Miracles come to those who have faith

In 2 Nephi 26 we learn that God manifests "himself unto all those who believe in him, by the power of the Holy Ghost; yea, unto every nation, kindred, tongue, and people, working mighty miracles, signs, and wonders, among the children of men according to their faith. " (2 Ne 26: 13)

This scripture teaches us that God will work miracles for every person or nation according to their faith. We must have faith to receive miracles.

Elder Spencer W. Kimball said, "We do have miracles today—beyond imagination! ... What kinds of miracles do we have? All kinds—revelations, visions, tongues, healings, special guidance and direction, evil spirits cast out. Where are they recorded? In the records of the Church, in journals, in news and magazine articles and in the minds and memories of many people."

Elder Oaks taught: "[T]he Lord works miracles in response to the faith of His children. No denomination—not even the restored Church—has a monopoly on the blessings of the Lord. He loves and blesses all of His children." Any person with faith in Jesus Christ can experience a miracle.

God does not always perform miracles when we ask for them. He knows everything and will only allow miracles to happen when they are best for us. When we ask for miracles, we should ask humbly and in faith. We know Heavenly Father can perform miracles. He will perform miracles when it's best for us.

Miracles can happen when we have faith. I come to Primary so that my faith will grow. I love Heavenly Father and am grateful for His miracles.
