Rooted: The Hidden Places Where God Develops You Reviews
It's quite amazing the timing of this book coming into my life. About 2 days before receiving this book in the mail I was talking to my husband how I feel like how I must have missed it, I told him, "I'm 31 years old, have 4 children, still working on my college degree. I know being a Mother is a huge calling, but I'm eager to walk in the fullness of the call of God on my life. When will that happen?" You see, I had fallen prey to the lie of the enemy that said, where you're at is insignificant, and look over there at this other girl who is in her 30s, look at all the impact she's having. Lies, all lies. So, 2 days later I received the book, and basically cried through chapters 1 and 2, as I felt Jesus come in close and breathe truth over those lies. I encountered Jesus in the sweetest way possible while reading this book. I don't think I've ever read a book that has hit so close to home in my heart as this one....and I read a lot. I basically loved every word written in this book. It's really rare to read a book that moves you heart and soul, aside from the Bible; this book is more than just words on a page. There is so much healing in this book, and profound truth on its pages. This is a book that needs to be read, and re-read until it gets into your heart, "God is trying to grow you right where you're at." Banning communicates in a way that feels as if your sitting right next to him as he shares his heart with you. It's easy to see that you're reading his heart on every page. Get the book. It will change your life.
I recently discovered I knew God was able, but I doubted if He was willing. What was stopping Him from delivering on the promises and dreams He had so clearly put in my heart? Why am I still waiting? No sooner had I admitted I had a problem with the way God was doing things (I'm sure we both got a big laugh over that) I discovered 'Rooted' at 2AM as I failed to sleep with these challenges circling in my mind.
I have had the great honor and privilege to have Banning as my youth pastor and overseer in my 2nd and 3rd of School of Ministry, now I have the honor to review his book Rooted. He truly is walking example of his book. Rooted really ministered and encouraged me in the season I am in right now in my growth and ministry. To be honest it really gave me courage. It was such a reminder to me to keep steady, stay on course, and remember what is truly important. It’s not what usually man looks at. I’m going to be real this isn’t a light read, it’s real. It’s about what it truly means to follow Jesus. What it looks like and how it feels.
This book helped me so much exactly when I needed it. I thought I knew where God was leading me and was really working on recommitting to my faith, and then things with a potential job that I thought was going to set me for the rest of my life did not work out. I felt so lost, confused, hurt, and unsure. But this book did wonders in guiding me to realize that God is developing me first before I can do what I believe He wants me to do with my life. This hardship was just another stepping stone, and now God is leading me to what is next.
I enjoyed this book a lot. It showed me, that none of my issues with faith and patience, are not mine alone.
I herd Banning preach a few times @ Bethel Church while I was in BSSM school of ministry. He was incredible. Real, raw with a direct message that will hit you right to the core into maturity. I was really impressed with him. I didn't know he had a book, and I am so happyl I bought this book. I think he is an amazing writer, if you are up for the challenge. I say challenge because not everyone is willing or ready to grow, this book addresses tons of the issues that I feel as believers are lacking, specially maturity. In a western self-centered Christianity I think this book is a must have. Again, IF you want to grow. I loved it, will read it again and will give it out as a present to anyone I know.
