Gift of the Spirit: Working of Miracles
In the Bible, we see numerous accounts of God performing miracles through his servants. The working of miracles is a powerful gift of the Holy Spirit that empowers believers to perform extraordinary acts that defy the laws of nature.
One example of the working of miracles is found in the book of Exodus when God used Moses to part the Red Sea, allowing the Israelites to escape from the pursuing Egyptian army. Another example is when Elijah prayed and fire came down from heaven, consuming a water-soaked altar and proving the superiority of the God of Israel over the false gods of the prophets of Baal.
The working of miracles is not limited to the Old Testament. In the New Testament, we see Jesus performing many miracles, such as healing the sick, feeding the multitudes with a few loaves and fishes, and even raising the dead. The apostles also performed many miracles, such as healing the lame and the blind and even raising the dead.
We have access to this same power through the Holy Ghost. When we operate in faith and obedience to God, we can see extraordinary things happen through the working of miracles. It is important to remember that these miracles are not done for our own glory, but for the glory of God and the advancement of his kingdom.
Let us not underestimate the power of the Holy Ghost and the working of miracles. Let us believe and trust in God’s ability to do the impossible, and let us be willing vessels for him to work through.
