“Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mispah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far has the LORD helped us.” 1 Samuel 7:12
After defeating the Philistines, the Israelites set a memorial stone called Ebenezer, saying “Thus far has the LORD helped us.” Just as they, we sometimes need reminded of God’s faithfulness. When the future looks uncertain with no clear path before us, we become fearful. Look to the ROCK. Thank him for the past, have confidence in him for the future and trust him for the needs of today.
God, our ROCK, is the God of the past, present and future.
