Show me, God!
The aircraft remains connected to the base from which it took off; the ship is heading for the port, aimed by instruments not to turn because it would be lost. The spotlight’s light is aimed at the sky at night, but it all depends on the source from which it came. All this is self-evident to us. Well, people no longer feel that we exist only by the presence of God, who leads us, maintains us, without whom we cannot say a single word to create a single thought. That we do not see God. What about that? What we don’t see today, and we recognize as reality.
For example, in radiation, the spacecraft is kept in orbit by an invisible connection to the base. What would happen to the cabin, and the astronauts orbiting the earth or the moon completely lost contact with the ground? What would happen if they changed direction and flew into the unattended spaces of space? A stray boulder, lost and doomed. Do you think it’s different with us? God does not have to exist as visible things. There are things that we can capture with devices—for example, radio or television waves. But some facts cannot be captured by any device—for example, love, hate. Love alone, hatred cannot see, but we see their effects. We can’t even see the electric current, but we see that a light bulb connected to an electric current is lit, and if it is not connected to an electric current, it doesn’t shine. He must also experience moments of silence.
The world bears witness to God. Everything testifies of God. Everything testifies to him by existing. Our knowledge of God is not direct. We find it behind things and the world as a necessary foundation and reason for the world. This leads us to the idea that God is out of the world. But then he seemed to sustain the world. God is more than the world. He is above the earth. He is everywhere, also in us. It is not remote. As St. Paul says: We live in him, we move, and we are. It must be amazed that we do not understand everything and cannot express it. God is more significant than our minds and our hearts. I may have problems with faith. I may have trouble. But I should be willing to deal with them. The whole truth is revealed only to an honest, direct, and peaceful heart. Only then can I discover God, who is already speaking to me in my heart. Only then can my faith be a personal decision and a transforming force.
