Astounding Bible Miracles
Be astounded as we look back to some of the famous Bible miracles signs and wonders you probably heard when you were a child. Do you still remember how Abraham and Sarah conceived at old age? Genesis 21:2 (KJV) says “For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him”. Through their son, Isaac, God established His everlasting covenant even for the descendants after him. It was the start of even greater Bible miracles which are known until today.

Miracles in the Bible About Food
The Bible miracles come in different scenarios and results. Perhaps some of the most notable miracles recorded in the Bible is related to food. In Exodus 16, it talks about the Bread from Heaven, also known as “Manna”. It is an edible substance that God provided to the Israelites during their time in the desert. It was a miraculous provision from God, food falling down from heaven in a desert. The Bible didn’t call if flour and it is probably nothing like flour or food known to man. The Israelites ate this substance for a couple of days.
There are other stories in the Bible that talks about the miraculous provisions from God. In 1 Kings 17, the prophet Elijah ate meat and bread that was delivered by ravens as commanded by God. In the same chapter, Elijah prompted a miracle to a widow that only had a handful of flour and a little oil in a jug. Elijah blessed the widow with flour and a jug of oil that would never be empty as he stayed with her household for many days.
