If you recovered from a serious illness for a reason we could not comprehend , does it mean a super-natural miracle?. It could have just meant that while our understanding of biology is extensive it is not complete.
Even now we discover seemingly unrelated factors which do somehow influence health.And it might also be that the person who claimed it was a miracle did not understood the proper reason for the recovery which someone else in the field could have.
There is also another problem with this "miracle healing".I will explain with an example. Near the place I live while people were getting rehabilated from the after-effects of the tsunami there come some rich american evingalists who began preaching in their brief visit that the persons who were saved owed their life to the grace of Jesus.
Now see the fallacy here. Does this mean that God hated the persons who died. It is not as if only the most good or most holy of the persons get saved.
Or take this example husband falls sick the wife prays to God the husband recovers. The recovery is attributed to the sincere faith and prayer of the wife. Another family the same episode happens so this time the wife did not pray sincerely enough??.
Of course all these might be attributed to the undecodable will of God which is the same as saying it is random.
