Miracles
 
  The miracles of our Lord are peculiarly eminent above the lying wonders of demons, in that they were not made out of vain ostentation of power, and to raise unprofitable amazement; but for the real benefit and advantage of men, by feeding the hungry, healing all sorts of diseases, ejecting of devils, and reviving the dead.
Richard Bentley.

  A miracle is a work exceeding the power of any created agent, consequently being an effect of the divine omnipotence.
