Then Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpah and Shen, and named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the LORD has helped us.” 1Samuel 7:12
Samuel councelled the sons of Israel to remove the Baals and the Ashtaroth and worship the one true God. The Bible says, “Samuel cried to the LORD for Israel and the LORD answered him.” God gave them victory over the Philistines and restored their cities to them. Have you acknowledged the victories you’ve won by the Lord’s hand or do you seem to be stuck on your failures? Although we may fall, we will rise. Stop striving in your own strength to be bigger, stronger and better Christians. Repent and return to the Lord. Before you can dust off your knees, He will stoop to help you up.
