God doesn’t force us to believe in Him. Choosing not to believe in God is an option, but it’s a mistake. God gets rejected by people over and over again, every day. People say He doesn’t exist. They say He doesn’t care. People demand that God prove Himself to them. People use His name to curse.
Human intelligence and scientific facts and theories are placed above spiritual knowledge about God. When I first started reading the Bible, I approached it as an academic learning experience. I started in the book of John. I read chapters, highlighted verses, and wrote notes. But something was happening while I was reading. Beyond learning just what the words said, I started to feel the presence of God.
The more I read the Bible, the stronger I felt. God gave me His strength. I wasn’t alone anymore, God was with me.
Start to read the Bible and God will show Himself to you. It will happen, you will gain spiritual knowledge. It will feel different than studying. The truth about God will become clear to you. You will know He does exist, He is the One True God, and you will know that’s true once you start to experience His presence.
