Are you overcome with amazement?

What would you do if you saw a genuine miracle? A twelve-year-old girl had died, but Jesus raised her from the dead:

Immediately the girl arose and walked, for she was twelve years of age. And they were overcome with great amazement (Mark 5.42).

That is a biblical miracle. People call many things miracles today, but biblical miracles happened rarely and they were temporary suspensions of natural laws. Although death was not a part of the original creation, it is now very much a natural law. You live, you die, and you stay dead until the day of the great resurrection, which is yet future. However, the Son of God can suspend those laws if He so desires, and He did in this case that He might raise the girl from the dead. That would be amazing to see.
