The Beginning of Miracles
This, the first of His signs, Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and He revealed His glory, and His disciples believed in Him.
- John 2:11
Jesus' first miracle was to turn water into wine. What Jesus began is not finished; the Miracle-worker has never changed: "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8).
The last miracle did not end with the last apostle named in the Bible; for this to be true there would have to be a complete absence of miracles. Even one miracle would disprove this erroneous statement.
In Mark 16:15-20, Jesus confirmed that miracles are not special gifts for a few, but are for all believers. Those claiming that the age of miracles has ended deny the power of prayer. For God to hear and answer your prayer is a miracle.
You may feel that today you do not need a miracle. All of us stand in need of miracles every day. Every breath is a miracle. Every act of kindness is a miracle. Every time you forgive and receive forgiveness, it's a miracle. Every prayer is a miracle. Miracles are signs pointing to God. Expect God to act miraculously in every moment of your life.
When you pray, expect God to hear and answer your prayer. Healing is for today. Deliverance is for today. Signs and wonders are for today!
Jesus, open my eyes to the miracles You are doing every moment that I may glorify Your name and give You all honor and praise. Amen.
