He Thought There Was No God

Key Verse

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. ” Psalms 53:1a

Text — Psalm 53:1-6


Jedi grew up with his father who believed that there was no God because things were not going well with his family. One day, some Christians visited Jedi’s school fellowship and many pupils who had not been attending were invited. Jedi was one of them, he attended the fellowship, heard the gospel, and understood God’s love through the sacrifice of Jesus. He decided to surrender his life to Christ. He then confessed his sins and invited Jesus into his heart as his personal Saviour and Lord. Jedi continued to attend the school fellowship after that day.

During the holidays, Jedi’s father saw him reading a Bible and he asked who gave him. His son explained what happened to him in school; and he said, “So you now believe that there is God?” “Yes, daddy and He loves everybody, including you”, his son replied. Jedi’s father asked his son for a proof that there is God and He answers prayers. The boy told his father to pray and ask God for something. The man prayed to get a good job so that he could take care of his family. He did not really believe it could happen because he had been going job seeking without any luck.

Five days after his prayer, an old friend from school who had not seen him for over twenty years, called him and explained that his company needed someone they could trust to manage their new office in another city. Jedi’s father decided to give the offer a trial and was employed. The job came with good salary. He later thanked his son as he admitted that God really exists and cares for His creatures. God is real, believe in Him.
