Seen in this light it was a miracle of economic history that Europe was able to undertake so much higher a proportion of its expansion overseas, and secure a massive injection of resources and big markets without a commensurate growth in her numbers.
A wonderful event occurring in the physical world attributed to supernatural powers
A miracle is a wonderful and surprising event that is believed to be caused by God. Jesus's ability to perform miracles. Extraordinary event attributed to a supernatural power. Belief in miracles exists in all cultures and nearly all religions. The Upanishads assert that the experience of religious insight and transformation is the only "miracle" worth considering, but popular Hinduism attributes miraculous powers to the ascetic yogis. Confucianism had little room for miracles. Daoism, however, mingled with Chinese folk religion to produce a rich crop of miracles. Though Buddha Gautama deprecated his own miraculous powers as devoid of spiritual significance, accounts of his miraculous birth and life were later woven into his legend and into those of later Buddhist saints. Miracles are taken for granted throughout the Hebrew scriptures and were fairly common in the Greco-Roman world. The New Testament records miracles of healing and other wonders performed by Jesus. Miracles also attest to the holiness of Christian saints. Muhammad renounced miracles as a matter of principle (the Qurn was the great miracle), but his life was later invested with miraculous details. Muslim popular religion, particularly under the influence of Sufism, abounds in miracles and wonder-working saints
the change of mind that shifts our perception from the ego's world of sin, guilt, and fear, to the Holy Spirit's world of forgiveness; reverses projection by restoring to the mind its causative function, allowing us to choose again; transcends the laws of this world to reflect the laws of God; accomplished by our joining with the Holy Spirit or Jesus, being the means of healing our own and others' minds (Note -- not to be confused with the traditional understanding of miracles as changes in external phenomena )
a marvellous event manifesting a supernatural act of God any amazing or wonderful occurrence

A miracle is an out-of-the-ordinary direct and divine intervention in the world Examples would be the parting of the Red Sea, Jesus walking on water, the resurrection of Lazarus, etc Some hold that it is a violation of the natural order of physical laws Others maintain that there is no such violation upon God's part but only a natural manifestation of His work They are also known as powers and signs (Mark 9: 39; Acts 2: 22, 19: 11) and mighty works (John 10: 25-38) They are a manifestation of the power of God over nature (Josh 10: 12-14), animals (Num 22: 28), people (Gen 19: 26), and illness (2 Kings 5: 10-14) They are produced by God's power (Acts 15: 12), Christ's power (Matt 10: 1), and the Holy Spirit's power (Matt 12: 28)
A miracle drug or product does something that was thought almost impossible. a miracle drug that is said to be a cure for Aids and cancer
An event that contravenes the laws of nature Such events were not thought of as freaks but as signs of the action of God Thus, the miracle stories of the New Testament were used to "prove" the existence of God, the divinity of Jesus, the legitimacy of the church, etc They were at one time much more important to the argument between science and religion than they are today
If you say that a good event is a miracle, you mean that it is very surprising and unexpected. It is a miracle no one was killed
Specifically: An event or effect contrary to the established constitution and course of things, or a deviation from the known laws of nature; a supernatural event, or one transcending the ordinary laws by which the universe is governed
An act of God contrary to the usual (providential) course of nature (Radical empiricism denies the possibility of miracles, and argues that the term is merely the subjective response of an individual surprised and/or perplexed by an otherwise natural phenomenon )
A medieval drama portraying events in the lives of saints and martyrs. Type of vernacular drama performed in the Middle Ages, presenting a real or fictitious account of the life, miracles, or martyrdom of a saint. The genre evolved from the liturgical dramas of the 10th-11th centuries, which were intended to enhance church calendar festivals. By the 13th century the plays were separated from church services and performed at public festivals by members of craft guilds and other amateur actors. Most miracle plays concerned either the Virgin Mary or St. Nicholas, both of whom had active cults in the Middle Ages. See also morality play; mystery play
approval If you describe someone as a miracle worker, you mean that they have achieved or are able to achieve success in something that other people have found very difficult. At work he was regarded as a miracle worker, the man who took risks and could not lose
As Karl Ferdinand Werner has pointed out, the 'European miracle' 'did not take place after the 'Middle Ages' or in spite of the 'Middle Ages', but because of the existence of a Christian world dominated in the West by Catholic doctrines, a world we have become accustomed to call the Middle Ages.' (Hans Albert, Between social science, religion and politics: essays in critical rationalism, 1999, p. 205, citing K. F. Werner in Baechler/Hall/Mann (eds.), 1988, p. 172.).
