Question:

I am 10 years old and this is my question: How do we know that there is a God?

 
Answer:

One way is to look at creation. The book of Romans in the New Testament tells us that God has put His knowledge in our hearts. "Since earliest times men have seen the earth and sky and all God made, and have known of His existence and great eternal power. So they will have no excuse (when they stand before God at Judgment Day)" Rom 1:19,20.

The watch on your arm didn’t ‘just happen’. Someone carefully designed it and put it together. And it is the same with the world. Everything you see around you shouts loudly that the Great Designer and Creator made it all perfectly. Another way to be sure is to ask Him! If God is personal, then He can communicate with you. The testimony of thousands of His children (from Bible times right up to today) is that He definitely talks to them. Why not start by reading His written revelation of Himself - the Bible? Start with the New Testament and humbly ask the Lord Jesus Christ to meet with you. That will be the most exciting thing you have ever done!
