Rooted In Promise


Hello, my name is Robert Gay and I am the Pastor of High Praise Panama City and this is God today. I am so glad to be with you and I believe there are some things I am going to share with you that are going to help you as a believer.  I believe they are going to encourage you to receive the fullness of everything God has for you.


I want to share some things today, actually, about living your life rooted in the promise of God.  The Bible says that through the promises of God we are actually made partakers of the divine nature.  As a matter of fact, the way we are saved is through the belief in the promise of God and in acting upon what God is actually said and the promise of salvation.


We read in the Bible that Abraham was a man who received a promise from the Lord.  And God actually said, “I will make you a father of many nations.” As a matter of fact, He actually called him a father of many nations before he even had a child.  As a matter of fact, God actually changed his name from Abram to Abraham. Abram is, of course, his original name, being changed to Abraham which means “father of many nations”.  We have to understand that God calls those things which be not as though they were. God began to refer to Abram as a father of many nations, Abraham before he even had a child.  You have to realize that you have a choice, every day, to live your life rooted in the promise of God or you can live based upon your past experience.


You have to ask yourself the question, “Am I going to live rooted in the promise or rooted in the past?”  You have to realize if you make a decision to live in your past, it will always tie you to only what you received in your past.  You will never really be able to receive the fullness of what God has for you. I am sure there are some great things that have happened to you in days gone by.  But, I want to assure you of this, the days ahead are greater than the days that you have experienced in your past. So it is important that we begin to base our lives and live our lives upon the promise that God has given to us, rather than the past that we have experienced.  You have to realize that you are not to determine the future God has for you, based upon your past experience. Rather, we determine the future by what God has promised us and what He has actually spoken over our lives.


My friend, God has great things for you.  It actually says over in Jeremiah, that “God has plans to give you a hope and a future, plans to prosper you.  Plans to do you good.” It is important that we begin to establish our lives founded and grounded within the promise of God.  Whenever you begin to do that, what begins to take place is your life is elevated. You begin to live at a higher level than you were living at before.  You begin to see things differently than the way you saw them before because you are living your life based upon what God has promised you, not based upon the past that you’ve experienced.  We have to understand that God desires to take us from glory to glory and from faith to faith.  


As you begin to receive the promise of God, as you grab ahold of everything God has promised you and declared over your life, whether it be about family, whether it be about health, whether it be about business, finance, whatever it may be.  I want you to hear this: God is going to cause your life to be elevated. You are going to go from the level of glory you are at right now to a higher realm of glory. It is going to be determined by you making a choice that I am going to live my life based and rooted within the promise of God.


I want to pray for you today.  Father God, I pray for every person listening right now.  I ask God, that you would minister to them and reveal your promise to them.  Father, I pray you would cause your promise to come alive within their life. Lord, the promise would live bigger than the past that they experienced.  I thank you, Father God, you are elevating their lives. You are taking them to a higher realm of glory as they begin to receive and grab hold of the promise of God.  I thank you, Father, that we can war a good warfare with the prophetic words and prophetic promises that you have given us. I thank you, Father, those things will be fulfilled in Jesus’ name.  Again, my friend, I want to encourage you to live your life rooted in the promise of God. Don’t allow doubt, unbelief, and negativity to rule within your life. Allow the Word of God to dwell richly in the inside of you and live from a place of promise rather than living from the place of your past.  My friend, I am Robert Gay and this is God Today.
