What is God's Purpose in Miracles? . Psalm 66:6

God Loves You
Do miracles make sense? Is it reasonable to believe that God could reach down and manipulate the creation he made, and if so why?

"He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot- come let us rejoice in him. He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations- let not the rebellious rise up against him." Psalm 66: 6, 7. NIV.

This verse speaks of the power of God. As Creator he has power over what he created. If he made the oceans then he can move them around, if he made mountains then he can cast them into the sea. Therefore miracles are logical.

Not only does God rule, he rules forever; He will never be overthrown, voted out or retire. He rules with irresistible power. He is not bound by any higher authority that could restrict his actions and forbid miracles.

Miracles are purposeful; they cause us to know and acknowledge The Lord and to worship him. God sees the affairs of all mankind from small individuals to great nations. Miracles are a warning to the rebellious that to rebel is foolish- no one can oppose the awesome power of the Almighty.

Some suggest this as a time when God does to not show his power through miracles. We should still be in awe of him because even if he chooses to not do them that he could do them if he should choose to.

God is working in individuals with miracles of intimacy such as the miracle of a changed heart, a healed marriage, or of love restored. We are in the time when God is speaking in the "Still Small Voice," a voice that we may hear in our hearts as a prompting or assurance.

We are all invited to come to God, and those who come to God will rejoice in him. Whatever way we experience God, be it in powerful miracles or the "still small voice"* we should respond with worship; because that is what happens when we ponder what The Lord has done and to consider the great miracles in the Bible and the great miracles we see all around us.

He is big enough to move mountains, and still small enough to whisper with love into our hearts. For the awesome majestic Lord of the universe to speak to lowly, temporary, and weak human beings is perhaps one of the most remarkable miracles ever.
