Does God Still Work Miracles?
Yes! Yes and yes! I am so excited and happy to say that God is still in the miracle working business. How do I know? I have seen Him do it! This past Sunday many of us (at The First Baptist Church of Glenarden) witnessed God performing a miracle for one of our church members and her child last week. In addition, there has been story after story reporting miracles that God has performed. Our pastor concluded that, “This is a season for miracles!” Is there anybody out there that has a situation that only God can fix? I don’t know about you, but I am believing God for a miracle! Do you believe?
What is a Miracle? A miracle is defined as “an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause. It’s a divine act that can only be accredited to God. I have also heard it described as “An instance when God suspended the regular way that the universe functions to interject His activity. (Book: Breathe by Priscilla Shirer)
Miracles in the Bible: God worked miracles in biblical times and He is still performing miracles today. If He did it before, He can do it again! Just to remind you of a few of the miracles that God performed, here is a list of some of the popular stories.
- Jesus Feeds the Five thousand (Matthew 14:13-21)
- Jesus Walks on Water (Matthew 14:22-33)
- Jesus Raises Lazarus from the Dead (John 11:1-44)
- Ten Plagues of Egypt (Exodus 9:27)
- Crossing of the Red Sea (Exodus 14)
- Jesus Exorcises Legion (Luke 8:26-39)
- Balaam and his Talking Donkey (Numbers 22:28)
- Joshua Stops the Sun (Joshua 10:13)
- The Girl Restored to Life (Luke 8:49)
- The 3 Hebrew Boys in the blazing furnace (Daniel 3:1-30)
Why Does God Work Miracles? A miracle is a reminder that God is real. He wants us to worship Him and live a life that is devoted to Him. Have you ever witnessed something miraculous? Just recently we saw a Prince Georges County school bus catch fire and some how, the bus driver was able to get all of the children off of the bus safely and go back on the bus to check and make sure that she had everyone. As soon as she stepped off of the bus, the bus blew up into flames. She and all of the children were safe. (Praise God!) When something like this happens you know that man had nothing to do with it, only God. Miracles remind us of God and cause us to experience His supernatural power, protection, healing and provision.
In conclusion, I just want to remind you that God is still in the miracle working business. So if you need a miracle in your marriage, family, finances, health or in your career. Believe God! Nothing is impossible to those who believe. God can do anything! Trust God for your miracle!
Until next week. . .
