The Bible reveals to us truths about God that we aren’t going to find anywhere else. Among those truths is that He is the Creator.
In fact, that’s the first thing the Bible tells us about God, that He created “the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1).
One of the many fascinating things about this text is that the Bible simply assumes the existence of God without trying to prove or show it. The Bible spends a great deal of time teaching us about what God is like, particularly as His character is revealed through His interaction with fallen humanity. But it spends no time trying to prove that He exists. It just assumes His existence.
Conviction about the existence of God cannot come from rational arguments alone. The Bible teaches that a person is convinced of God’s existence through personal experience with Him as the Holy Spirit impresses one’s heart and mind with the fact of His existence. In many cases, people may come to believe in God first; only after, then, do they start to build a logical and intellectual foundation for faith in a God whom they cannot see.
Dwell on the attributes of God as expressed in the Scriptures. How many of them could you know from other sources; that is, from nature or from personal experience? What does your answer teach you about how crucial the Scriptures are to our understanding of what God is truly like?
