Loving Reminders

Then Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpah and Shen, and named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.”
1 Samuel 7:12

Ebenezer:
A stone commemorating God’s intervention
in very difficult circumstances. Samuel set it there
to be a reminder to him of the presence of God
IN his circumstances.

Lord, I should have some “Ebenezers” stacked around.

How far You have come with me’have led me’have helped me. How I thank You for Your lovingkindness, Your compassion, Your patience, Your design for my life.

When I look back over the years, Lord, it is absolutely incomprehensible to imagine where I would be if You had not been there to bring me through those difficult circumstances, those stress-filled days.

Yes, I need an Ebenezer so that when I’m thinking the way is too difficult and I just won’t make it, I can turn around and look . . . a rock to remind me: ” Thus far the Lord has helped me.” Why should I think He has reached a point where He isn’t going to be there any longer?

I’m sorry, dear Lord. I want to learn.
Excuse me, please. I have to go find a stone.
