In my last post, I encouraged you to celebrate a number of things while in the midst of persevering through your current circumstances. One thing I encouraged you to celebrate was your Ebenezer. For those of you who missed that post, I'll bring you up to speed.
Revisiting those times when you experienced God's faithfulness and provision offers encouragement for what we're facing today. An Ebenezer is a "stone of help," or a reminder of God’s Real, Holy Presence and Divine aid.
1 Samuel 7:12, "Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the LORD has helped us.”" (NIV)
This thought is even in one verse of the hymn "Come thou Fount of Very Blessing"
Have you ever recorded His wonderful and marvelous blessings? If you have, pull out those pages and revisit your own story in your own words.
If you've never recorded your story, ask the Lord to bring those times and experiences to your mind and jot them down.
I love to revisit the pages of my journals. To be reminded of the hard places and God's amazing provision and presence.
Now, I'd like to ask you to share your Ebenezer Stones with us. I'm confident it will be an encouragement to us all.
