Miracles still happen, but some people do not believe in them. They believe in the historical accounts of the miraculous in the Bible, but not today.
Let’s recount some miracles from scripture. First, the widow of’ Zarephath saw her flour bin and jar of oil replenished daily until the end of the famine (I Kings 17).
A Roman army officer asked the Lord to heal his paralyzed servant (Matthew 8). The centurion said his home was not worthy of the Lord’s presence. However, this officer knew and believed the Lord could say the word, and the miracle would take place. Instead, the Lord performed this miracle miles away from the soldier’s home.
Ten lepers approached the Lord (Luke 17:11-19) and asked for mercy. The Lord responded, “Go show yourself to the priest.” As they went, they were all healed from this dreaded disease. Only one, a Samaritan, returned to thank Jesus for his miraculous healing. His thanksgiving resulted in an eternal change of destination. The other nine did not thank Jesus for answering prayer. Are we guilty of not thanking Jesus for answering prayer?
The woman at the well gave water to the Lord. In return, she received living water and the privilege of sharing the gospel with the village where she lived (John 4).
Acts three records Peter and John healing a lame man. The recipient rejoiced in his new ability to walk by praising God in the temple for all to see and hear.
Prayer still works. God is still in the miracle business. His divine touch gives us sweet fellowship with him. The Lord releases our stress while healing our infirmities with his moments of grace. I’m glad our God is still in the miracle business!
