What is the Spiritual Gift of Miracles?:

Like the gift of healing the spiritual gift of miracles reveals God's power through individuals. We see this gift in action throughout the bible. For instance, Jesus turns water into wine. Demons are cast out. Jesus walks on water and feeds the 5,000. Paul healed the sick. Those with this gift expect God to work miracles, signs, and wonders. However, this gift can also be abused. Some people think anyone can be given this gift, but it was rarely bestowed in the Bible. Others use miracles as an excuse. They will only believe if they see a miracle. Even others claim to have the gift of miracles in order to lift themselves up on a pedestal or even to con others. As people we can also fall into idolizing those who have the gift of miracles. Yet when this gift is bestowed, or when it is seen in action, it is a wonderful way to reveal God to others.

Is the Gift of Miracles My Spiritual Gift?:

Ask yourself the following questions. If you answer "yes" to many of them, then you may have the spiritual gift of miracles:

  • Are you someone who thinks there is no barrier and no boundary to the things God can do in our world?
  • Have you ever seen a miracle such as a healing or exorcism?
  • Do you find yourself loving and believing in God more when you hear of miracles that occurred?
  • Are you drawn to the stories in the Bible describing God's miracles and how it reveals Him to others?
