“Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you].” 1 Thessalonians 5:24 (Amplified Bible)
Father, we thank you that You are faithful and utterly trustworthy. Thank you that You will fulfill Your call for Deeper Still and that You keep Deeper Still Team Members in Your loving care and protection. We remember and thank You for Your faithfulness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
1 Samuel 7: 12-14
12 Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen[a] and called its name Ebenezer;[b] for he said, “Till now the Lord has helped us.” 13 So the Philistines were subdued and did not again enter the territory of Israel. And the hand of the Lord was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel. 14 The cities that the Philistines had taken from Israel were restored to Israel, from Ekron to Gath, and Israel delivered their territory from the hand of the Philistines. There was peace also between Israel and the Amorites.
God is always faithful. Samuel set a stone up as a reminder to the Israelites of the Lord’s faithfulness. He called the stone, “Ebenezer”, which means, “the rock of help” and then declared, “Till now the Lord has helped us.”
The Lord subdued Israel’s enemies and delivered His people. We can be assured that the Lord will subdue the enemy and deliver His sons and daughters. He has been faithful in the past and He will continue to be faithful in the future. He will do what He has said He will do. He will fulfill the call and do it, we just need to trust.
As new chapters of Deeper Still are being started, let us remember God’s faithfulness in the past and expect His continued help moving forward. He who has called us, is also faithful to do it.
Below is another Ebenezer Stone from the Illinois Deeper Still Chapter, a barn board beautifully displaying God’s faithfulness.
