You Were Born for This: Seven Keys to a Life of Predictable Miracles by Bruce Wilkinson


          
          What if you missed a miracle yesterday?  Do you believe that if God still works miracles, He only works them through a select group of people-not you? Then it's time to discover the truth. You were created to help others experience personal miracles on a regular basis. You were born to accomplish God's work by His power.

            This book will touch your heart. How often can you find a book that will help you discover that God wants you to be in the miracle business?

            When Wilkinson suggested that we begin each day by praying for God to use us to do a miracle in someone's life, now a decision to set aside your agenda for God's agenda. Asking God to use you today, not sometime, but today requires you to demonstrate radical trust and sacrifice. Perhaps the reason we see so few miracles is that so few of us are truly available to God.
           
            You Were Born for This not only opens our eyes to miracles we may otherwise ignore, but it teaches us to actively accept God's requests for us to carry out His supernatural miracles in the natural world. The book's emphasis is on delivering miracles to others, not about asking for miracles for ourselves.  Wilkinson provides a guide for inviting God to use oneself to deliver miracles.

            This is a good book about how God uses people to deliver his miracles. We tend to put God in a box which then squashes the things he can do through us. Written in an easy to read style, a reminder to be open to what God wants to do through all of us if we let him. I liked the practical ways the author gives to help others with where to start with being a miracle deliverer. I recommend this book if you want to discover ways to please God.

I received this book through the Blogging for Books Program from WaterBrook Multnomah for my review.
