Song Series: Only King Forever

Only King Forever by Elevation Church

Celebrating God's faithfulness

Then Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpah and Shen, and named it Ebenezer, saying, "Thus far the LORD has helped us."  - 1 Samuel 7:12

I've been working on this song from Elevation Church and was encouraged by the testimony from their worship leader:

"The banner over our lives is Jesus. We may try to put our faith in things that may fail us..., but Jesus will never fail, His love will endure forever, His promise is everlasting; He is a faithful King."  - Wade Joye, Elevation Worship

Up to this point in 1 Samuel the Israelites had suffered defeat at the hands of the Philistines.

Point of fact, this was the very place "between Mizpah and Shen", where the arc of the covenant, which represented God's presence in the midst of His people,  was forcibly taken from them in battle (1 Samuel 4:1)

But here we see a new day dawning. The old defeats and personal failures have been overcome by the LORD their helper and God was again in their midst.

Victory  is found in Christ alone; when victory comes, be sure and set the stone.
