Scientists have been trying hard to figure out how the universe got started. Here's my simple consideration of all the possibilities.
(1) There was absolutely nothing, not even the space the universe exists in, then the universe came into being. Something coming into existence from nothingness ~ this is only possible if God had been there. (2) Space has always been in existence and the stuff the universe is made of came into being later. Mind you, even if space is all empty and invisible to us, it is something that is a reality. Again, it points to the existence of God, the creator. (3) The stuff the universe is made of has always existed. In that case, there wasn't a beginning to speak of. This would be totally beyond the understanding of man, but becomes completely logical if you believe that God has always existed.
When the Lord gave his name as I AM in the Scriptures, he revealed his everlasting existence. And he became the logical answer to all our questions.
