Acts 2:39 “The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off– for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
The scene: 1) a bog: any natural soft waterlogged ground. 2) Seven stepping stones which represents God’s promises. Seven is the Bible number for revelation, perfection and fullness; for if we stay on the right path (narrow way) we can gain our objective, eternal life with God, and serve Him!
In life people may get bogged down, created by situations that cause anxiety and depression, loss of hope. But God, in His wisdom, left us His promises, which are new every morning, to help us through (not around) whatever is giving us grief. Some say there are over 7,000 promises in the Word of God!
James 1:22” Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”
The Holy Spirit has been given to us through a promise for guidance.
John 16:13 ” But when he the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you in all truth. He will not speak on His own, he will tell you what is yet to come.”
Proverbs 6:20, 23 ” My Son keep your Father’s commands and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections are the way to life.”
