Ebenezer Wall Stories
In Bible times, believers often took a large stone or built a pile of stones commemorating a time and place where they saw God move on their behalf and help them. These commemorative stones were called Ebenezers which means “Stone of Help.”
Samuel then took a large stone and placed it between the towns of Mizpah and Jeshanah. He named it Ebenezer (which means “the stone of help”), for he said, “Up to this point the Lord has helped us!” 1 Samuel 7:12
As Dayspring has prayed into how to Strengthen the Hub, we’ve become aware that living as spokes in different communities, we are often not together when we see God move, and by the time we are gathered together again we don’t think to tell the stories about what we’ve seen God do. We miss a giant opportunity to encourage each other and strengthen our faith by not stopping to tell these stories to each other.
So the Ebenezer Wall now designates a place on our website to share our stories when we see God move. These could be one sentence testimonies or even one word in some cases. However, a short story with a few more details may go even farther in inviting others to “look what the Lord has done!”
