God is not interested in developing your vision first. He's interested in developing you.
In Rooted, Banning Liebscher takes us to the life of David to show how God expands our root system in the hidden places to leave an impact on the visible world. It was in a field of prayerful devotion, a season of serving, and a cave of community that God prepared David for his crown - the same way God prepares us. Take a look at your own life. Are you embracing God's process, the sometimes painstaking and maddening process? When we can release ourselves to God, we will find that we can thrive while he develops us rather than succumb to discouragement.
Whatever your age or season of life, it takes immense courage to slow down enough to let God grow a root system in your life, so you can bear fruit that remains. You are where you are because God has planted you there. Discover what it looks like to embrace his process, so you can do what he has called you to do: change the world.

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...
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 will definitely continue to reread this book throughout my life, it is just that good and helpful.
Two things I love about this book: First, it’s apparent that Banning speaks out of personal experience. His words demonstrate a rare and refreshing level of understanding of God’s character. It’s undeniable that the lessons he unearths in Rooted are actually a lifestyle he has put into practice himself. Second, and on a more personal level, I was blown away that this book spoke to exactly what my primary goal is for this year - to simply abide. This is a core principle of our faith, and without it, we essentially have no real relationship with Jesus, so obviously this is relevant to us all. But God was very clear in individually asking me for more this year, to truly remain in Him. And Rooted has been invaluable encouragement. Also, would make an awesome small group study!!
