In 1 Samuel 7, the Israelites were being attacked by the Philistines. They asked Samuel to cry out to the Lord for help because all hope was lost. God showed up and defeated the Philistines. Samuel set up a stone there and called it Ebenezer meaning, “The Lord has helped us!” Just as He showed up to help them, God still shows up to help us in our most hopeless situations. Like Samuel, we need to call out to the Lord to come and fight for us. The same God who fought for them, fights for you. He is a very present help in time of need. When you’ve tried doing everything on your own, seek the Lord and His help.
