Miracles

Many people define a miracle as a of physical manifestation of God.    It is God's will to help you in the physical realm, but the physical realm ultimately can change and is therefore going to cease to exist, so He would not be helping you as much as if He helped you in area(s) that are more lasting.   Healing the misunderstanding you have about Who He Is is far more helpful to you in the long run than healing your physical body.   God would help you understand  Who He IS. If you do not understand  Who HE IS,  you will struggle believing He wants to help you in the physical realm. Once you understand  Who He Is, you will naturally understand He wants to help you in other area(s).

Proverbs 18:14 The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness, But who can bear a broken spirit?
 
 
It is a greater miracle (more miraculous ) for someone who previously did not understand  Who He IS to understand  Who He Is  than it is for someone to be brought back to life once they have died. 

Luke 16: 29-31 Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them. “ ‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent. “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’ ”


It is a greater miracle (more miraculous ) for someone who previously could not  understand   Who He IS to understand  Who He Is  than it is for God to be observed in physical form on the earth. 
 
John 20:26- 29 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe. Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
 


It is a greater miracle (more miraculous) for someone who previously struggled representing Who He Is to  represent Who He Is than it is for them to preform miracles. 

Matthew 7: 21-23 Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

It is a greater miracle (more miraculous) for someone to repent of misrepresenting Who He Is  and in turn represent Who He Is than it is to be healed physically. 

Matthew 11:23 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted to the heavens? No, you will go down to Hades. For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day.

It is a greater miracle (more miraculous) for someone to represent Who He Is than it is to preform miracles

Matthew 25:37-40 Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did itto one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

It is a greater miracle (more miraculous) for someone to represent Who He IS than it is to preform miracles

Acts 7:35-39

35 “This is the same Moses they had rejected with the words, ‘Who made you ruler and judge?’ He was sent to be their ruler and deliverer by God himself, through the angel who appeared to him in the bush. 36 He led them out of Egypt and performed wonders and signs in Egypt, at the Red Sea and for forty years in the wilderness.

37 “This is the Moses who told the Israelites, ‘God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your own people.’[h] 38 He was in the assembly in the wilderness, with the angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai, and with our ancestors; and he received living words to pass on to us.

39 “But our ancestors refused to obey him. Instead, they rejected him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt.
