How do we know if it is a true miracle?

The word miracle is difficult to define because it is used in so many different ways. A student may say that the passing of an exam was a miracle or the fact that a person survived an accident. Over the years, we have seen many who claim to be doing a miracle and those who do magic which seems to be quite miraculous. There are even those who call themselves Christians who claim to do miracles and end up being proven to be frauds. This is usually, if not always, the case with these, that what is done is proven to be a trick and outright fraud. Most magicians now admit to being illusionists who create a situation where something appears to be what it is not. In their book When Skeptics Ask, Geisler & Brooks define miracles using three words, power, wonder & sign. The power of the miracle comes from God who is beyond His creation; the miracle inspires awe or wonder in those who see it; and it is a sign that confirms the message or the messenger. Miracles are not to be used as a show to make money or gain notoriety. Miracles are to glorify God and do good on behalf of His people.
