My Rock, My Ebenezer

As you read this post, mediatate on the times in your life when God stepped in and helped you.

When all else fails
and nothingness prevails
When joy fades
and sorrow invades
Seek Jehovah Shalom
He is your peace

When debt encroaches
and the creditor approaches
When rent is due
yet your cheque won’t do
Seek Jehovah Jireh
He is your provider

When the cupboards are bare
and the babies need fare
When you’re far from satiety
as limbo is bliss
Take comfort in El Shaddai
He is your sufficiency

When accusations abound
and prejudice keeps you bound
When your character’s assaulted
causing your self-esteem to falter
Take comfort in Immanuel
He is always with you

When your health is failing
and a loved one is ailing
Instilling a scare
where peace should fare
Have faith in Jehovah Rapha
He is your healer

When failure surfaces
and negativity menaces
Questioning your ability
Cultivating insecurity
Look to El Roi
He sees your worth

Seated on the throne
Yahweh is your stone of help
Awaiting your cry
Be my Ebenezer

Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between the towns of Mizpah and Shen. 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).
