Book Review: You Were Born for This

Click here to read an excerpt from the book.

In "You Were Born for This," Bruce Wilkinson states that miracles happen every day. God uses and actively seeks people who will act as delivery agents for Him. He calls each of His followers into a life of service to Him, but not everyone answers. Wilkinson walks his readers through a step-by-step practical plan that shows them how to confidently work in partnership with God to impact the lives of others. He argues that anyone can be used as part of a miracle as long as he/she is expecting it and knows the formula for making it happen.

This is another book that has the potential to be life-changing. It is exciting to think that we can play a part in delivering God's miracles every day, but at the same time, the thought is a bit scary. We only need faith the size of a mustard seed to move mountains, but how many of us actually step out and exercise it? I was challenged by the concepts in this book, and I found myself doubting that I could step into the delivery role Wilkinson describes. The key is trusting God and putting my faith in Him. I'm not the one performing the miracle; I'm simply acting as His hands. I just have to become more aware of what He is nudging me to do.
