You Were Born For This
7 Keys to a Life of Predictable Miracles
By Bruce Wilkinson
From the author of The Prayer of Jabez comes a new book about how to bring miracles to life for the people you encounter in your life.
Bruce Wilkinson has written a book that he believes will help us all live a life of miracles. He believes that by following a few simple principles you too will be able to be a miracle to someone else. He uses this book to explain how he believes this can be achieved. In fact this book is written as a step by step plan to implement this blessing into your life.
This brings up the immediate question; is it achievable? I do believe in leading a miracle enhanced life and I think that Bruce has a valid plan to achieve this life. I do have a few personal problems with how he sees things occurring in the realm of heaven but aside from my own personal interpretations of the Bible, I believe that Bruce has made this process as simple as possible.
This does not mean that the performance of the process is simple or easy, but it does mean that Bruce has the ability to make the complex, simple. He has seven key steps to putting yourself in the path of Jesus and allowing Him to use you to bring hope to someone else.
Even though the steps are written out: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7; it is still not as simple as that. It requires both commitment and faith on your part. You are the one who will need to take those steps out in faith to put yourself in the path of the needy. You are the one who will need to be available when Jesus needs you not when you need to feel like it. You are the one who will have to believe that Jesus will be there to give you the tools necessary to provide what someone else needs.
I read this book and enjoyed it because not only does Bruce give us a step by step plan; he also gives us examples of how it has occurred in both his life as well as the lives of others whom he has drawn stories from.
It is these stories which encouraged me the most. I am slightly intimidated by the process, yet these stories help me to believe that it is possible but also that it is worthwhile. It is encouraging and hopeful. It is something we all need to have more of in our own lives. It is interesting that the book in and of itself is a miracle. I am sure someone will read this and will find the book to be the miracle they themselves are looking for.
My advice to anyone who reads this book is to do the work necessary on your own side to make it what you need it to be. If that is to read more of the Bible to discern what is true; read the Bible. If it is to pray for the opportunities to start slow and grow with this process; then pray. As with anything worth having in this life, it is all about what you are willing to put into something those values what you will get out of something. In this case you are not going to be the only one who receives value; it may be someone who really needs the miracle you and Jesus are going to provide for them.
