God is all around us, but the proof isn’t exactly scientific. God lives in our personal relationship with Him. We can strengthen our relationship with Him through faith and experience.
If you’re looking for evidence of God, here are a couple of things to consider.
The trillions of sequential events required for us to exist on earth may seem coincidental to some people, but our planet makes a good case for God. When we are out in nature, we often get the feeling that we—and all the things around us—are not random. The Book of Mormon says it this way: “All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator” (Alma 30:44).
God speaks to His children. The Bible and the Book of Mormon are both written records of some of the experiences that people have had with God. As you read the Bible and the Book of Mormon, you can understand who God is, and you can discover His love for us.
When you read the scriptures, experiment with the lessons you learn by asking God if these lessons are true. The feelings you get will strengthen your relationship with God.
As you come to know that God exists, your life will begin to change. You will begin a journey of discovery and love.
Anyone can learn that God cares about us. It only requires enough faith to try an experiment.
Even if you are not familiar with the Bible or the Book of Mormon, you can come to know God if you read the scriptures with a sincere desire to discover truth. The Book of Mormon explains how God interacts with us, His children.
As you read the scriptures, take time to really think. Try to have an open mind as you read, and consider what the words mean to you on a personal level.
Ask God in prayer if He is there for you. He will listen, He will answer your questions, and He will help you recognize truth. These answers will come in His own way and in His own time. You can know when God is speaking to you through the warm, peaceful feelings of the Holy Spirit.
Try to live the lessons you learn from reading the Book of Mormon. As you do so, you will discover through personal experience that God sent Jesus to teach us a better way to live.
