Does God Still Do Miracles?

A miracle from the Creator's hand!

I was recently asked a question that I would like to pose to the readers of this blog.   I will post the question first, give some time for responses, and then share the response I gave to the individual who asked the question.
The question was in reference to 1 John 3:22, which says, “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of Him, because we keep His commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.”
Here’s what was asked in so many words, “If this is true, then why don’t we see more miracles now like we did in the past?”  The person also was adamant that this passage has to have lost something in the translation since they cannot possibly discount the faith of so many Christians living on earth today.
I think this question is pertinent to seeking closure for Jesus, and when I share my response to this individual, I think you will see it as well.   I will give a week or so for you to respond, and then share.   I may also have ready for posting, before then, a blog on a very interesting health topic submitted by our medical missionary.   More on that later.  Until then, I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. We are told of something impossible for God. It is impossible for Him to Lie! His word creates systems of stars beyond our power to compute. We need to have FAITH, for it is impossible to please God without faith. We are so small in faith and ask for so many small things when infinite power wants us to ask for large things. Let God be true and every man a liar.
    We must question ourselves first. Do I regard iniquity in my heart? Do I in all my ways acknowledge Him? Am I seeking my own glory or His? We let go the arm of the Lord too soon! What would have been the result had Elijah stopped praying after the sixth time? Do we trust His heart of Love when he says NO or WAIT? Could He actually be wiser that us and say NO for a good reason ( this is a silly question we sometimes forget His Infinite Wisdom!!!)? Why don’t we trust His word and pray in faith as Jesus (nevertheless not my will but thine be done!)?

  2. Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness. At 90 and 100 years of age, Abraham and Sarah had Isaac–this was humanly impossible! God says if we believe, all things are possible.
    Mary believed God and she conceived the Son of God by faith.
    Are we obedient to God in doing His will in all things? He can’t answer our prayers if we are disobedient. If we need a miracle, He will do it if it will glorify Him and be the best for us as His children.

  3. “Ask, then; ask, and ye shall receive. Ask for humility, wisdom, courage, increase of faith. To every sincere prayer an answer will come. It may not come just as you desire, or at the time you look for it; but it will come in the way and at the time that will best meet your need. The prayers you offer in loneliness, in weariness, in trial, God answers, not always according to your expectations, but always for your good.” (GW 258)

  4. We know too well that our condition is not a healthy one. We need to consider the Lord’s message to the church of the Laodicea to the testiment of the true witness: Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and need nothing: and knowest not that thout art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked. Every time I read these words it humbles me, and I feel like fasting and prayer that the Lord may have mercy on all of us and forgive us our lethargy. We do not hear the regrets of some of our most devoted people because of the coldness and the worldly tenencies which aare too obvious among us as a people it is to be noted that the Lord does not charge the Laodicean with teaching false docrines, but His complaint is that we hold unto the form of the truth while neglecting our spiritual life.We are charged with being destitute of the things of the spirit. If you are in doubt come to the midweek prayer meeting, and you will have some evdence that we are in a backslidden condition. Only a handful of people comes to prayer meeting at all. We need a revival and a reformation to restore the spiritual life that once characterized the remnant people of God

  5. It is hard to believe that we don’t see miracles. Maybe we are not looking. We need to expect great things from the Lord and we will get them. Maybe not in quite the way we expect, but if we walk according to His will, we can have miracles every day. There are miracles that He is waiting to bestow, all we have to do is to accept them, not even asking if it is His will, if He has told us in His word that He gives them to us.
    Victory over sin, for example – we claim the promise that He gives us the victory. We believe that He does not lie, we KNOW we have it so we thank Him for the victory. When we do this we will live the victorious life. When the temptation comes again we will not debate it in our minds, but confidently know that ve no longer practice that sin and go on to something else, without paying any attention to that temptataion that so easily tripped us in the past, because Christ has given us the miracle of victory.

  6. When the Son of man comes, shall He find FAITH on the earth? Luke 18:8
    For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him. 2 Chron. 16:9
    Lack of miracles is no lack on God’s part. He very much wants to show us Who He is and What He can do for His dearly loved children. As previously stated, lack of faith, lack of consecration, lack of perseverance limits divine intervention.
