Bruce Wilkinson returns to what he does best---helping everyday Christians experience dramatic life change in key areas of their faith and practice. Like Joel Osteen and Rick Warren (whom he preceded on the New York Times lists), Wilkinson is able to reach a wide audience with spiritual teaching and motivation. You Were Born for This follows in the tradition of Wilkinson's previous best sellers in showing readers how to identify, embrace and achieve big ideas that have practical and dramatic daily applications.
"The Jabez guy is back." His new book shows readers how to cooperate with God to deliver personal, predictable miracles that meet real needs in the lives of others.
You were born to live a supernatural life doing God's work in your everyday world. To be precise, you were born to walk out your door each morning believing---even expecting---to witness a necessary miracle in another person's life. In fact, you were born to be the person who 'makes it happen.'
You Were Born for This starts with this dramatic premise and shows, step by step, why every person can expect to be part of a supernatural event on a routine basis, and how practically to make it happen. It takes readers 'behind the veil of heaven' to show---first--that everyone we meet is in need of a miracle at all times, and---second--that God passionately wants to meet these needs through ordinary people. Instead of focusing on the nature defying acts that God could do, the book invites readers to participate in the personal but no less miraculous events that God does do on a regular basis through willing servants.
The book describes in simple, motivating terms how anyone can be a 'Delivery Guy' from heaven in universally significant arenas of life, for example: service, provision, relationships, spirituality and purpose. Sample chapter titles show the tone and scope of the book: "Did You Say 'Miracles'?" "A New Way to See the World," "How to be God's 'Delivery Guy'" "Living Beyond the Merely Possible," and "Breaking Through to Your New Normal."
