Raise Our Ebenezer

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

 

In the Old Testament, the prophet Samuel set up a rock and declared it a reminder to the Israelites.  Each time they passed, they would recall the battles God had brought them through.  The Israelites would have a physical reminder of His faithfulness in their journey.  This week, we celebrated our first family-created holiday: Ebenezer Day.  We marked key dates on four stones and stacked them as an altar of remembrance.  With each stone we recounted what brought us to that point.  We created an Ebenezer in our home.

Elliana’s Salvation Date

As the years pass, I pray we add two more salvation dates to our Ebenezer.  Who knows what else will be added to the testimony?  Our prayer is that as we celebrate Ebenezer Day each year, our witness will be strengthened as we testify of His faithfulness.
