Haven’t had the experience.

Lots of Christians are cessationist—they don’t believe God does miracles (or big miracles) any longer. He did back in bible times; they don’t accept he still does. Sometimes they have bible verses to justify their unbelief. Sometimes they don’t, but it matters not: They don’t believe.

Why don’t they believe? It’s not the bible verses. It’s their experiences. More accurately, their lack of experience.

They don’t think it happens because they’re convinced their Christianity is a valid Christianity. (And let’s give ’em the benefit of the doubt; it probably is.) Within their Christianity, they’ve never seen an honest-to-God miracle. They’ve never been on the receiving end of one.
