Some people may be skeptical that God still does miracles today. But there is proof of God’s miracles today. The definition of a miracle is “a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.” If you look around at your world, you will see many examples of God’s miracles.

The miracle of life is just one of God’s many miracles that He performs. You reading this article right now is a miracle. The fact that you woke up this morning is a miracle. With every breath you take, that is proof that God still does miracles today. Would you be able to remember to pump your own heart every single second? Probably not. Yet our heart never stops pumping. That is a miracle.

Healing

When people think miracle, the first think that probably comes to their mind is “healing.” And while healing is not the only miracle, it is a miracle. I’ve personally experienced supernatural healing during altar time at church, both for myself and friends. I’ve seen people who were told they would have to have a serious surgery to heal them, but when we prayed for them they were completely healed; no surgery necessary.

Salvation

Salvation is arguably the most amazing miracle of all time. When we are saved, we are literally snatched out of Satan’s hands and placed into Jesus’ arms. When salvation occurs, the person being saved is no longer forced to spend eternity suffering in the pits of hell, but they are now able to spend eternity in the presence of their Lord and Savior. I have been praying for my grandparents to be saved. They aren’t saved yet. I have faith that they will be saved, and that will be an amazing miracle.

Gifts of the Spirit

The gifts of the Spirit is also a miracle. A few of the gifts include prophesy, speaking in tongues, healing, and encouragement. There are more listed in 1 Corinthians 12. The gift that I’m going to focus on right now is the gift of tongues. When we speak in tongues, we are speaking in a language that no man can understand. It’s a special language between you and God. We as humans are not able to speak in tongues without the power of the Holy Spirit inside of us. When we are baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, I believe that it is a miracle. Tongues is not the only gift that is a miracle. Every gift of the Spirit and the fact that we as sinful humans are able to receive those gifts is a miracle.

Love

Love. Unconditional love. God’s love, the love of family, friends, pastors, teachers, and strangers. That someone could live a sinful life but love us so much that He was willing to die a sinners death to show us how much He loved us. That’s a miracle. We often let people down. We constantly let God down. But the people that truly care about us love us unconditionally. No matter what we do or how bad we screw up, our family, friends, and God will never stop loving us. That is such an amazing miracle. “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

Moving Mountains

Miracles occurred often in Bible times, because Jesus was walking the earth during that time. But ever since Jesus ascended into Heaven at the end of Acts, many people have been quick to say that miracles don’t happen anymore because Jesus isn’t here anymore. But what they don’t realize is that Jesus is still here, dwelling inside of His followers. Before He went back to Heaven, He told His disciples that they would do the things He did, and even greater things. And that promise is still active today.

Faith is the cornerstone of miracles. The Bible promises that if we have faith the size of a mustard seed, then we will be able to move mountains. That scripture doesn’t mean literal mountains. I believe that it means mountains in people’s lives. Mountains such as sickness and unsaved family members. So if we have faith and believe that God still does miracles, and that He can do miracles through us, I believe that we will be able to move the mountains in people’s lives. “He said to them, ‘…For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.’” Matthew 17:20

So next time you’re wondering about whether or not God still does miracles, take a look around you. Miracles are often right under your nose.
