II. The Purpose of Miracles The Gift of miracles is not intended to set a person apart from everyone else Like all other gifts they are intended to Glorify God, Expand His Kingdom, and Build Faith

Glorifying God:

John 11:4 NASB95 4 But when Jesus heard this, He said, “This sickness is not to end in death but for the glory of God so that the Son of God may be glorified by it.”

The story of Lazarus and how Jesus used the miracle to glorify God.

Advancing the Kingdom:

Acts 5:12–16 NASB95 12 At the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were taking place among the people; and they were all with one accord in Solomon’s portico. 13 But none of the rest dared to associate with them; however, the people held them in high esteem. 14 And all the more believers in the Lord, multitudes of men and women, were constantly added to their number, 15 to such an extent that they even carried the sick out into the streets and laid them on cots and pallets so that when Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on any one of them. 16 Also, the people from the cities in the vicinity of Jerusalem were coming together, bringing people who were sick or afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all being healed.

The apostles performed many signs and wonders, leading to the growth of the church.

Building Faith:

John 20:30–31 NASB95 30 Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.

The miracles of Jesus written so that people may believe.

III. Partnering with the Holy Spirit to Experience Miracles

Faith and Expectation:

Mark 11:22–24 NASB95 22 And Jesus answered saying to them, “Have faith in God. 23 “Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. 24 “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.

Importance of having faith and expecting God to move.

Obedience and Boldness:

Acts 4:29–30 NASB95 29 “And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence, 30 while You extend Your hand to heal, and signs and wonders take place through the name of Your holy servant Jesus.”

Praying for boldness to speak and for God to stretch out His hand to heal and perform signs and wonders.

Sensitivity to the Holy Spirit:

Romans 8:14 NASB95 14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

Being led by the Spirit of God.

IV. Hindrances to Experiencing Miracles

Lack of Faith:

Matthew 13:58 NASB95 58 And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.

Jesus could not do many miracles in His hometown because of their unbelief.

Sin and Disobedience:

Isaiah 59:2 NASB95 2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God,

And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.

Sin separates us from God.

Doubt and Fear:

James 1:6–8 NASB95 6 But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, 8 being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Doubting leads to instability and hinders receiving from God.

V. Steps to Cultivate the Gift of Miracles

Prayer and Fasting:

Matthew 17:21 NASB95 21 “But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

Some miracles require prayer and fasting.

Studying the Word:

Romans 10:17 NASB95 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

Active Service:

1 Corinthians 12:7 NASB95 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of Spirit for common good.

The manifestation of Spirit is given for common good, implying active involvement in serving others.

Encourage the congregation to seek a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit. Pray for a fresh infilling of Holy Spirit and release of gift of miracles.

Testimonies and Sharing:

Invite individuals to share testimonies of miracles they have experienced or witnessed to build faith and expectation in congregation.
