In your quiet moments, I know you think about me. People are curious about God.
Everyone naturally is, but most don’t want to be pounced on or pressured or argued about with their God thoughts. They can feel defensive because of people trying to evangelize them when they aren’t ready and are asking spiritual questions in our ask spiritual questions in awkward ways at awkward times.
There are also moments when you think about what comes after life afterlife. Is there life after death? Do we die, and that’s it? Is there life after death? Do we have to qualify to get it? Is there a real heaven and real hell? How do we know what is true?
What if I’m wrong about what I believe?
Will God, if there is one, hold that against me?
These thoughts come to mind almost involuntarily when you’re alone sitting by a campfire overlooking a lake as the sunsets. They come to you when someone you love passes away. Will you ever see him again, you ask yourself.
How will I know?
You have those thoughts because everyone on the face of the earth has had them, everyone without exception.
To the best of my knowledge, there’s never been a group discovered — if they lived in the most isolated places on earth — that didn’t believe in a deity of some kind.
It’s a universal belief.
By definition, the atheist has to have thoughts about God’s possible existence to come to a conclusion in their mind that no god exists.
At the same time, the atheist may not recognize that there lies the major problem with their view.
If there is no god and never has been, somewhere, there should have been a people group discovered or a single individual found who asked about their belief in God answered with something like this: What is a God? I don’t know what you mean?
God does exist, and he made his existence known to everyone.
I believe God is always trying to reach out to us no matter who you are, where you are, what you’re doing — he’s knocking on your door.
Through the circumstances of life, people places things that are happening he’s always there going knock knock knock. If you’re ready you open that door it can be a life-changing experience for you. It’s all up to you. You have the gift of free-will to choice.
Most of the emails and comments we get here at Lindner Media concerning our show’s inspirational closes are positive. Naturally, some aren’t. We understand that. I often get the question – why would you be motivated to do these inspirational messages?
I can best say that I am led to it. When something is important to you, it has a continuing and different way to impress itself on your heart and mind. It’s something you can’t help but pay attention to. I call this listening to God.
The fact that others are able to gain something that helps them in their lives from sharing our views fills us up. It is intended to be a positive message of encouragement and hope.
