Does God Get Tired of Doing Miracles?
Dr. Timothy Hoflund

Author requests article critique
As Jerry Williams declared in a Summit Meeting, “Our God breathes out stars!” So to ask the question “does God get tired of doing miracles?” is really a pretty ridiculous question! Why? Because what is a miracle to us is just God being normal!!!
Yet, things happen in our lives that put us in the situation of needing a miracle and we hesitate going to God “again” because we have gone to Him so many times needing a miracle that we begin to feel like “He must be getting tired of me always needing Him to do something special, even spectacular, for us!”
Have you ever approached God with a prayer something like: “Lord, I know that I have called upon you so many times and I really hate to bother You again, but …”, well, have you? Or have you ever felt like you were somehow imposing upon God when you need to ask Him for something and so you try a stupid bargaining technique thinking that this will “sway” Him to perform the miracle you need at the time so you pray something like “God if you’ll do this one thing for me, I’ll try to not trouble You again for anything else!”, well, have you?
WHY? Why do we think that God is going to somehow get impatient with our needs, and especially coming to Him for things that are so huge that it is totally beyond our ability to get it done so we ask Him do what can only be called a miracle?
GOD IS GOD! He is nothing like us yet we think of Him, we perceive Him, in the dimension of being human, maybe a “super human” but still a human with human limitations and human issues. We don’t really take God at His Word to “cast ALL our care upon Him” because for some reason or other we think that He will at some point surely tire of us needing Him so desperately! WRONG!!!
That must be one reason why Jesus declared: “If you then being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father give good things to them that ask Him?”
Does God get “tired” of doing miracles? That is like asking “Does God get tired of being God?” You see, everything that is just a “normal action” for God is a total miracle to us! Think about it for a moment: If God were to get hungry for a steak dinner and there were none available, He would simply speak “steak dinner” and He would instantly have before Him, what would seem to us, a feast! Perhaps that is why He declared through the Psalms that if He were hungry He would not tell us!
Another thought is this, if we feel as though we need to assure God that we will try to not disturb Him again for another miracle is like telling God that we will try to not ask Him to be Himself! For God is as God does!
But much more than all of this … we need to know that God wants us to know Him as FATHER! And FATHER happens to be GOD - - Who breathes stars into the universe!
Let us never be afraid to ask God to be what He wants to be to us - - FATHER! And let us never fear that our FATHER tires of loving His children - - US! Remember too, how will the lost souls in your world ever know that our Heavenly Father is TRULY GOD if we prohibit God from being Himself and from doing what only He can do, MIRACLES! Remember, it was by miracles that the message of Jesus was confirmed among the Jews of His earthly walk … and miracles still confirm the message of Jesus of OUR earthly walk!
