“How Does God Use Miracles”
4 of 5
Miracles are Visible Signs only God
GOD’S WORD ON WHAT ARE MIRACLES
Isaiah 41:19-20 . . . I will plant
trees-cedar, acacia, myrtle, olive, cypress, fir, and pine-on barren land.
Everyone will see this miracle and understand that it is the Lord, the Holy
One of Israel, who did it. Miracles are visible signs only God can perform
that help us know him and see his hand in our lives.
HOW DOES GOD USE MIRACLES?
2 Kings 17:36 . . . Worship only the Lord, who brought you out of
Egypt with such mighty miracles and power. You must worship him and bow
before him; offer sacrifices to him alone.
Daniel 6:27 . . . He rescues and saves his people; he performs
miraculous signs and wonders in the heavens and on earth. He has rescued
Daniel from the power of the lions.
Micah 7:15 . . . “Yes,” says the Lord,
“I will do mighty miracles for you, like those I did when I
rescued you from slavery in Egypt.”
God uses miracles to rescue us.
Exodus 10:1 . . . Then the Lord said to Moses, “Return to Pharaoh and again make your demands. I have made him and his
officials stubborn so I can continue to display my power by performing
miraculous signs among them.” God uses miracles to show his power.
Matthew 8:3 . . . Jesus touched him. “I want
to,” he said. “Be healed!” And instantly the
leprosy disappeared. God uses miracles to show his love for us.
Matthew 14:14 . . . A vast crowd was there as he stepped from the
boat, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick. God uses miracles
to show his compassion for us.
WHAT SHOULD OUR RESPONSE BE WHEN GOD PERFORMS MIRACLES IN OUR
Luke 19:37 . . . As they reached the place where the road started down
from the Mount of Olives, all of his followers began to shout and sing as
they walked along, praising God for all the wonderful miracles they had seen.
We should offer praise and thanksgiving to Him.
Psalm 9:1 . . . I will thank you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell
of all the marvelous things you have done. We can best show our thanks by
becoming a testimony to what God has done for us.
