Miracles Witnessed

Have you ever witnessed a miracle? If so, what kind of miracle was it? If not, do you want to see a miracle? How do you define miracles? Are they supernatural? Do you believe all miracles come from God? Have you heard someone say they can grant a miracle?

Miracles amaze us. We cannot explain them. We may have witnessed one. We may have heard the testimony of someone who has witnessed one. It may have been a miraculous healing. It may have been a miraculous saving. It may have been any one of many different possibilities.

I have heard stories of miraculous healings. I have heard doctors be unable to explain the healing that took place, whether it was the healing of an organ or the elimination of a disease. I have heard of miraculous savings. Someone survived with no injury an auto accident that police investigators say there is no way they should have survived, let alone be unscratched.

We can attribute those miracles to God, largely due to no one being involved in them. How do we explain a miracle that happens after someone prays over another? Did God work through the person praying? Did God answer the prayer? Does God give people the ability to grant miracles today? The answer to all these questions could be yes. What we do know is God grants miracles to achieve his work in this world.

We also know that miracles often come during an extremely difficult time. Things are usually dire when the miracle occurs. There is no other option than a miracle. So, do we really want to see a miracle? To see a miracle, we need to be close to a situation that only God can fix.

I pray we all believe in miracles. I pray we know that God grants miracles according to his will. I pray each one of us listen closely to the stories of miracles, but not need a miracle ourselves. Believe in miracles. Know that God grants miracles. Listen to the stories of miracles. Do not desire to witness a miracle. You are a miracle.

Galatians 3:5 So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard?
