Most of us never experience a visit from an angel plainly declaring how God is about to do a miracle in our lives. If God does a miracle on our behalf, we are witnesses of His glory. And what a blessing that is!
One of the most well known miracles of all time is the miracle of Jesus’ birth. It’s one that’s for the benefit of all mankind. Sin separates us from God, but He made it possible for us to be with Him again by sending Jesus to earth.
Jesus took on human form, was supernaturally born to the virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life. He took the punishment for our sins, dying in our place, because of His selfless love for us.
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 NLT
That free gift is enough proof from a miracle-working God that He loves us and wants to be with us. But He didn’t stop there. He is the same God that performs miracles today.
God performed miracles in my life, and I love to hear how He did the same for others. When He moves through detailed circumstances in our lives it’s a manifestation of His love for us.
It also leaves us in awe as we see Him glorified through the mighty working of His power.
Since Almighty God still does miracles today, I wanted to hear more stories and share them here for our encouragement. I asked some other bloggers if they would share posts or stories of how God moved this way in their lives.
We aren’t more important or special than anyone else. God moved through our simple everyday lives. There’s no other explanation other than He is God. These miracles are reminders of His goodness. So through this post we will:
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples! Psalm 96:3 ESV

Miracles God Did in My Life
I tend to think either the devil tried to kill me a few times when I was little or else I just wasn’t too smart. I’ll go with the first one. 😉 I wrote a mini-series explaining three of these instances where God saved my life. If one small detail in any of the stories hadn’t happened the way they did, I wouldn’t be writing this today. All I can say is, thank you God! Check out the You Are Here for a Reason mini-series. Quick links below.
Rachel Schmoyer from Read the Hard Parts
I shed a few happy tears at the end of this post. God moved in exact details. I’m still wondering if that could have been an angel?

A story of God in the details and how He comes to comfort at just the right moment. He hears. Always.

A surprising sign and wonder currently happening. I love the balance Leah brings out in this post.

9. Julie wrote out “A Miracle Heard” for us here:
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
The room was dimly lit. About thirty of us sat in a wide circle of plastic chairs. The woman pastor leading the group provided a layman’s description of meditative prayer.
Did God know I needed it simple to follow?
Letting my eyes fall shut, concern crept up the back of my neck. Clearing my mind was not easy. I am a planner, a thinker, a child of wonder. The cross. That’s what I can focus on.
Almost instantly the rabbit trails disappeared. It was if God erased a lifetime of worry, of plans, and those thoughts you think you so desperately need.
His truth repeated and seeped, filled the deep crevices of old pain. No stiffness, no worries or shivering … well until just a bit later.
Out of nowhere, a voice spoke to me. “NO MORE ALCOHOL”.
My eyes opened in a slight panic. All around, women talked quietly in a room now bright with lights.
Was I in a trance? I had an urge to peek under my chair to see if someone put a recording or a talking doll there.
My soul knew the truth but dare not whisper. Self-medicative chains clanked on the floor.
A problem I didn’t think I had.
A legacy broken.
A heart healed.
A life saved.
Sara Payne from Uncommon Grace
Sometimes God takes us into difficult circumstances and then shows us how He orchestrated it as an incredible blessing. A heart-touching story!

Tammy Dunlap from Grandma Mary Martha
This beautiful poem-story shows God’s hand over our lives through the years and working everything to our good.
11. The Back Story
Myrtrude Hall featured on KellyRBaker.com
In this post, I shared brief accounts of miracles my grandma experienced in three areas: health, financial, protection. It’s the first post in the “power of God” series I published last spring. In it we explore experiencing the miraculous power of God firsthand like Moses, Elijah, or Peter.
Your Turn to Share Miracles
God is so amazing! We hope you think so too after reading these. May we turn our hearts ever torward Him and thrive in His matchless love.
Now it’s your turn. What miracles have God done in your life or the life of someone you know?
