Knowing the Miracle Worker Changes Your Perspective on Life

What does the Bible say about miracles in our world today? Do you believe miracles still happen? Here’s the truth: there are more than eight thousand promises in the Bible.

That’s a lot of promises! But more important than knowing or reciting those eight thousand promises is knowing the promise giver Himself. Second Peter 3:18 tells us to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” Are you growing in your knowledge of the Lord?

Who really is Jesus, and does He do miracles?

After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother and brought them up to a high mountain alone, and was transfigured before them. His face shone as the sun, and His garments became white as the light. Suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.

Then Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If You wish, let us make three tabernacles here: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”

While he was still speaking, suddenly a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased. Listen to Him.”

When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were filled with awe. But Jesus came and touched them and said, “Rise and do not be afraid.” When they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. —Matthew 17:1-8, MEV

For Jesus to do the miraculous in our world today we have to see Him for who He truly is!

If we see God as good and pleasant and appreciate Him, that is good but it’s not really personal or a priority or relevant in our hearts. This kind of awe produces thoughts that God is there but He is irrelevant in our lives, so we become indifferent to His presence and person.

If we see God as magnificent, all-powerful, sacred, and our loving Father, then our perspective of Him will be filled with the awe of sacred reverence, respect, amazement, astonishment, wonder, personal intimacy, hope, faith, confidence, inspiration and expectation.

Does God give you the Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by hearing with faith? Even Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness. Therefore know that those who are of faith are the sons of Abraham. —Galatians 3:5-7, MEV
