Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, Thus far the Lord has helped us. (1 Samuel 7:12 NKJV)
The above scripture really spoke to me today. Samuel used a stone to remind him. I thought about myself. Thus far the lord has surely helped me. What can I give to the lord because of his faithfulness. I believe that I should give him more of my trust. I should trust him more. I think I should turn over more control to him, even though God has the power to control everything, he allows us to give over control of our lives to him. He does not just take it. We all have a problem wanting to be in control.
