Christian Songs About Miracles

By

In the New Testament, Jesus performed 37 miracles and we read them and tend to think of miracles in big terms like restoring sound to the deaf or raising the dead. I myself am guilty of doing just that. When I think of miracles, I immediately think of the miracle of my daughter. Results of normal pregnancy testing weren't quite right and no matter how many times they ran them, or other tests, the outcomes were the same. The medical recommendation was that we terminate the pregnancy. My husband and I just couldn't do that so we prayed for a miracle instead and we got one. She was born months later perfectly healthy with everything developed exactly as it should be. Having received such a huge miracle, I find it difficult to recognize that each morning that I wake up is a miracle itself. The "little miracles" in life are so every day that we tend to overlook them.

Today, whether the miracle you need is big or small, know that you're not alone in praying for God to provide and never forget that His faithfulness is great - even when we don't get exactly what we prayed for.

"God Of Miracles" - Planetshakers

Planetshakers - Pick It Up
Integrity/Columbia

From the song ...

You are God
You're the God of miracles
You're the God that makes me whole
And I'll worship
I will worship You

Reminding us that our God is the God who heals and forgives those of us who absolutely do not deserve it, "God Of Miracles" cuts right to the chase.

"I Need A Miracle" - Third Day

Third Day - Miracle
Essential Records

From the song ...

Well no matter who you are and no matter what you've done
There will come a time when you can't make it on your own
And in your hour of desperation
Know you're not the only one, praying
Lord above, I need a miracle

We've all been there; we've all faced that moment where something bad was happening and we were powerless to stop it. Third Day lead singer Mac Powell shares that "I Need A Miracle" was written after hearing stories that fans have shared about times when their music was the miracle that God used to save and change lives.

From the song ...

And I'm wide awake
And tonight I'm saved
In Your arms I'm singin' of
How You made me a miracle

Recognizing the blessings that come from tragedies is what Mark Stuart shares when he sings "Miracle."

"Miracle" - Marvin Sapp

Marvin Sapp - Diary Of A Psalmist
Verity Records

From the song ...

So don't you be discouraged, don't you be dismayed
for you've not been denied, it's only been delayed
It seems it may not be your turn in life
but don't you get discouraged, just stand in line

Marvin Sapp takes a different look at miracles in his song. Another tune we can all relate to, he sings about those times when you've asked God for a miracle and it didn't come right away.

"Miracle" - Sara Groves

Sara Groves - Invisible Empires
Fair Trade Services

From the song ...

Let's feel what we cannot feel
Know what we cannot know
Let's heal where we couldn't heal
Oh, it's a miracle, it's a miracle

Sara says that she wrote this song while watching good friends going through a divorce. It made her see the miracle of love and how hurt and anger can destroy it.

"Miracle Maker" - Kim Walker-Smith

Kim Walker-Smith - Still Believe (Live)
Jesus Culture

From the song ...

I'm waiting here for my life to change
When the waters stir You can rearrange me
Just one touch is all I need
I've nothing much but the wounds I feel
I've come to find the hand of the miracle man

If you are breathing and over the age of five, you have probably had times in your life when you have felt like you are nothing more than the wounds you carry around. Kim Walker Smith shares a powerful reminder with us here - we are children of the miracle man.

"Miracles" - Newsboys

newsboys - Born Again Miracles Edition
Inpop

From the song ...

I knew what I wanted to do but just like gravity's pull I always did the opposite
Life was a meaningless party, I started to fall into a bottomless hole
But then I got a miracle
Some people don't have a clue if all of this could be true
But take a look at me – I was blind but now I see...

This Newsboys song is about those smaller, daily miracles - the little things that happen in our lives.

"Miracles" - Newsong

Newsong - Arise My Love...Best Of Newsong
Benson Records

From the song ...

And I believe in miracles
I'm a miracle myself
And I believe the good Lord hears
The ones who cry for help
And after all that He has done for me
I believe, I do believe in miracles

Salvation - giving us eternal life and saving us from our own sin, as Newsong reminds us, is the greatest miracle of all.

"What Faith Can Do" - Kutless

Kutless - It Is Well
BEC Recordings

From the song ...

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do

Kutless lead singer Jon Micah Sumrall says that "What Faith Can Do" is about putting all of our hope and trust in God with the certainty that He is always faithful.
