The Mystery of Miracles

Miracles create a certain mystery . .

The biggest questions are what is my role and what is God’s role?

Another thought. If God wants to heal me then why would I have to do anything?

If it’s providence that I will be healed then should I just wait and do nothing?

There are countless examples in scripture where God required an act of faith in order for a miracle to occur.

There are also other times where it looked as though God simply performed a miracle without any act required.

Most miracles (not all) in scripture required some form of human cooperation with God. When God gave us dominion I believe He placed the earth under our care and authority.

I also believe that God does miracles in cooperation with our prayers and our faith.  I am not saying He does not have permission to move alone, but I am saying He rarely does.

God does not respond to need alone.  God responds by faith. If God responded to need then there would be no hunger, no sorrow, and no pain.

God does not respond to need, but to faith that is aligned to His purpose.

Hebrews 11:1 declares…Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Miracles do not always happen, where they are needed, but where they are wanted.

I believe that God wants to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think. I love to say if we can think it, God can do it.

Faith is the key to any and every miracle.

Jesus told us to have faith in God and we would see mountains moved and cast into the sea.

There are seen and unseen things that God is waiting to do.

Things that we call miracles, God calls normal.

Only believe!

Would love to hear your thoughts and stories of how God performed a miracle for you.
