Becoming an agent for miracles is possible,
This review is from: You Were Born for This: Seven Keys to a Life of Predictable Miracles (Hardcover)Welcome to Mission Central, the place where God send whoever he wants and whoever is willing to a special mission. Are you willing to put on your delivery uniform and follow God on it? Are you willing to offer God yourself so He can use you on a daily basis? Are you willing to experience to enter the Land of Everyday Miracle Territory instead of staying in the Land of Signs and Wonders or the Land of Good Deeds? If you are then be prepare to be amazed at what opportunities God will bring to you. Oh and it is guaranteed that He will match you with people or situations unique for your own life. Every agent will experience something different. Isn't it neat?
Every miracle starts with a person in need. It's not our choices. It's not our agenda. It's not who you would pick or which mission you would prefer. God is the one in control and our role is to be there to serve anyone, anytime and anywhere He seems fit for us. The important thing is to serve God and please Him... not the people around us.
Our partner in this mission is the Holy Spirit. He will guide us and help us in time in need. The important thing to remember is not the fear take over us and to step out of our comfort zone. It won't be easy all the time but with time we will become more able to do it. Practice does indeed make it perfect.
Open your eyes and see the need around you. It can be your neighbor, the server at the restaurant, the lady who serves your coffee every morning, your co-worker, your child's teacher, etc. You have to commit yourself to the agency and be aware of your environment. God can bring an opportunity to you at any moment. Are you ready?
The book explains the various key necessary to open the door of possibilities for you to be involved in some miracles on a daily basis. It will also guide you in the steps to take when you are in the middle of a miracle mission. The book also present three special delivery missions: money, dream and forgiveness. During the reading of the book, you will also read about various stories of ordinary people who were there when God brought up a mission on their lap. They didn't hesitate and followed His lead. Some stories brought tears in my eyes while I read them.
I learned a lot while reading this book and I plan to be open to anything God will bring on my path. I know I can help others as it had happened in the past. I, myself, if a child of divorce (it happened when I was in my 20s) and I had the opportunity of helping a woman dealing with the fact her husband had cheated on her while I was at the park with my son a few years ago. I was able to pray for her and her son as well as her marriage. I was able to give her a book from Dr. Dobson that I had just finished reading and annotated from my own experience with my parents. I wonder today how she is doing but she had called to tell me the book was helping her a lot. It was totally unexpected and scary at first but I helped her anyway.
Somehow, as the years went by, I "lost" the possibility of being available. Why? I don't know maybe because I got busier with various things - primarily my own kids. But I see the importance of telling God that we are available to experience the Everyday Miracle Territory. Personally, I want more of these miracles in my life. Where is my uniform God? I want to be a delivery agent for You! How about you dear reader? Are you willing to step out of faith and be there for whoever God brings on your path?
