Bruce Wilkinson Book Review

You Were Born for This


Do you believe in miracles? Do you believe they can happen to anyone and everyone? I do! In the book You Were Born for This Bruce Wilkinson (author of The Prayer of Jabez) and David Kopp talk about what would happen if everyone walked around expecting miracles to happen. We pray and ask for miracles; however, many of us don't really expect a miracle to happen. I personally believe in miracles and have seen them happen in my life, in the lives of friends and family and in the lives of people I don't even know! I just need to be more open to expecting miracles to happen everyday!Summary:

Anyone can do a good deed, but some good works can only happen by a direct intervention from God. Around the world these acts are called miracles—not that even religious people expect to see one any time soon. But what would happen if millions of ordinary people walked out each morning expecting God to deliver a miracle through them to a person in need? You Were Born for This starts with the dramatic premise that everyone at all times is in need of a miracle, and that God is ready to meet those needs supernaturally through ordinary people who are willing to learn the “protocol of heaven.”

In the straightforward, story-driven, highly motivating style for which he is known, Wilkinson describes how anyone can be a “Delivery Guy” from heaven in such universally significant arenas of life as finances, practical help, relationships, purpose, and spiritual growth.

You Were Born for This will change how readers see their world, and what they expect God can do through them to meet real needs. They will master seven simple tools of service, and come to say with confidence, “I want to deliver a supernatural gift from God to someone in need today—and I expect to!”
