Can you imagine naming a stone?
Samuel named the stone Ebenezer. It literally means ‘stone of help’.
It is a reminder of God’s protection and power. It is a symbol of the help God will provide when we trust Him.
It is a stone of remembrance reminding us that God is our help.
We can place our own Ebenezer when we remember the times God has helped us through the ‘tough stuff’ of our lives.
Abba, Father, You are all-powerful and the help we need in these trying and troubling times. Direct and protect us through this day!
Read 1 Samuel 7 for the rest of the story.
Come Thou Fount
