“Why don’t miracles happen today like they did in Christ’s time?” New Era, July 2016, 41
Why don’t miracles happen today like they did in Christ’s time?
The Savior’s miracles were “divine acts” as well as “part of the divine teaching” (Bible Dictionary, “Miracles”). Healing and other miracles are still found in the Church today, though they aren’t always dramatic and aren’t always spoken of publicly because those who experience them hold them sacred. You may want to look for miracles in your life or the lives of your family members or ancestors. Though we may desire miracles, we should remember that Heavenly Father answers in His time and in His own way.
Miracles are part of the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are a sign that faith is on the earth (see Ether 12:12), and they are a gift of the Spirit (see D&C 46:21).
