God Still Performs Miracles

Posted By at Wednesday, November 08, 2017

I spoke to someone recently and they seemed surprised when I said that God still does miracles today. They seemed to think miracles were a thing of the past and only happened in Bible days. I assured them God had not changed as Malachi 3:6 tells us He is the Lord and He does not change!

But what is a miracle? A miracle is described as 'an extraordinary event wrought by God that cannot be explained by any natural means'.

Every time you stretch and use your faith, you please God according to Hebrews 11:6, and He performs miracles in response to your faith, I believe every time.

God does perform miracles today and I myself am proof.

Back in 1971 when I came to Australia with my wife and two children, I was a registered disabled person following a major motor accident in which I received five compound fractures in the left leg. I developed a problem with gangrene due to road dirt getting into the breaks. I was in hospital in 1967-68 for 14 months and had 14 major surgeries, including bone and skin grafts. It took a further two years to recover and my left leg was some five centimetres, (2.5 inches), shorter than the right, due to surgeons trimming the bone to try to get it to knit. It was during that hospital period that I got born again and committed my life to Jesus Christ. When we came to Australia I went to a meeting and was prayed for by Australia Evangelist Pastor Norm Armstrong [who became my mentor]. God wonderfully and immediately replaced the 5 cms of bone that had been removed during the trimming of the bone in the 14 operations back in Ireland. Up to that evening I had been wearing a built up shoe to help with walking and staying level.

Since that time I have been privileged to see God perform many miracles with other people as we have prayed for their need to be met. A number of people have been healed from incurable conditions, several people have been raised back to life by His miracle working power, all glory to His Name.

Today here is a question! Is there a problem in your life that needs a miracle?

Perhaps you have already decided that nothing is going to change! If that is so, then it, unfortunately, is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

How do you know things won't change? Is it because it has been that way for so long you see no chance of it changing? You have become so used to the situation, just like old comfortable slippers or jacket you don't want to get rid off.

But God wants you to stretch your faith today and supersede all the laws of nature and of man. God has done it many times in the past and He can do it again for you if you can believe His Word.

Matthew 19:26 New Living Translation Jesus looked at them intently and said, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible."

In John 15:7 Jesus said, "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you."

God is still in the miracle working, mountain moving business! So don't ever doubt or underestimate what He wants and can do in your life if you can believe.

Jesus also said in Mark 11:23-24 "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them."

You have to speak God's Word LOUDER than the mountain or the problem is speaking to you.

Finally in John 14:12 Jesus said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."

Go on, today, try to get your faith operating and get ready for the miracles! God is greater than any situation you find yourself in everyday.
