Miracles: No Faith

hem-of-his-garment issue-of-blood jesus-christGod is mighty. He can move mountains. So why do we limit him to the miracles of creation, incarnation, atonement, resurrection, and salvation? Why do we divide ourselves up, believing that God heals only souls and spirits? He can heal minds and bodies too. All God has to do is speak the word. Do we ask him? Do we believe that God can perform miracles? He’s not a weak and fallible human being. God doesn’t lie or repent (Numbers 23:19). “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).[1] So where is our faith?

Most Bible-believing Christians think they’re better than Deists, who believe only in creation. But if they say that God can’t or won’t perform miracles today, then they limit him through unbelief. God won’t work a miracle if we don’t ask (James 4:2). Nothing is impossible with him (Luke 1:37). Mustard-seed faith in this miracle-working God can move a mountain (Matthew 17:20). So where is our faith?

God can heal any disease, including ones that doctors call “incurable.” God can also make blind people see, deaf people hear, dumb people speak, and lame people walk. He can even make dead people return to life again! Nothing is “too hard for the Lord” (Genesis 18:14). Do we believe? Or are we “children in whom is no faith” (Deuteronomy 32:20)?

He’ll do it again
Yes, he’ll do it again
Just take a look at where you are now
And where you’ve been
Hasn’t he always come through for you
He’s the same now as then
You may not know how
And you may not know when
But he’ll do it again
– “He’ll Do It Again” (Karen Wheaton)
