God is in the Small Stuff

DAY 1 OF 7

Understand the Nature of God

You definitely believe in God, but you don’t know Him. You don’t understand His nature—in other words, His personality. You aren’t alone. For many people—even those who claim to be religious—the nature of God is a mystery. It’s like God is behind some dark cloud, occasionally speaking in a deep voice to prophets and such (you know, like He spoke to Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments). Other people think God wants to prevent them from having a good time. If they get close to God, they’re afraid they’ll have to give up their freedom. 

While it’s true there are things about God we’ll never know (after all, He is God), there are many things we can know. For example, when we look at our universe—whether it’s through a microscope, a telescope, or the naked eye—we observe incredible design and order and beauty. That means the Designer (that would be God) must be a being of design and order and beauty. And He must be pretty powerful. 

When we look at ourselves and see that we all have some idea about God (even when you deny God exists, you have to think about Him), that means the Creator (God again) put that idea in us. Yet God is more than an idea. He is more than a symbol for good or an impersonal “higher being.” God is a very real spirit Being who has always existed in the past, who exists now, and will always exist in the future. God is personal. God is involved in our world. And God has revealed His nature to us. All we have to do is stop, look, and listen.
