Brian Lake takes you through a deeper study on Esther's life in Romancing the King with the overall objective of the book being to show us how God desires us to enter into His courts - into a place of intimacy with Him. Lake tells of how Esther was called and how we are called as well. He tells of how Esther spent time preparing for that special place of intimacy, and how we are to do the same. Furthermore, Lake goes on to tell of our purpose and destiny here on this earth.
So while all that might sound appealing in bullet-point form, I must say the book lacked that engaging ability that all of us readers love to see and have in books. Honestly, with hundreds of thousands of books in the field of Christian literature, to read a book that lacks the ability to fully engage the reader - it's just not worth it, and it surely isn't worth it for the non-avid reader.
To bring Brian Lake due justice, there are some good things to say about this book as well. For me, the top two qualities of this book are his topical discussions on issues that bring us into more intimacy with God and the Points to Ponder sections at the end of each chapter. Two topical sections that he gives some great explanation on are fasting and communion. For example, he tells the reader about different practicals of fasting that can help us enter into a deeper place of intimacy with God.Read more ›
Because we were created to know Him, when we know what He likes, Lake says, we will be favored by the Lord just like Esther in the Bible. This is not an easy one, two, three step to intimacy, but if the reader is serious about ongoing relationship then heed Lake's advice that the degree of access we have to God's presence is connected to the depths of our relationship with Him. While you understand the importance of quiet time, fasting, and reading the word, discover also how to rid yourself of constant busyness and purge out sin that wrecks intimacy. "In order to access the windows to the kingdom, we must clean the rooms in our hearts. Then,and only then will we access the rivers of living waters, revelation, power, and love of the kingdom. "
Learn the truth about the Holy Spirit and that He responds to a hungry heart for God.
I discovered how to better posture myself for key visitation experiences. By spending time in His presents, the author exhorts, the love and trust relationship sores and casts out fear. Included also in this book are seven steps to knowing God: faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, steadfastness, godliness, and love. This work stimulated me to design a regular intimacy with the Father and to realize if we are not in a right relationship with God that we will not have a visitation or manifestation of His presence.Read more ›
In profoundly meaningful conversations with God Brian leads the reader into the eminent presence of the King. Brian reminds the reader that transforming worship is more than forms, creeds, styles, and methods. This worship involves a "presence driven focus" on experiencing intimacy with God.
"Romancing the King" is founded on the Word of God. Brian Lake writes of his personal experiences and revelations introducing a rising generation of new believers to their purpose and destiny as he encourages them to explore a deeper level of worship.
