BOOK REVIEW: YOU WERE BORN FOR THIS--7 Keys to a Life of Predictable Miracles by Bruce Wilkinson with David Kopp

"In the engaging style that made his book The Prayer of Jabez popular with millions around the world, Bruce Wilkinson is asking more life-changing questions:

* Why are experiences of the miraculous so rare for most people?
* What if God wanted you to experience them on a regular basis?
* And what if ordinary people like you and me are invited to partner with God to deliver them to others?"

"In You Were Born for This, you will discover that all God needs for a miracle mission is a willing servant. No special credentials required."

Bruce says, "I wrote this book to help you see that the land of personal, everyday miracles is your rightful home turf. Instead of focusing on the nature-defying acts that God could do, this book invites you to encounter the miracles that God does do on a regular basis, and to embrace your exciting part in making them happen."

He goes on to say, "The truth is, you were born to live a supernatural life doing God's work by God's power. You were born to walk out your door each morning believing that God will use you to deliver a necessary miracle to someone in need."

For centuries, God spoke through prophecies, dreams and visions. But for years I believed and taught that after the Bible was complete that God spoke only through the Scriptures. But I have studied the subject intensely and have become convinced that God communicates with us in more than one way. But He never contradicts His Word--never! It is extremely important to recognize and obey His "voice" as He directs and leads us to do His will.

I recommend You Were Born For This as an excellent, biblical and practical book. This book will help Christians of all ages in their daily walk with God.

Hi Clif...thanks for the review. I need to read this book. Being raised Baptist, but attendig Assembly of God, I've had many discussions about this subject with friends..we wonder why we don't see the miracles in this country that we hear about...often, the answer sees to be we don't have the faith, or we're complacent, but maybe we are waiting for someone else to step out, not believing we could possbly be the vessel that God wants to use. I believe God speaks to us through His Spirit as well as His Word...we have to be still and listen, and then obey.

God bless,

Another great review and a must read for me. I often wondered where all the miracles and prophets of God went. I guess I have been looking in all the wrong places.
