Do you believe in miracles? A miracle is defined as “a deviation from the known laws; a supernatural event.” (Webster’s Dictionary) Jesus performed several miracles during his ministry. All of which were done to draw eyes to see a mighty God. Each miracle was impressive but the reason behind the miracle was most important as well. There was a teaching behind each one.
With Lazarus, it was Martha’s faith. (John 11:1-44) When Jesus turned water into wine, it was to demonstrate his glory. (John 2:1-11) When He healed the nobleman’s son, it was to change the heart of the nobleman. (John 4:46-54) When Jesus fed the five thousand, it was to show how He can satisfy the hunger of man’s need. (Matthew 14:14-21) Miracles served to show us that Jesus is who He says He is and that we are in need of him.
Do miracles still happen today? I believe so. I believe they happen daily. The birth of a baby, a new marriage, a new job, someone fills a need, a healing takes place, a relationship is restored, we find the strength to survive a trial, and the baby sleeps through the night, finally. God has not changed who He is so why would miracles in the lives of His children end? He is the same today, tomorrow and the days to come. (Hebrews 13:8) He still loves us and still desires for us to grow…for our good and unto His glory. “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” (Revelation 4:11) This includes all those miracles written in the Word and still happening today.
