After reading many self-help books, I realized that many Great Thinkers believe in God. Brian Tracy, the famous motivational speaker, refers to God as the Super-conscious mind. Wallace D. Wattles, the late American author, refers to God as the Thinking Substance. These individuals believe that trusting God is essential for a successful life. Besides great thinkers, my parents and teachers have always stressed on the power of believing in God.
For these reasons, I always wondered why so much emphasis is placed on believing in God. I then meditated on God and realized that everybody should believe in God because:
- God Exists
You must believe in the existence of a Highly Intelligent Higher Power/God because it exists.
I’ve never read any philosophical theory that convinced me that God doesn’t exist. Atheists claim that life came from nothing. This is a lie because life cannot come from nothing. Nothing can’t create something. Something has to create things, and this ‘something’ is God.
Taking a closer look at creation proves that God exists because nature appears to be designed by an intelligent designer. I love animals dearly, and every time I see them, I realize that they are designed in a way that matches their way of living.
Birds have hollow bones to enable flight. Fish have gills so that they can survive in water. The cheetah’s spine is flexible to enable high speeds. Who designed the gills, fins, and the cheetah’s spine? Did they come from nothing?
By the way, in 2014, I hit rock-bottom and doubted God’s existence because I wondered why he couldn’t solve my problems. I then read several books that attempted to prove God’s existence but they never made me believe in God. But one day, while I was thinking about God’s existence, a friend showed up at my house and told me that God exists.
I wondered what made him tell me about God’s existence because I didn’t ask him. I also wondered what made him come at my place despite that he rarely visited me.
Anyway, I concluded that God wanted to prove his existence through him. From this day, I have never doubted God’s existence.
- Life Becomes Purposeful
When you believe in God, your life becomes purposeful because you easily embrace the idea that God created humans to fulfill a certain purpose. A purposeful life makes you mindful, decisive, and happier.
Studies show that many people who don’t believe in God think life is meaningless. The belief in a meaningless, purposeless, and Godless world often makes such people to easily succumb to fear, stress, and depression.
- You Will Have Faith in the Future
Recently, it dawned on me that people who believe in God have faith in the future. They believe God is ensuring that they have a better future. For this reason, they have a peaceful state of mind because they believe God is working behind the scene on their favor.
- You Will Set Bigger Goals
I also learned that many inventors dared to invent what people believed was impossible because they believed that a Supreme Intelligence was assisting and guiding them. As Brian Tracy writes in his book, Maximum Achievement: ‘Great people had an attitude of confidence that there was a power greater than themselves that was helping them.’
It is hard to believe in the achievement of great things if you know you are working alone. However, when you believe in God and convince yourself that you are working with him, you’ll have the audacity to set BIG and ‘unrealistic’ goals because you’ll be convinced that God, the Greatest Power in the Universe, will help you achieve your goals.
‘My confidence comes from knowing that there is something greater than myself that I am a part of and is also a part of me. I call that God. I do nothing without this understanding.’ – Oprah Winfrey.’
