miracles

Was Tim Tebow used by God to perform a miracle?

Over the past year or so, I’ve had a special fascination with miracles. The question on my mind was”Are there miracles happening today?” I was quick to answer this one with an”Absolute yes!”  Miracles are given to us everyday. I know a few people who have been healed and many others who’ve had prayers answered. But what I really wanted to know was “what kind of miracles are happening today and why don’t we hear more about them?”  I mean the kind of miracles that Jesus did, i.e. healing the blind and deaf, casting out demons, and raising the dead.

Jesus said that he did these things to show that he was who he said he was. He did these works so that people would believe him. However, I don’t recall Jesus ever debunking a skeptic. Those who chose not to believe that Jesus was the son of God in spite of what they saw were left to their own devices.

So why don’t we see more miracles today, or do they happen and we just don’t hear about it. Katie Woodward posted her story on youtube.

I was reading some of her comments and captured a brief conversation. I particularly liked the response she gave to one of her viewers about his situation.

So, did Tim Tebow’s action result in miracle? Was Katie healed because of her request of God? I don’t know. Tim has stood by his faith in Jesus year after year and has dealt with many challenges because of it. Tim and Katie both prayed.

One of the things that Jesus said was:

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. — Jn 14:12-13

Tim and Katie are Jesus followers and Jesus makes good on his promises.

If we desire a miracle, we must first ask God for it. It begins with a relationship and then comes the request: a prayer. But are our prayers being heard or hindered?  Pastor Darryl Robinson does a great job of answering this question.  It’s a long sermon, but if we’re looking for an answer to a prayer I believe Darryl’s message can help.
