New Year's Eve
1Samuel 7:11 & 12:
And the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until [they came] under Bethcar. Then Samuel took a stone, and set [it] between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us.
We have come to the last day of 2015 and can like Samuel set up our "stone" of memorial and say "hitherto hath the Lord helped me." There may have been battles to fight and victories to win and "stuff" to go through - BUT GOD has been with us through it all! Mark it down - remember all the way the Lord has led you through this year - when you take time to reflect, you'll be amazed at all HIS good hand has done! This gives us courage to place our hands in HIS and allow Him to lead us into yet another year!
