Metropolitan Anthony (Pakanich)....MIRACLES...

; "....Miracles are secondary to our faith: that is, miracles are not there for us to believe, but if we believe sincerely, God performs miracles in our lives, which one needs only to spot. If the person’s spiritual eye is not clouded (Matthew 6:22-23), they see not a chain of accidents or of their victories and defeats, but God acting miraculously in their life. If the person’s faith is weak, then God’s mighty works will not be revealed in their life (Matthew 13:58). 

All this is not theoretical calculations, but the realities of life in Christ: for example, as a lot of intellectual powers are spent both on evidence for the existence of God and its refutation. A person living in Christ neither requires this evidence, nor looks for miracles (1 Corinthians 1:22): God is always present in their life, always responds to their prayer, constantly showing His miracles in the life of such a person.  

Therefore, a true believer does not seek miracles, but leads “a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence” (1 Timothy 2:2), knowing that it will end with the greatest miracle: the raising from the dead (John 6:40)....."

---- Metropolitan Anthony (Pakanich)
