“So the man of God said, ‘Where did it fall?’ And he showed him the place. So he cut off a stick, and threw it in there; and he made the iron float.” II Kings 6:6 NKJV
I asked Google if iron can float on water; he’s the first response I got: “A block of wood will float, but a lump of iron exactly the same size will sink. This is because a piece of wood of a certain size weighs less than the same volume of water, so wood floats on water. However, iron is much heavier than either wood or water.” Iron floating on water was a miracle!
The common Hebrew word for miracle is nes ( נס ), which translates as something that is raised up or elevated. So a miracle is an elevated and elevating event. It is something extraordinary that happens, where we see God’s hand clearly. In English, a miracle is defined as an event not explicable by natural or scientific laws; an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause. A miracle is an unusual or wonderful event that is believed to be caused by the power of God.
God did so many miracles in Bible days, both in the Old and New Testaments: John 20:30 says that a lot of them were not even recorded! Our God is a God of miracles, never to be limited by natural, scientific or any other known laws. For with God, nothing shall be impossible. Hallelujah!
