"The signs of a true apostle were performed among you in all patience, with signs and wonders and mighty works." 2 Corinthians 12:12
During the ministries of Elijah and Elisha the Hebrews witnessed a rash of miracles, possibly more than during any other period in the nation's history. The preponderance of these took place among the ten northern tribes of the divided kingdom. Why God showered His people with this season of miracles is a matter of conjecture, but one thing we do know. The Northern Kingdom of Israel had no good kings. Although the leadership was bad, the people had no excuse in following the practices of pagan religions. God manifested His power mightily in their midst for all to see. The miracles, therefore, became for the people either an anchor in the midst of unbelief, or a testimony of God's power that would later judge them.
Miracles generally appear at critical moments in the history of God's people, such as the Exodus and the life of our Lord. Paul notes that miracles accompanied the expansion of the early church, authenticating the message of the apostles. There is something appealing about the thought of being privy to God's miracles. People travel great distances at great expense when they suspect that His miraculous works are evident. There may be times when your heart longs for outward manifestations of His power. Remember, if they are for you, you are asking Him to let you walk by sight rather than faith, and the degree that He shows Himself mighty on your behalf, you will be that much more accountable in the day of judgment.
Who are you as a child of God? Miracle seeker or Miracle follower. We are at the last day, many shall be deceived with signs and wonders in the name of Jesus. Why then God perform miracles.
1. To proof His Supremacy.
2. To show that all things are under His control.
3. To draw men to Himself and keep the from destruction.
5. To challenge the unbelievers to change their mind set.
What situation are you that want you to stop serving God, Brethren it won't be too later for us to see our Lord face to face and behold his glory. Don't give up your miracle is on the way.
