If God exists, then miracles are possible. God would be all-powerful and able to work miracles. Nature is then open to the possibility of miracles. For if it is dependent on God for its existence, it is also dependent on him for whatever else he may want to do in it.

It doesn't matter whether you believe in God or not. If something miraculous happens, you cannot deny it. Per se, I remember when I was on my way home from work when I saw this 10-12 year old girl walking across a intersection (without looking both ways) when a semi was coming straight towards her at about 55-70 mph and stopped dead on inches before hitting her. I mean instantly, not slowed down at all. NO WAY was it just luck. Someone was watching over her. I was very thankful. Nobody got hurt.
By the very power of God Himself. He gives us many true miracles as signs to come and follow Him, yet we still reject Him. Only God can bring about a real miracle. What Christian miracles have occurred? They are too numerous to count. To begin, all miracles of Jesus are considered Christian miracles, because He is the founder of our faith. These miracles include the multiplication of the loaves, the turning of water into wine at the wedding feast at Cana, the raising of Lazarus from the dead, and Jesus' own Resurrection. Jesus gave sight to the blind and hearing to the deaf. He cured lepers and cripples. The Gospels are full of His miracles. There have been many miracles since Jesus ascended into heaven, such as miracles of healing. The bodies of dead saints have been found incorrupt hundreds of years after their deaths. (My answer continues in the comments)
Quick. Think of something that isn't possible. Stop right there!!! See now, either you thought of something that truly isn't possible, and it will never be done, or you thought of some weak attempt at "impossible" that may be slightly more difficult than tripping but still more than unlikely. Or you disingenuously thought of some way to trick people into thinking you did something that isn't possible. How does THAT prove your God?
The word "miracle" has become a very loosely-interperated word. What I mean by "miracle" is something that totally contradicts natural laws, like some one returning from the grave, impossible to man. So, how are miracles possible? Well, there has to be an all-powerful being involved, namely God. God is not bound by natural laws. He made them, He can break them. God can raise a person from the dead. He can split a sea into two and let some one walk across on dry land. He can heal the blind, He can make the lame walk. He can throw bread down from heaven. In Africa, people have limbs growing back today! This cannot be explained by science. Miracles even happen today.
Define miracle. In the time of Christ, a miracle was walking on water or turning a jug of water into wine. Today a miracle could be finally getting that job and being able to provide for your family. Who is to say that they don't happen?
Miracles do still happen. A miracle is defined as a surprising welcome that isn't explained by natural or scientific law. So, in today's time, just getting or having a job is a miracle to a lot of people. Just always be thankful for them.
miracles are possible and it is so easy to do miraculous thing just one thing u have to do to perform a miracle is that believe that all power is inside u just try to talk to your soul afterwards we will call your work miraculous and you say it your habit
Miracles are possible because of human ignorance. When we do not understand something, we assume a supernatural/mysterious/holy/miraculous explanation. That's why these thing have become rarer as our knowledge has grown.
It is good to keep in mind that their attitude is that if it is not understandable and explainable to us as far as we discern these laws,it cannot happen.However, capable scientists are becoming increasingly cautious about saying that a certain thing is impossible. Professor John R.Brobeck of the University of Pennsylvania stated: “A scientist is no longer able to say honestly something is impossible.He can only say it is improbable. But he may be able to say something is impossible to explain in terms of our present knowledge. Science cannot say that all properties of matter and all forms of energy are now known.For a miracle one thing that needs to be added is a source of energy unknown to us in our biological and physiological sciences. In our Scriptures this source of energy is identified as the power of God.”(Time, July 4, 1955)Since this statement was made, further scientific development has made it more emphatic.Scientists do not fully understand the properties of heat, light,atomic and nuclear action,electricity, or any of the forms of matter under even normal conditions.Even more deficient is their understanding of these properties under unusual or abnormal conditions.
The only way, I want a miracle to be possible, is through Jesus Christ; better nothing from GOD, then something from somewhere else. I have been saved from death, many times, and it's always by HIS GRACE. This is an experience, I've had at my work place. I was working as an Master Electrician, for an Electronic Factory, It was noon, the middle of the day. I was walking down the middle of an aisle, when the firmament of the heavens, spun into a pillar and split into a curtain and drew up, revealing Jesus Christ, seated, intently looking at me, as six others approach HIM, and gathered behind HIM, dressed in "WHITE GOWNS", the Glory of God all around them, they smiled, and the heavens closed as they had opened."
