Ebenezer

A well known name and I believe, often used by the Lord's people, after the example of Samuel, upon numberless occasions in life. If the reader will consult 1 Samuel 7:1-17 he will be enabled to enter into the Spirit of the expression, if so be the Lord be his teacher. And should the Lord give him also a right view of the subject, he will discover that the mercy was not confined to the days of Samuel, but in all ages of the church, the faithful can, and do, find causes daily to set up their Ebenezers, "to the praise of the glory of his grace, who maketh them accepted in the Beloved." Even in the moment of writing do I find cause to set up the Ebenezer of the morning, "hitherto hath the Lord helped!" And, reader, what a sweet additional thought is it, in the full assurance of faith, to refresh the soul, that he who hath hitherto helped, and doth help, will help, through grace, in life, and in glory, to all eternity. I only add, under this article, that there is a great strength of expression in the word Ebenezer. It is a compound meaning Eben, or Aben, a stone, JEHOVAH laid in Zion, in whom whosoever believeth, shall never be confounded? (Compare Isaiah 28:16 with 1 Peter 2:6-8)
