Modern Day Miracles
There has been much controversy around miracles. Some wonder whether miracles really exist. What is a miracle? Are miracles really possible in today’s day and time? These are steps to get your modern day miracle.
In the bible, there are many accounts of miracles. Jesus healed the sick, opened blind eyes, and raised from the dead. According to John 12:37, But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him.
The first step in receiving a miracle is to believe. You must believe that Jesus is who he says he is. When you begin to know that Jesus is a healer, provider, and a way maker, you open yourself up to receive miracles. And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him; and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
You also have to believe that he is able. Ephesians 3:20 says Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. If you do not believe that he is able, then do not expect a miracle. You first must believe that he can do it. The power that works within you increases or decreases your chances of receiving a miracle.
You have to believe that he will do it for you. A miracle is a gift. It is not something that we receive just because we are faithful, or because we work hard. A gift is something that we do not deserve. A gift can be given freely. The Lord gives gifts to whomever he wants to give them to. Your faith in God is the fuel to the fire. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
In the bible, the woman with the issue of blood was healed when she touch the hem of his garment. The bible says in Matthew 9:20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment.
You have to believe that you have received it. The bible goes on to say for she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. It also goes on to say but Jesus turned him bout, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. Your faith has made you whole.
Miracles are still occurring today. Although we do not have access to Jesus in the flesh today, we do have the Holy Spirit. In John 14:16, Jesus said and I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever. This is the power that works within you.
