Summary: Shows the elements of miracles and what’s needed to access them.
Miracles Do Happen
Mark 6: 37-42
37 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworthg of bread, and give them to eat? 38 † He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes. 39 And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. 40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties. 41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; ahes divided he among them all. 42 And they did all eat, and were filled.

Miracles are subjective to natural realities and are hence linked to the supernatural to make a miracle a miracle. Miracles have three essential elements that make them active 1) Miracles must be perceived by sensual perception 2) Miracles Must Be Genuine and above all 3) Miracles must have Divine purpose
Miracles are Perceived by Sensual Perception. Sensual perception is predicated upon what we can see, what we can hear, what we can smell, what we can taste, and what we can touch and are received by faith in God’s manifested power, faith in God is by far the uppermost in priority for seeking out your request for a miracle, bibles tells us in James that faith without work is dead, therefore, faith is conviction or persuasion with corresponding actions.
Miracles Must Be Genuine. Miracles do happen, however, they must be genuine, and that simply suggests that a genuine miracle is not something ordinary but something astonishing; for example, someone being diagnosed with cancer and has the evidence of it and has been given no hope and through various observations finds that the cancer is gone, this is a genuine miracle.
Miracles Must Have Divine Purpose. Miracles must have God’s divine purpose behind them bible tells us and they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. For this reason your miracles will give account to the kingdom and show forth the Glory of God.
Miracles do happen by: 1) Faith 2) Praise and 3) By the declaration of your heart, though you make deference to theses three fundamentals above you must be certain that you do not over dramatize your expectations by over emphasizing your actual needs, that’s to ask for more than you are in need of or biting off more than you can chew. With every blessing there comes a burden to follow.
Miracles do happen, maybe not when you want them but exactly when you need them, with God, we must understand that God works with time And his timing is not liken unto the timing of man, so wait patiently upon the lord never ceasing to pray but given him thanks in everything.
