Thought for the Day by Phil Moon (Vicar)
Ebenezer. One of those words we haven’t a clue what it means.
It appears in Come Thou fount of every blessing and we sing it cheerfully, and sometimes explain it before we sing it. You’ll find it in 1Samuel 7:12 “Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying “Thus far the Lord has helped us”. It’s in the context of the Philistines being a nuisance with repeated battles, and the Israelites have just won a resounding victory.
I don’t think it’s taking things too far to say exactly the same for us today in this period of lockdown. Thus far the Lord has helped us. With our loneliness; with our tech; with our food supplies; with our health; with our church services; with our pastoral care; with our family; with our mental health. And so on. And we believe that just as the Lord has been faithful and has helped us, so He will continue to be. He is our Ebenezer, our stone of help.
“Thus far has the Lord helped us.”
