Does God Still Perform Miracles?

Psalm 77:6-7, 10-11,
My heart... asked:
"Will the Lord reject forever?
Will he never show his favor again?..
'Has his unfailing love vanished forever?"

Then I thought, "To this i will appeal; the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand. i will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, i will remember your miracles of long ago....

This is David?!? This is the one who slayed tens of thousands, who defeated Goliath? Crying out to see if God will still perform miracles?! Having to look back to the plagues, the Red Sea, Joshua and the wall, to see that God still does miracles?!

I forget...
He didn't know of the miracles to come! The visions of the prophets, the miracles of Jesus and his miracles, and the power of the early church!

We see that miracles surrounding David in history. It is almost humorous to think of David having to look back to remember God still performed miracles when we see them all around him in history and the scriptures.

Yet here we are today, some of us lost in our perspective asking the same questions. You know God is great... but is he really still performing miracles? What ever your situation is that may make you ask the same question as David, the answer is YES.

it was so great to meet a girl named Tes this last week at small group. She permeated the life of someone who had met our victorious Lord. She began to talk about her trip to Africa and how she saw people healed, demon's exorcised out of friends, and prophecy being spoken over people.

No matter whether you see it in first person or not, No matter whether God may seem distant from you, No matter whether you have current proven miracles right in front of you or not, rest assured that there ARE miracles being performed around you.

That, just as David was surrounded by historical miracles in the midst of his questioning, know that God is at work and that you are surrounded by past miracles and plenty of miracles to come.

David Goes on to profess:
Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God?"
You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples." 13-14
