His New York Times phenomenon The Prayer of Jabez changed how millions pray.
Now Bruce Wilkinson wants to change what they do next.


You Were Born For This (subtitled “7 Keys to a Life of Predictable Miracles”) is a book about what my pastor might call “intentional living”. In his newest book, Bruce Wilkinson lays out a plan that teaches the average believer how to partner with God and the Holy Spirit to impact others through everyday miracles.

Divided into four sections, You Were Born For This covers the following:

  1. Welcome to Everyday Miracle Territory
  2. Four Keys to a Life of Miracles
  3. How to Deliver a Miracle
  4. Three Keys to Special Delivery Miracles

You Were Born For This is written in an almost conversational style that is easy to read and follow and is separated into sections with points that is reminiscent of common sermon styles. Mr. Wilkinson fleshes out his teaching with narratives of the experiences of himself and others who have followed these keys.

Don’t let the word “miracles” throw you. This book is not about showy miracles such as instantaneous healings where the blind see, the deaf hear, or the lame walk (not to say that couldn’t happen); but instead seems to illustrate what some might call divine appointments or words of knowledge that make a difference in the other person’s life. Usually the miracle is that God will send a believer who is particularly equipped  to answer a specific need or  prayer for someone else.

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

So if you have ever wondered why God is not using you more or would like the answers to the above questions (from flyleaf), I would recommend that you purchase your own copy of You Were Born For This. You just might be like me and be eager to try these keys out yourself. Mr. Wilkinson makes so much sense and his keys are so simple that you will wonder why we have never learned this before now.

YouWerBornAnyone 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 how Heaven works.

In the straightforward, story-driven, highly motivating style for which he is known, Wilkinson describes how anyone can help others experience miracles 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 now I know how!”
