Do Miracles still happen?

MIRACLES: supernatural event that has NO human explanation
: God's temporary suspension of the law of nature to intervene directly into human
affairs to bring about the fulfillment of a special and divine purpose

CRITERIA for a miracle:
- deliberate intervention of God
- unexplainable
-temporary suspension of the laws of nature
- has a divine purpose

When and How of miracles:
- God can perform miracles anytime, but He doesn't do it all the time
- To authenticate His people and leaders
- Seldom performed for personal enjoyment
- Ultimately, it is done to direct people to Him

How we should respond:
-We must put our faith in God and His character, rather than miracles.
- Let us trust in Him because it is God who knows what is best for us.
