An Ebenezer Stone: 2/20/22

An “Ebenezer Stone” is a stone set up for a people to remember what God has done in their lives. This is just one of many Ebenezer Stones… which I pray brings many to Christ.

Today at church, we had a guest speaker. He was the child of a prostitute and was almost aborted, but the Lord kept him alive. He was born prematurely with only 20% of his heart working, his nose wasn’t connected to his ears and throat, etc. He was also the victim of heinous abuse and wet the bed because he was so behind intelligently and abused so greatly. 

But one year, a new teacher came to his school. She said to the principal, “I want to teach your most difficult students. Do you have any?” They immediately spoke about him and how he couldn’t even read and didn’t talk much. She said, “I want to teach him.”

As she met him for the first time, she asked him, “Baby, I hear you can’t read. Have you ever heard of the Bible?” He had not since his family was atheistic. She pulled open Jeremiah 1:4-8 and read it together:

The word of the Lord came to me, saying,
‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.’

‘Alas, Sovereign Lord,’ I said, ‘I do not know how to speak; I am too young.’

But the Lord said to me, ‘Do not say, “I am too young.” You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,’ declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 1:4-8, NIV

That passage changed his life forever. He realized his worth, he learned how to read, became the top of his class, and is now a great prominent pastor of a Baptist Church.

Why do I tell you this? Because when he explained how this teacher showed him his worth by reading that passage, my whole heart said to Jesus, as I started to weep in my seat, “Jesus, I want to do that.” I want to teach children about Jesus and pray over them. I have felt unworthy of such a calling for many different reasons, but today, I was set free.

The pastor at the end asked if anyone wanted to come up to the altar for a prayer of deliverance from various things. I came up with many other people. Some people were even yelling-crying. It was intense.

God has moved! This is my Ebenezer Stone. Please pray that this deliverance would continue to work mightily in my heart and that I would be able to somehow work with the kids no one believes in, to bring them to Jesus. Now that Jesus has done this great work, I am expecting the enemy to attack, and to try hard to remove this work. Pray he would not!

Just had to share. I have cried many happy tears today, and will probably continue to. Thank you for your powerful prayers.

With Love in Christ,


Do you know Jesus?
