There’s an old gospel song by Stuart Hamblen that says, “It is no secret what God can do.  What He's done for others, He'll do for you.”  This is a wonderful thought that is confirmed in the Word of God.

    There are accounts in the Bible of people being healed and raised from the dead.  There are also accounts of other miracles that Jesus performed.  Should we still expect those things to happen today? 

    The apostles performed miracles after Jesus returned to heaven, so we know they were not just performed by Jesus, they were also performed by ordinary men.   The gospel did not cease with the death of Jesus and neither did miracles.  

    Jesus died so that we would have the power to perform those same miracles.  We can expect to see everything that Jesus did while He was on this earth.

    In John 15:16, Jesus says, “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.” (NIV)  Jesus said ‘whatever we ask’.  If we ask for things that involve miracles and healings, we should expect to see them come to pass.
