If Jesus was God, why did Jesus depend on God to perform the miracles?

The answer is simple:

Acts 2:22 (NIV)
“Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.”

    Further proving his dependence on God and only his servant, he(as) is recorded as having failed to do miracles (notice he also calls himself a prophet):

    1Jesus went on from there and came to His hometown, accompanied by His disciples. 2When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard Him were astonished. “Where did this man get these ideas?” they asked. “What is this wisdom He has been given? And how can He perform such miracles? 3Isn’t this the carpenter, the son of Mary and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon? Aren’t His sisters here with us as well?” And they took offense at Him.

    4Then Jesus told them, “A prophet is without honor only in his hometown, among his relatives, and in his own household.” 5So He could not perform any miracles there, except to lay His hands on a few of the sick and heal them. 6And He was amazed at their unbelief. (Mark 6: 1-6)

    Expositor’s Greek Testament
    Mark 6:5. οὐκ ἠδύνατο, etc., He was not able to do any mighty work, which is qualified by the added clause, that He placed His hands on a few ailing persons (ἀρρώστοις); quite minor cures, not to be compared with those reported in the previous chapter. For this statement Mt. substitutes: He did not there many mighty works.

    Pulpit Commentary
    Verses 5, 6. – And he could there do no mighty work. This is a remarkable expression. He could do no mighty work there. The words imply want of power – that in some sense or other he was unable to do it.

    “But Mark was a liberal!!!!”
