Do miracles really happen?
At one point in your life, you’ll be seated next to someone you love lying on her death bed.
And when all hope seems lost, whether you’re religious or not, you’ll bow your head and say, “God, if you’re listening, I need a miracle.”
Whatever the result, God really does hear your plea.
It goes without saying though that not every prayer gets the response we want.
So when and why does God perform miracles? For a clue, let’s look to the miracles of Jesus.
He healed people of disease, drove out demons and fed thousands with just a few loaves and fish. Why these miracles?
In short, Jesus’ miracles are a grand announcement.
They signal something even bigger than the miracles themselves.
Jesus is announcing that He was sent by the Father and that He came to heal our broken relationship with God.
We became separated from God through sin.
Jesus, by dying on the cross and rising again, has come to free us from sin and reconcile us with the Father.
Your prayers – God hears them with compassion. But if the miracle you’ve asked for doesn’t happen, it’s not because He fell short. Consider that he may be planning something greater for you and the one you love.
