A person said that miracle is something supernatural. Someone else considered as miracle even the fact that he was waking up each morning breathing and being alive. Another friend brought the dictionary and read the official definition.
Angus Buchan said few important things:
- When we pray…the word IF does not exist;
- A miracle is not about difficulties but about impossibilities.
- “There is power in prayer. When men work, they work but when men pray, God works.”
You can pick up any of the above suggestions, understandings or perceptions.
It is essential to know:
- What the word of God says about miracles;
- About believers’ authority;
- About the will of God.
Let’s look at one by one the above thoughts. It is impossible to understand what the Spirit says if we do not go through quite few scriptures. In fact, the scriptures say plenty than any personal comment…so forgive my slight silence!
- What the Word of God says about Miracles?
“And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive [them], and you will have [them].
“Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Mark 16 v16-20
“He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.”And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; “they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
- About the will of God.
“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”
“And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Then Jesus put out [His] hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”
And above all, there are two very vital, strong, amazing verses:
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater [works] than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”
“So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done.”
As I copy all the above scriptures, I am overwhelmed by their boldness, strength and assurance of receiving miracles. I really feel like going out and shout to everybody what a God we serve; a God of miracles, miracles that He is Willing to do!
There are a lot of controversial debates about what His will is. Friends let’s read the Bible! His will is in it. For example, it is written that “By His stripes you were healed. (Isaiah 53v5)” How do you doubt your healing? (I agree that one day we will all die, but till then you can claim healing!)
What is His will? Read all the above verses and you will find what His will is. Read also His commandments, read His instruction, read His promises, put the armour of God, do all and stand, be still and know that He is God!
At the end of the day comes down to having faith and having NO doubts!
Reading the Gospels, we observe that whoever reached Jesus with faith for a miracle, they received it.
Wherever there was failure, Jesus Christ had only one comment: “you of little faith”…
You might be in a difficult situation at this moment, in an impossible situation and you think…”oh, what you know! If you knew what I go through…how can you judge me and my faith…I have prayed, I have done it all…”
If we have done it all, we need to stand, be still and wait upon the Lord. The miracle might not arrive now; it will arrive at God’s perfect time. However, if we start questioning it and speak “ ifs”…the doubt is present, the game is lost!
Do you know clearly that this is God’s will? Then stand! If you feel weak to stand alone, ask Jesus to stand with you and us, brothers and sisters to stand in agreement with you.
It is just matter of time!
