After the Israelites defeated the Philistines, Samuel planted a stone on the ground and called it Ebenezer, saying “Thus far has the Lord helped us.” We too, need to be reminded how the Lord has led us in the past. If we were to place a stone of Ebenezer every time God has helped us, we would have a vast collection by now.
God has been our help in the past thus we ought to be confident that HE has provided for our future as well. We can thank HIM for the past and have confidence that HE has a good plan for our future. Though it may seem difficult to trust HIM for the needs of today, we must remember that HE is able and willing to do the same for us today as HE did in the past and will do in the future.
HE is the great I’AM of today, the all sufficient one we need for this very moment. When doubts and uncertainties creep in, remember your stones of Ebenezer.
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."
