Why We Don't Need to Prove to Atheists God Exists

"Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion" (Is. 8:18).

Pharaoh asked scornfully, "Who is the Lord?" (Ex. 5:2). At God's command, Aaron threw down his rod and it became a snake. Pharaoh's magicians laughed as their rods also turned into snakes, but the laughter died when Aaron's snake (rod) devoured theirs.

God proclaimed, "I will multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt" (Ex. 7:3). As 10 plagues ravaged the land, Pharaoh, his magicians and all of Egypt came to know beyond a doubt who the Lord is.

God is multiplying His signs and wonders in our generation.

Just as in the days of Moses, God is revealing Himself to the scoffers, the doubters, the cynics and the sinners who scornfully ask, "Who is the Lord?"

You do not need to prove or defend God to skeptics. Simply lift up the name of Jesus and speak about your faith with simplicity and clarity. Love your enemies, thereby demonstrating who God is to them.

Lord, I trust You to reveal Yourself through signs and wonders. Let Your enemies see who You are. Amen.
