How to Believe in God

There are many in this world who doesn’t believe in existence of God and claim that they are atheist or unbelievers of God. In my point of view I just want to bring in a truth that they are called as atheist or unbelievers because there should be a thing that should exist that is the reason why they have been atheist. Since there is a God there is atheist. So even for the atheist they need to believe God, to claim that there is no God.

People believe in several things and claims whatever they believe or image as God. Some even make animals as God, Some even stones as God. Most people believe in God but they have their faith or belief over something that isn’t God. How to Believe in God who is true?

Having Faith

To believe in God the vital and basic thing which you need to hold on very strongly is to have faith that there is someone who is supernatural than human being.

Our relationship with God is similar to our relationship with others in that all relationships require faith. We can never fully know any other person. We cannot experience all they experience nor enter into their minds to know what their thoughts and emotions are.

If we cannot know our fellow finite human beings fully, how can we expect to fully know an infinite God? Even if He should desire to fully reveal Himself, it is impossible for us to fully know Him. It is like trying to pour the ocean (seemingly infinite in quantity) into a quart-measuring jar (finite)… impossible! Nonetheless, even as we can have meaningful relationships with others that we have grown to trust because of our knowledge of them and of their character, so God has revealed enough about Himself through His creation (Romans 1:18-21), through His written Word, the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17;2 Peter 1:16-21), and through His Son (John 14:9), that we can enter into a meaningful relationship with Him. So faith is what which interlinks or bridges man to God.

Having Hope

God knows the future.  In times of trails your faith and hopes gets shaken but give up your hope and belief in Jesus the Christ who is besides you at the times of struggles. You are not the only one that has felt that there is no hope.  There are several bible heroes had faced hard times when they tried to give up their hope.  Job, Moses, Jonah, Jeremiah, even the powerful prophet in the Old Testament, Elijah.

Humans come up with their own definitions when it comes to Hope which are different from God’s.  However the biblical definition of hope is not a hope-so but a know-so.  Our hope in God is surer than the sun rising in the morning.  Read through these words of God and put yourself or your own name in the place of “I” or “we”. Psalm 119:74 “I have put my hope in your word”, in Psalm 119:81 “… I have put my hope in your word”, and in Psalm 130:5  “… in his word (The Bible) I put my hope”.

Here is real hope.  When a person reads the Word of God (Bible) and believe God they can know for certain that they have a secure and certain future for God will never allow us to suffer beyond our own capabilities to handle it.  There is nothing on this earth more certain than hope in God.  He will never leave us nor will He ever forsake us.  He is our anchor in the present and for the future.

Having Trust

The main reason we should trust God is that He is worthy of our trust. Unlike men, He never lies and never fails to fulfill His promises. “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” (Numbers 23:19; Psalm 89:34). Unlike men, He has the power to bring to pass what He plans and purposes to do.
