No one has ever seen God.
However in Christ Jesus, God has been fully revealed. God is invisible!
Moses sought to see the glory of God and God said to him; I shall make my goodness pass before you… But my face, you cannot see, for no human being can see me and survive’ (Exodus 33:19-20).
Nevertheless, that God cannot be seen is no proof that God does not exist. A man took his child to gaze at the sky and asked her if she could see God. The child anwsered No! Her father then told her that God does not exist since God cannot be seen.
Through the power of the Holy Spirit, her daughter asked her younger brother to gaze at daddy’s head to see if he could see dad’s brain and her brother said he could see hair not brain. She then asked her father if it would be right to say he has no brain since his brain cannot be seen?
The works of God reveals God to us if we open our reason to faith.
In Psalm 8, David acknowledged the supremacy of God through the works of His hand. Who could have made heaven and the earth and all that they contain?
If we look at the sky, a gulf, an ocean, imagine a forest jungle, high mountains and deep valleys, contemplate the different lower animals and of course the nature and existence of the human person, we will see God.
