stones will serve as a reminder to you.
In days to come, your children will ask you,
"What do these stones mean?"
- Joshua 4:6
Can you remember times
when you've felt really close to God? When you were sad, did
God bring comfort to you? Maybe you needed to be strong and He
gave you strength? You were sick and He made you well. You were
in trouble and He fixed your problem or maybe you were wrong
and God showed you what was right. All of these times can be
used as stone markers or "spiritual markers." They
show how God has been with you in the past. They can lead you
where God wants you in the future.
We all have spiritual
markers. Praying and reading God's Word are the most important
"stones" for guiding our path. We can know about God's
promises when we read the Bible. The Bible will also help us
understand His answers to our prayers. He always answers! Sometimes
He says, "Yes." But sometimes, because He knows what
is best, He say, "No" or "Wait awhile." Remembering
how God helped us yesterday will make our faith grow stronger
each day. We can share God with others.
