge from? Why hope when there is nothing you can do to change the situation. Why not hope when you are able to effect change? Even so they are still dismissive of God. I can understand not wanting to believe there is a devil or hell because most people don’t want to meet him or end up there, but what reason does the world have for not wanting to believe in God?
Do they refuse to believe because it is not what they want to hear, because it doesn’t fit in with their belief system; because it is just too much to take some time out of their busy lives to give it some real thought? Why? No one can say what the wind looks like, only the direction in which it came from or where it is heading. No one can touch the stars in heaven and the sun is a different matter altogether! So if we have such greatness in our world surely it stands to reason that only someone greater could have created them. Surely it would have taken more thought, love,passion and creativity to create them than a ‘big bang!’
Whatever the reason, life has to have a purpose. Do not accept that the beautiful being that is ‘you’ were created to live a limited, average and often miserable existence only to die and vanish into nothingness. If you are yearning for something, feeling as if there is a void that cannot be filled, looking for unnatural levels of ‘high;’ trying to find some meaning to your life, why not focus those yearnings and feelings into a real desire to find out who you really are, who God created you to be. Why not start asking the right questions and address them to the only person who can answer them. I have total confidence that if you seek answers you will find them. I don’t mean ask once or twice then give up I mean really seek with single minded determination not to stop until you get an answer. The way we are when we spend a life-time seeking the right partner and never giving up until we find that special person. The countless dates, relationship after relationship, taking a break then getting out there again. That is the type of determination I am talking about. The determination of those who want to be the best at what they do, training from a young age, leading a discipline life of diet and training in their art to be number one in the world. If it is that important to you, you will find the determination to succeed in this single most important quest in your life.
Here is where it begins for you, if you can’t think of what to say, start with some simple questions such as:
God, if you are real please show me who You are
Jesus, who are You, are you really the Son of God?
God do you love me as much as they say?
Lord who are you?
God, do you really exist?
Did you create me, what was I created for?
Keep it simple. “God how do I find you?” Start searching for answers and you will find them. I know some extremely intelligent, creative people who clam up immediately the moment I mention just the possibility of a greater power who created us. People who are used to ‘thinking outside the box’ refuse to give it a thought. A great mind has to be open to possibilities especially of what they cannot understand. Many learned experts will spend much of their lives trying to re-create the miracles that Jesus did, or trying to prove that God does not exist even though they already don’t believe there is a God. Why would you spend your life trying to disprove something that you don’t believe in anyway?
There is a much simpler way of finding out if God exists, why not just ASK HIM! It would save so much money, effort and time! It costs you nothing.
Seek God – Poem
I came upon a bird, more beautiful and perfect than ever I’d seen,
Who tried to fl y away to pastures green
He fought and struggled and wore himself down,
And wondered why he couldn’t get off the ground.
He gazed at the other birds, and praised them for their beauty and grace
Then completely excluded himself from the race.
His mind confused he sought to hide,
While searching for answers far and wide.
I came upon him again one day
And felt his pain as he walked my way.
“Little bird” I said, “why walk when you have wings?” “Birds were made to fl y and sing,
It is a most unnatural thing you do.
This is not the life for you.”
I sat him down and asked him to sing.
He spoke and said, “I seem to fail at everything. I cannot fly, no matter how hard I try.”
“Little bird,” I said, “you are a clever thing,
But even you cannot fly with a broken wing.
You must seek and you will find
The answers await you, in front, not behind.
So fly little bird fly.”
He continued to look downhearted,
“My heart is so heavy,” he said, “I don’t know what to do.”
“To love someone else,” I replied, “you must first love you,
Little bird with the broken wing, Divine loves come from within.
Love God first, and all things will be revealed,
Then slowly, but surely your wing will be healed.”
Fly little bird fly!
