| IS GOD REAL?
- - - - - - -
Have you ever asked yourself or others if God was real? Have you wondered quietly to yourself if you should even give him the time of day? Do you see the bad in the world and wonder if God was real, why would he let these things happen? I have. At some point in my life I've asked all of these questions.

A couple of guys from my church and I went out into our town to see if there were people who needed/wanted prayer. We came across this guy who looked beaten up, bleeding from the head and drunk. It was obvious he needed prayer so we stopped and asked him. The 1st thing he came out with was, "God isn't real, if God was real my life wouldn't be like this, would it?" My friend replied, "if I go and stick my hand on a hot stove and burn myself and then you try to tell me that heat doesn't exist and that I'm crazy, I wouldn't believe you because I had that experience." God will reveal himself to those who are seeking him. If you ask God to show himself he will, you just need to keep your heart, mind and eyes open. He works in mysterious ways. By the end of the time with this man, he said that he would go away and pray to God about his life and if it got better he would know why. But before we left him I'd been praying for a sudden change of heart and openness to God. And that was a prayer answered straight away. The bad things in the world happen because there is sin in the world. We are corrupt until we come to jesus. He makes us new again. And all we have to do is have faith the size of a mustard seed.
