For three reasons;
· Because he predicts the future
· Because he answers prayer
· Because I am born again.
No man can predict the future with any consistent accuracy. There are lucky guess and educated guesses and other ways we can predict what will come but invariably we are fooled. The only one to accurately and constantly predict the future is God.
Take for example the old testament. Here we find predictions of Israel being ejected from the holy land for their misdeeds but that they would return in
exactly 70 years. These predictions came true exactly in the case of the Babylonian exile. There were exact prediction of the coming Messiah. They proved
absolutely accurate in every detail of his life, death and resurrection. Then there is the new testament where God predicted what would first befall the church
after Jesus left, the persecution was pictured to a tee. Then there was Jesus' detailed prediction of how the temple would be destroyed with "not a
stone left on a stone." Again, absolutely accurate. And how Israel would be spread abroad but in the last days they would return to their homeland. All
happened exactly. Read it for yourself! No one else can do that.
In addition God himself has shown my wife and I many things that would happen in our life. He never failed in his accuracy.
As for answered prayer, many is the time we have prayed for something and it happened exactly as we asked. Not always, sometimes the answer was no, but
certainly enough to prove beyond any possibility that somehow there is a relationship between our private prayer and what then happened. For example my
daughter was born with a collapsed lung and rushed to surgery. We prayed and our pastor prayed. The doc came back shaking his head. "I don't
understand it but there is nothing wrong with her" he said. the God of heaven heard and answered. Almost all true Christians have experienced this.
Finally, I am born again. I changed dramatically when I accepted Christ. I liken it to having lived in a dark room with only a little ambient light to
guide you. You felt your way around and could not see clearly. Being born again was like someone turned on a flood light in that room. Everything came
dazzlingly clear. You could now see in minute detail. What a difference. Again, every born again Christian has experienced this transformation.
So for these three reasons I believe in God. He predicts the future accurately, answers personal prayers and because I was born again of the spirit.
