One of the most exceptional wonders is the Atonement of Jesus Christ—no supernatural occurrence has ever been so broad or incredible. In any case, are those the main kinds of encounters that could be viewed as supernatural occurrences?

President Dallin H. Oaks, First Counselor in the First Presidency, stated, “Numerous marvels happen each day in crafted by our Church and in the lives of our members.”1 But when was the last time you moved a mountain or saw a couple of fish and a couple of portions of bread feed thousands? The majority of us presumably haven’t seen anything like that. So by what method can President Oaks’ announcement be valid?

In any case, there are different supernatural occurrences that we will in general overlook: The sun rises and sets every day; little seeds develop into compelling trees; the numerous segments of our body cooperate, empowering us to inhale, run, dream, and eat. Roused progresses in medication and innovation are going on consistently, and we would now be able to speak with nearly anybody anyplace. God’s capacity can be found in everything about our lives.
