The fact the Bible itself even exists is proof alone God exists.
The Bible is NOT a book. It is a collection of 66 books, bound into one volume, written by some 40 different authors from a variety of cultures, social standings, backgrounds and educational levels over a 1500 plus year time period and all written on single subject - God's dealings with His creation - all in harmony with the others.
Nothing even close to that has ever been done before and will not ever be done again.
We can go to any busy traffic center, airport, shopping center, popular amusement park - anywhere - and select just 4 people at random and have them write a book on any subject we choose to be collected a year later.
When we collected the books we would find glaring differences in them. About the only harmony the books would have with each other would be the consistent subject. No matter how many times we performed the experiment, the result would be the same.
And that's only with 4 authors. Ramp the figure up 40 authors totaling 66 books and we can see just how unlikely it would be to duplicate the collection of books we have come to call the "Bible."
Nothing has even come slightly close to anything like the Bible and nothing never will.
Is this unity and harmony a fluke, a product of pure chance? How is it possible?
While the Bible itself alone is proof of the existence of God we find the explanation within its pages...
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV)
How was this one of a kind harmonious work done?
19 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. (1 Peter 1:19-21 NKJV)
