If you ask some people today, they will tell you that God isn’t real, but rather something mankind created to either 1) Control people or 2) Make themselves feel better in light of all the difficult things life throws our way. The Christian God is relegated alongside myths, fairy tales, and people too unintelligent to comprehend reality. It’s amazing that the atheist will relegate a believer to the realm of fools in light of Psalm 14:1 which states, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’.”

This only proves that things are upside down in our world. That’s why Jesus commanded us to pray “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Hebrews 2:8 says, “You have put all things in subjection under His feet … but now we see not all things put under Him.”

Now I know this already. And because of all the amazing things God has done in my life over the years, I don’t doubt his existence. Every once in a blue moon the enemy will put an untrue thought about the existence of God in my head, but it usually doesn’t last too long. What I find happens more often is that I ask this question: “God, I know You’re there. And I know You don’t need to do anything else to prove to me that You’re there. But could you just throw me a reminder?”

I have found that God often gives these little reminder’s to me through His Word. One of them came today. I was reading my devotion and it really didn’t seem to apply. Oh there was a situation it applied to in my life. It just didn’t seem that important – kind of a left field application. Something I would need down the road, but not in the near future. Regardless, I committed some things to God and thought nothing of it afterwards.

Well, low and behold, my wife came home from picking up one of the kids at school and mentioned something to me. Something totally unexpected and exactly what my devotion was about this morning. At first, I was kind of stunned, but then the Lord nudged me. “Just a reminder that I’m here.” It was quite humbling to say the least.

I’m so thankful my God isn’t a fairy tale. I’m so thankful my God is real and loves me even though He doesn’t have to give me reminders of His nearness. Have you thanked God for creating you and being there for you lately? Take some time to do so today!
