The Bible: showing me where I'm going

TO ME, THE PROMISE of the Bible is not just about historical and legendary figures. It's about me—about my own spiritual development.

When I read about Abraham's discovering that there is one omnipotent God, for example, I remember my own wonder at accepting this truth. God's promise to Abraham became His promise to me, as I learned that following the one God allows me to experience His constant care (see Gen. 12:1, 2). The change in Jacob's character at Peniel touches me because I, too, have had profound personal encounters with my Father-Mother that led to physical and moral healing (see Gen. 32:24-30).
