READ John Hagee Daily Devotional November 23 2022.
SCRIPTURE: Genesis 28:22 “And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God’s house”
God knew that we have a tendency to forget, so He encouraged some simple habits to help us remember His wonders. He instructed the Israelites to tie His words on their hands and foreheads, to inscribe them on their doorposts, to speak them to their children, to build altars, celebrate annual feasts, and pile up memorial stones!
On his way to Haran one night, Jacob used a stone for a pillow. He dreamed of a ladder with angels descending to earth and ascending to heaven. When he awoke, he set up the stone and poured oil over it – a reminder of the covenant God had made with him (Genesis 28).
When God rolled back the waters of the Jordan to allow the Israelites into the Promised Land, He commanded them to choose twelve stones from the dry riverbed and carry them across on their shoulders.
Joshua piled up those stones – one for each tribe of Israel – as a future memorial. When their children asked about that mysterious heap, their parents could tell the miraculous stories of the mighty God they served (Joshua 4).
In this week of Thanksgiving, take time to remember the memorial stones in your own life – the ways that God met you. For the place He brought you from and every promise He has kept – give thanks for those stones of remembrance.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Remember His promises kept, His wonders revealed, and His love shed abroad for you. Give thanks with a grateful heart!
