Who is God?
God is your Creator. God created everything. When there was nothing, before anything ever existed, God existed, because God is eternal. Eternal means having no beginning and no end. God just always is.
God is Spirit. Spirit is invisible. So, we cannot see God with our eyes. But, we can see what God does.
Think about the wind. Can you see the wind with your eyes? No, you cannot. But, you know that the wind exists. How do you know? Because you can see what the wind does. You can see the leaves on the trees moving together, or even the trees themselves bending and swaying, and then you know that the wind is blowing.
You cannot see God with your eyes, but you can see what God does. God created everything. So, when you see the trees and the birds, the grass and the bugs, when you see the sun, the moon and the stars, when you see people and creatures of every kind, you know that God is.
You may wonder, “Where is God?”
God is everywhere. God is infinite. That’s another way of saying that God doesn’t have a beginning or an end. There is no place where God is not. Sometimes, though, we forget this. When we care only about ourselves and no one else, it’s like we are turning away from God. We pretend that He doesn’t exist or we ignore Him. But this is living a lie. God is the truth.
You may ask, “Why should I care about God?”
Because God cares about you. You exist because of God. The whole universe exists because of God. Without God, there is nothing – so, there is no you. God chose to create you because God loves you. God loves you more than you can ever imagine! The more that you love God, the happier you will be.
