"where have the miracles gone?"

I've heard it said that we should not expect much propesies today and that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are also not for today. I can well understand if some believers do not see such gifts in operation but to then try and shoehorn theology to justify the view that miracles are not for today denies the character of Jesus, who according to Hebrews chapter 8 verse 11 is unchanging. Remember Gideon. In his day no miracles were seen but did he conclude that the age of miracles was over? NO. He cried out to God asking "where have the miracles gone?". This is a more appropriate response than denying the miraculous presence and intervention of God today. What do you think?
