Why I Believe in God Everyone has different experiences and encounters with God. They are personalized to each individual, like our paths, and choices. Everyone has different experiences and encounters with God. They are personalized to each individual, like our paths, and choices. These experiences can be transformations, miracles, encouragement, or revelation of who Jesus is. People have supernatural encounters of going to heaven, seeing angels, or having a manifestation of the Holy Spirit. Many believers don’t have that personal experience and the results are less blatant. We can see God's role all around us. Science plays a part in the reason I believe in God. “The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion on an intelligent and powerful Being,” said Isaac Newton.” Look at the universe, its complexity, and its order. Nature is another reason to believe in God, and the details of the leaves, or trees, makes one ponder a great creator. Look at the miracle of life. The way our cells, organs, and the way our bodies heal themselves. Look at our DNA, it’s a code designed by a conscience mind and creator, nothing is amiss in this data, it's very specific. “The data at the core of life is not disorganized,” said author Lee Strobel. “It's not simply orderly like salt crystals, but it's complex and specific information that can accomplish a bewildering task--building of biological machines that far outstrip human technological capabilities.” Besides from the physical, finding God through Christ Jesus brings a peace. If you are looking for peace outside of yourself –the Holy Spirit is there. People will disappoint, but God remains. We can go to His word, seek prayer, and find hope in a unstable world. Jesus said “I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Regardless of how you discovered God, everyone is different and takes a different path of experiences.

1 Sarah R = "It should not be a surprise to us that God reaches us differently. After all, every parent knows that you can't treat all of your kids the same because they are not all the same - they have different responses, different strengths and weaknesses, different love languages. God knows each of us intimately because He created each of us uniquely: "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb." (Psalms 139:13). "
2 Sarah R = "Psalms 19:1 "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands."Romans 1;20 "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 people are without excuse.""
