Miracles remind us that nothing is too hard for God. It's in the Bible, Exodus 14:21-22, TLB. "Meanwhile, Moses stretched his rod over the sea, and the Lord opened up a path through the sea, with walls of water on each side; and a strong east wind blew all that night, drying the sea bottom. So the people of Israel walked through the sea on dry ground!"
Miracles focused attention on Jesus' power and divinity. It's in the Bible, John 2:11, TLB. "This miracle at Cana in Galilee was Jesus' first public demonstration of His heaven-sent power. And His disciples believed that He really was the Messiah."
The miraculous never cancels the need for personal faith. It's in the Bible, John 20:29-31, TLB. "Then Jesus told him, 'You believe because you have seen Me. But blessed are those who haven't seen Me and believe anyway.' Jesus’ disciples saw Him do many other miracles besides the ones told about in this book, but these are recorded so that you will believe that He is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that believing in Him you will have life."
Miracles validated the ministry of the early church. It's in the Bible, Acts 5:16, TLB. "And crowds came in from the Jerusalem suburbs, bringing their sick folk and those possessed by demons; and every one of them was healed."
While miracles are a sign of God's ministry, one needs to be alert, for Satan can perform miracles too. It's in the Bible, Revelation 16:14, NIV. "They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle of the great day of God Almighty."
