You’ve probably heard the saying, “I don’t believe in miracles.” But what does that mean, exactly? For some people, it might mean they don’t believe that God intervenes in our lives in miraculous ways. But for others, it could mean they don’t believe in the possibility of miracles at all.
Where do you stand on miracles? Do you believe they still happen today? In this article, we’ll explore what the Bible has to say about miracles and look at some of the most famous miracles from Scripture. We’ll also consider why miracles might be important and how they can impact our lives.

When most people think of miracles, they think of biblical stories—of parting seas and healing the sick. But what does the Bible actually say about miracles?
The Bible defines a miracle as “a sign or wonder, an event that is beyond the power of nature or human beings to perform.” In other words, a miracle is something that can only be done by God. It’s a way for Him to show His power and sovereignty over creation.
But the Bible is clear that everyone can perform miracles. Those who have been given empowered by the Spirit of God can do them. This is why Jesus performed miracles during His time on Earth—He had been given the power of the Holy Spirit at His baptism by His Father in Heaven.
So what does this mean for us today? Simply put, it means that we should never try to perform miracles on our own. We should only do them if we’ve been given specific instructions by God to do so by the Holy Spirit.
Examining the Role of Miracles in the Bible
The Bible is filled with accounts of miracles. From turning water into wine to healing the sick, Jesus and his disciples were no strangers to the miraculous. But do these stories have anything to say to us today?
Many people believe that miracles still happen today. They might say that they’ve witnessed a miracle themselves or that they know someone who has been healed or had some other kind of supernatural experience.
Others are more skeptical and believe that miracles only happened in the Bible times and that there’s no such thing as a miracle happening today.
What does the Bible say about miracles? That’s a question that people have been asking for centuries and one that has been fully answered. If you do your research, both the scriptures and church history, only those that choose to be skeptics would believe miracles are not for today.
The Power of God in Miracles
When most people think about miracles, they think about the power of God. And rightly so—God is the one who performs miracles. But what does that mean for us today?
There’s no question that the power of God is at work in miracles. He is the one who performs them, and He is always in control. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t be a part of His work. In fact, it’s through our cooperation with Him that miracles happen.
We see this throughout the Bible. When God called Moses to lead His people out of Egypt, Moses didn’t hesitate to answer. He knew that it was only through God’s power that anything would be possible. And we see the same thing happen time and again in the Bible. When God’s people come together and put their trust in Him, there’s nothing He can’t do.
How Does Jesus Demonstrate Miracles Today?
The Bible is filled with stories of miracles that Jesus performed in ancient times.
The Bible does tell us that God can still perform miraculous works today, but it mostly emphasizes that Jesus works through people and our faith to demonstrate those miracles. We need to have faith that God will work through us and others to bring about the miracles we seek.
Jesus provides a great example of this by healing the sick, casting out demons, bringing sight to the blind, and even raising people from the dead. When we see these examples, it helps us to have faith that Jesus can still work through us in miraculous ways—we just need to believe.
The Bible says in Hebrews 13:8 that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. This means that he is still working in miracles today, just as he did in ancient times. All we need to do is have faith that he will work through us to perform them.
A Closer Look at the Holy Spirit and Miracles
The Bible speaks a lot about the power of the Holy Spirit, and we know that He is a miraculous being. He still performs many miracles today.
When Jesus Christ left the earth, He promised that the presence of the Holy Spirit would always be with us. The Spirit can be described as God’s power that acts upon people and in creation – something that we need in our lives.
We see this power at work in these New Testament stories where people are healed by touching a piece of clothing, simply by hearing a person pray, or by just drawing near to Jesus. In John 14:12, Jesus says, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these.” That shows us that Christ is still at work today, and He’s still doing miracles.
Believing in Miracles Today
Believing in miracles today is a choice that you have to make. The Bible encourages us to look for signs, wonders and miracles, while also emphasizing faith as the root of believing in these miracles.
Miracles are an expression of God’s power and love. They are not just for the saints of old but for all of us today. Miracles can happen in our lives if we have faith—if we open ourselves up to God and let Him work through us. We may not be able to see it at the moment, but God works in mysterious ways. So don’t be afraid to believe – He could be working a miracle right now!
What does the Bible say about miracles today? In short, the Bible teaches that miracles still happen today and that God is still active in the world. Jesus said that miracles would continue until the end of time, and the Holy Spirit is still working miracles today. If you want to see a miracle, you can pray and ask God to show you His power.
