Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. (Isaiah 8:18)


Some theologians claim that miracles are “apostolic,” meaning they only happened when the first apostles were alive. They say that technology is responsible for all we accomplish today. But, this is not true. It’s just another device the enemy uses to distance us from our Creator. In fact, satan wants to take miracles out of the picture altogether. Even so, miracles are still happening every day all around us.

Why did Jesus perform miracles? There are several reasons. Even when Jesus lived and ministered in the flesh, skeptics and naysayers refused to believe He was the Son of God. So Jesus performed miracles to reveal who He was. Additionally, Jesus performed miracles to glorify God the Father. Last of all, He wanted to give us a preview of what eternal life with Him would be like. Hallelujah! Jesus modeled a lifestyle of performing miracles when He was here, and God is still performing miracles today—through and for each of us. 


Dear God, Hallelujah! Jesus modeled a lifestyle of performing miracles when He was here, and I believe God is still performing miracles today. He is no respecter of persons, and that means He can use me to perform miracles—in Christ— too! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
