What is a miracle?
Merriam-Webster defines a miracle as “an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs (the healing miracles described in the Gospels)”.
Do miracles still happen?
Do you believe in miracles? Why? Why not?
Have you ever witnessed a miracle first hand?
Why doesn’t God do miracle in everyone’s life?
Let me take those questions one at a time:
Do miracles still happen? Yes they do: for example, the birth of a healthy baby that doctors predicted would have severe deficits or not live more than a few moments.
Do you believe in miracles? Why? Why not? Yes I do. There is no such thing as coincidence or happenstance only divine appointments with our Heavenly Father where he moves in such a way that the only explanation is that His power and grace were used on our behalf to bring forth His ultimate blessing that we refer to as a miracle.
Have you ever witnessed a miracle first hand? Yes, I have. My husband has had problems with his eyes since he was born and over the last few years, the problems have gotten progressively worse. Over the last 2 months, he had two operations and more medication than either he or I want to think about. Yesterday the ophthalmologist gave us the good news that the vision is his right eye is now 20/20; his left eye (previously considered legally blind) is 20/25. These results far exceed what that doctor had hoped for.
Why doesn’t God do miracles in everyone’s life? (Borrowed from Pastor Nathan Bargo) Miracles cannot happen if there are unbelievers in the room (See Mark 5:39-41). Asking others to pray for you is not enough. You must also pray for yourself, believing that God will always do what is best for you. However, He is a gentleman and will NEVER force his will on anyone.
