Adoration – The Forgotten Face of God as our Promise Keeper
Bob Hartley shares:
“In an encounter God spoke that He is again revealing His Face as the Promise Keeper to us, like he did to Abraham and Isaac who learned to look at the promise keeper even when the promises got challenged. They looked as we should with God from “an above the clouds” view of what was to come. They also remembered, as we should, the promises fulfilled in their lives as they called forth the promises that were yet to come. In this season God, the Promise Keeper is specifically speaking the promises of Isaiah 58:12 to us . . . .”
Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins; You will raise up the age-old foundations; And you will be called the repairer of the breach, The restorer of the streets in which to dwell.
Bob: “The Promise Keeper Face of God is that of a Patriarchal Father who sees the promises for us a long ways out and gives everything to see them fulfilled in our lives so that we may receive the inheritance He has for us. He forgives and restores in all of our Life. He bears our burdens. He protects and delivers. God is our Patriarchal Father who strides, smiles, squeezes, shouts, and smooches! In our toughest state, He gives the most! He loves to build and partner with us by His caring powerful voice on the 7 mountains! He gives us an inheritance, supplies, builds with us, sought us out and hears and speaks to us on the 7 mountains. He gives us hinds feet on high places.” (Luke 15) He put His arm around me, put a robe on my back, put a ring on my finder, and walks with me into the future in rest!”
