I am spending a few days this week in the mountains taking in God’s amazing creation. Our universe and everything in it has order and design. Its complexity and beauty suggest an intelligent creator behind it. God intended for the beauty of the universe to point to Him (Psalms 19:1).

In Romans 1:20, the apostle Paul tells us that God has made Himself known to us through nature and an inner, instinctive recognition of God. “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”

In nature, we find evidence that He exists, but He really must be accepted by faith. “Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

If a person does not want to believe in God, he can find a million reasons not to believe. Yet, when you think about it, it really takes more faith not to believe in God than it does to believe in Him.
