FHE Lesson on Miracles – What Is a Miracle?

This FHE lesson on miracles helps us better understand what miracles are and how we can grow our faith in the awe-inspiring power of Jesus Christ.

Book-Of-Mormon-IconSm

Scripture

Mormon 9:15

O all ye that have imagined up unto yourselves a god who can do no miracles, I would ask of you, have all these things passed, of which I have spoken? Has the end come yet? Behold I say unto you, Nay; and God has not ceased to be a God of miracles.

Hymn

Now Let Us Rejoice | Hymn #3

1. Now let us rejoice in the day of salvation.
No longer as strangers on earth need we roam.
Good tidings are sounding to us and each nation,
And shortly the hour of redemption will come,

When all that was promised the Saints will be given,
And none will molest them from morn until ev’n,
And earth will appear as the Garden of Eden,
And Jesus will say to all Israel, “Come home.”

2. We’ll love one another and never dissemble
But cease to do evil and ever be one.
And when the ungodly are fearing and tremble,
We’ll watch for the day when the Savior will come,

When all that was promised the Saints will be given,
And none will molest them from morn until ev’n,
And earth will appear as the Garden of Eden,
And Jesus will say to all Israel, “Come home.”

3. In faith we’ll rely on the arm of Jehovah
To guide thru these last days of trouble and gloom,
And after the scourges and harvest are over,
We’ll rise with the just when the Savior doth come.

Then all that was promised the Saints will be given,
And they will be crown’d with the angels of heav’n,
And earth will appear as the Garden of Eden,
And Christ and his people will ever be one.

Lesson

For Children

Begin the lesson by asking: What is a miracle?

Read aloud: A miracle is an extraordinary event caused by the power of God. Examples of miracles include healing the sick and raising the dead. Miracles are an important part of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ask: Can you think of any miracles Jesus Christ performed?

Read aloud: Miracles are done through faith in Jesus and still happen today. Sometimes, like in the scriptures, we experience large miracles. Sometimes, we experience very small and personal miracles. Miracles are also done according to the will of God, so sometimes God’s answer is “no.”

Share a personal experience of a miracle in your life, large or small. If appropriate, you can ask if your child has experienced or witnessed a miracle.

Read aloud: We can grow in faith by looking for Jesus Christ in our everyday life. No matter what miracles may or may not be happening, we can see his hand if we take some time to stop and reflect.

Ask: How can we give more time to thinking about Jesus Christ?

Finish the lesson by sharing your testimony.

For Teens & Adults

Begin the lesson by asking everyone to spend a few scriptures searching for an example of a miracle. Ask them to consider what the scripture they chose teaches them about miracles. Gather everyone together and discuss.

Read aloud: The Guide to the Scriptures teaches us that a miracle is “an extraordinary event caused by the power of God” and is an “important element in the work of Jesus Christ.”

The scriptures are full of examples of these “extraordinary events.” Though we know that God has not ceased to be a God of miracles, we can often look at the simple events of our day-to-day lives and wonder what miracles look like for us.

Share a personal experience, as directed by the spirit, of a miracle in your life. Consider choosing an event that may not have seemed miraculous at first.

Ask: What are some ways miracles still happen today?

Read aloud: Faith is necessary in order for miracles to happen. When we have faith, we trust the Lord and his will. We know a miracle can happen and we know the Lord has a plan if the miracle we wanted does not occur. It also means we have faith that the Lord will be merciful because of our doubts and fears.

Ask: How can we build faith in miracles?

Finish the lesson by bearing your testimony.
