During Jesus’ ministry miracles were performed at different times, which was part of the drawing of believers. Today we do not see miracles as there were in Biblical times, however miracles do still happen. Some people might call it happenstance, chance or coincidence; I like to think of it as the Holy Spirit, or at times a miracle.
If you ever have been in the NICU at a Children’s Hospital you will believe in miracles. My granddaughter was there for 7 weeks. She had several things going on in her tiny life. You can read her story here. To look at her now you would never know she had any problems. Yes we consider her our miracle baby.
A friend of mine has a little boy that just turned a year old this last week. He weighed 1 lb and 6 oz and she was only 23wks along. Yes God still performs miracles.
‘And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight. Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.’ Luke 7:21-23
‘Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.’
‘And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: but these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.’ John 20:30-31
