Four ways God reveals Himself

September 27th, 2009

Many people search for God at some time in their lives. They ask and question if God is real. Many ask God to reveal Himself to them, especially during the hard times that life brings. Here are four ways God has revealed Himself to us all.

1. God has revealed Himself through creation

The Bible tells us in Psalm 19:1-2, “The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known”. This magnificant world that we live in point to a God who created all things. As the above verse says, His creation reveals God to us.

2. God reveals Himself in mankind

The Bible tells us that we are all made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-27). This means God has imprinted His DNA into ours. When we live in loving relationships, or when use our God given gifts to work, or we creatively make a masterpiece, or when we make choices for good, we are reflecting God’s image and making Him known.

3. God reveals Himself by intervening in our world

In the Book of Exodus we see that God intervened in the life of the people of Israel (Exodus 14:1-29). The people were up against the Red Sea with Pharaohs army approaching. There was no hope until God intervened and parted the Red Sea. God is a God who loves us and is interested in intervening in our lives. He is not a far off and distant God as some people think.

4. God revealed Himself in Jesus Christ

The Bible tells us that God has revealed Himself in Jesus Christ. Colossians 1:15 says, “Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation”. If you have ever wondered what God is like, then look at the life and person of Jesus Christ.

So there you have it, four ways that God has revealed Himself to us all. From these things we see that He is not a distant God that is far removed from His creation. He reveals Himself in His creation, He reveals Himself in us, by His intervention in the world and in the life and person of Jesus Christ.
