The gift of the working of miracles is a sovereign act of the Spirit of God. A miracle has no explanation other than the sovereign power of the Lord. God is not bound by His own laws. God acts as He will, either within or outside of what we understand to be His laws--either His natural laws or His supernatural. This gift is used to confirm the preaching of God's Word, to display His power and magnificence even to the raising of the dead and to the restoring of members (parts of a person's body) that have been lost or withered.
