What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Official Answer

God has provided many evidences of His existence. One of these is the testimony of His creations: “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psalms 19:1). Have you ever looked in awe at the night sky with its billions of stars? Or studied the intricate details of a leaf or flower? Or marveled at the miracle of a tiny new baby? These beautiful and complex creations didn’t come about by chance. They are the creations of God, your Heavenly Father. They can remind you of His existence and of His love for His children. An ancient prophet declared: “All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth... and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator” (Book of Mormon, Alma 30:44).

  • There are many things that tell me that there is a God. Every thing that I see in life is a little added witness of the reality of God. The whole world stands as a testimony of God, the beauty of the flowers make mention of a Divine Artist, the intricacies of the human body point to a Heavenly Engineer. Things such as this to me cannot be mere cosmic accidents but are creations guided by the powerful hand of our loving Father in heaven. Show more

  • There are so many instances when I just stop and marvel at this world. There are so many instances when I stop and marvel at blessings in my life. I know there is a God because I receive all that I stand in need of. I have never had to go without because of God. I have someone to comfort me when I need it. I know there is a God because he led me in my life to find my husband. I espcially learned there was a God when I had our baby girl. Nothing in this life can ever compare to being God-like except for the creation of a child. Show more

  • I identify with Fyodor Dostoevsky, who once wrote: "It is not as a child that I believe and confess Jesus Christ. My hosanna is born of a furnace of doubt." I respect people who find it difficult or impossible to believe, because of the incongruity of so much unjustifiable hurt and pain in the world or because the affirmative evidence for God's existence does not seem compelling. But yet I believe. I believe in a God who is powerful, knowledgeable, loving and good. I see God in the heavens and earth. I see God in the principles of physics, evolution and natural selection, psychology, engineering, mathematics, the arts and the humanities, among others. I see God in the multitude of faith (or nonfaith) traditions throughout the world and among all peoples, giving meaning, purpose and direction to God's children and creations. Yes, there is much inexplicable hurt, pain and injury in the world, and yes, God's respect for our free will and freedom to believe requires that the evidence for God be noncompelling. I do not pretend to know easy answers; I look forward one day to receiving explanations or understanding of those tough questions. In the meantime, I am grateful for the whisperings from God's spirit and for occasional experiences that, to me, seem like "postcards from God", confirming to me God's love and care for me and for all creation. I have never seen God personally, but I have experienced God and I have met God's children and seen God's creations. Show more

  • Look around at the world, escape from the man made creations, and enjoy nature. Then spend some time looking around, look at the details. I see God in the sunsets, I love sunsets, and every evening enjoy just soaking them in, seeing all the color changes. Think about the world, space, planets, look at the images of space, see the beauty and color, and multitude of stars. That to me tells me there is a God, everything in our galaxy fitting so perfectly, how Earth is just the right amount away from the sun to provide enough, but not to much heat for our survival. Psalms 19:1 states "The heavens declare the glory of God...." Look around and you can tell there is a God. I have experimented with this in my life. I know there is a God and that he loves us.

  • The Holy ghost tells me there is a God, and that God's church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and that the bible and the Book of Mormon are true accounts. Show more

  • I know there is a God, because he answers my prayers. No one else knows my thoughts and feelings, my insecurities and worries, my hopes and dreams as well as he does. When I feel confused and alone, he finds a way to tell me that everything will be okay and gives me peace and comfort. He shows his love to me through the counsel of a friend, the beauty of the roses I pass on my way to school, the words of a poem or the happy coincides I encounter as I drive to work. Those little blessing help me know someone loves me and is watching out for me. Show more

  • For me, nature is one of the strongest evidences that there is a God. It is hard for me to believe that the mountains, oceans, forests, flowers, animals, and skies were randomly formed. It is hard to deny the beauty and the peace one can feel while sitting in silence and looking into the night sky. Beyond that, answered prayers tell me there is a God. I have prayed too many times and seen answers too many times for me to think that it has all been coincidence. These were prayers that expressed my concerns of which no one knew, yet were accompanied by answers that were so specific and detailed. God loves us to a degree we cannot comprehend, and as we look we will feel His love in very powerful and comforting ways. Show more

  • Everything in nature tells me that there is a God. The universe is so ordered, so perfectly in harmony. If you really study our wonderful little planet, you'll learn that it is so amazingly unique to be able to sustain life, that there is just no way the earth and its inhabitants were merely created by chance. The most important reason I know there is a God, though, is because I have felt his presence in my life. Through prayer, I have built a relationship with him, and as such, I love him and know that he loves me. Show more

  • Look around you, everything testifies to the existence of someone greater than we are. We call him God. He is our creator and he created everything around us. There is no doubt, for I have asked, and found out for myself. Show more
