7 Of The Best Bible Verses About Miracles

by Crystal McDowell · Print Print · Email Email

Miracles are defined by the extraordinary measure that God reveals Himself to us. Miracles remind us that God doesn’t depend on the elements of nature or man’s abilities in order to do the impossible. We trust that God will work miracles in our lives in His timing and purpose. Read the 7 best Bible verses about miracles:

Miracle #1) An elderly couple having a baby. (Genesis 12-21)

“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

In Genesis 12 God told Abraham to move away to another land where He would bless and make a great nation through him. Abraham was 75 years old when he started out in faith and twenty-five years later his son, Isaac, was born to Sarah. In between those years, there were a lot of good and bad decisions on the part of Abraham and Sarah; however, God still honored His promise to do the impossible. Even when we make wrong choices, our Lord can still work the miraculous in His perfect timing.

Miracle #2) A nation of people walking across an ocean bed with water on both sides. (Exodus 12-14)

“He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes” (Deuteronomy 10:21).

Many of us struggle with leading our families in the right path towards God. How much more difficult it was for Moses to lead the Israelites to the Promised Land? When the tribes of Israel were pursued by the Egyptian army from behind and an expansive ocean ahead—there could’ve been massive panic—except for God. Our Lord can handle the huge mountains, oceans, or storms that appear to block our way. We must trust in the God of miracles even when we can’t see our way ahead.

Miracle #3) A jar of flour and jug of oil staying full until a famine passed. (1 Kings 17)

“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27).

Elijah wasn’t directed by God to visit the richest family in the land, but to a poor widow. By faith she first prepared what she thought was her last meal for the prophet and the Lord blessed her with all the flour plus oil she would need to feed all three of them. Many times we are at a place where it seems like the last of everything we have is about to run out. It is in those times that we must trust the Lord to provide everything we need.

Miracle #4) A grown man healed of leprosy after dipping seven times in a river. (2 Kings 5)

“For I am the Lord, who heals you” (Exodus 15:26).

Naaman had a different expectation for his healing rather than dipping in the inferior Jordan River. However, after he followed Elisha’s instructions, his skin was miraculously smooth like that of a young child. The miracles that we seek from God may require us to do things that don’t seem convenient or make sense. However, if we seek the Lord in wisdom and in godly counsel—we will see the miraculous intervention we desire.

Miracle #5) Three men rescued out of a fiery furnace without even the smell of smoke. (Daniel 3)

“When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze” (Isaiah 43:2).

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego had no reservations about their loyalty to God even if it cost their lives. Most likely everyone around the furnace had the stench of smoke except the three men who were thrown into the furnace. The Lord has the ability to protect and keep those who put their trust in Him. The miraculous interventions we seek from our troubles will come through the mighty hand of God.

Miracle #6) Over five thousand people were fed from five loaves of bread and two fish. (Matthew 14, Mark 6, Luke 9, and John 6)

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen” (Ephesians 3:20-21).

The people listened intently to Jesus’ teaching so long that the disciples wanted to send them away to gather food. However Jesus had something else in mind with only 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish. Many times we look around at our meager resources and wonder how we are going to make it—just as the disciples did with Jesus. Yet our Lord will meet every one of our needs according to His miraculous abilities even using our puny provisions in a much greater way.

Miracle#7) A man raised from the dead three days after his funeral. (John 11)

“He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted” (Job 5:9).

When Jesus finally arrived, Martha was deep in grief and questioned His late arrival. Yet Jesus is never late, but rather God’s glory was revealed in Lazarus’ resurrection. Imagine the mixture of fear, shock, and joy that Lazarus’ family and friends must have felt! When we cry out to God for the impossible, we must cling to the truth of His power over life and death. When one person comes to know Jesus, the joy of being raised from the dead is no less miraculous and celebrated with the angels in heaven.

“There are three stages in the work of God: impossible, difficult, done.”
-James Hudson Taylor

Miracles still happen. Just because we don’t see people raised from the dead on a regular basis doesn’t mean that God isn’t still in the miracle business. The Lord receives glory from the miracles He does every day in our lives. We must continue to press Him in prayer for the miraculous and not settle so quickly into doubt, anxiety, or fear. Miracles will continue.
