Thinking about this AO and the creek with blocks and stones in the middle reminded me of the following scripture:
Joshua 4:1-7
When the whole nation had finished crossing the Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua, “Choose twelve men from among the people, one from each tribe, and tell them to take up twelve stones from the middle of the Jordan, from right where the priests are standing, and carry them over with you and put them down at the place where you stay tonight.”
So Joshua called together the twelve men he had appointed from the Israelites, one from each tribe, and said to them, “Go over before the ark of the Lord your God into the middle of the Jordan. Each of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, to serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.”
We all have places in our lives when God has shown up in a big way. When He has done the impossible. When He has revealed Himself and His Glory. We all have memorial stones that are a monument to the goodness of God and what He has done. When we are in the deep waters, when the river is raging, when the currents are swift, when we lose our footing in the riverbed, when we feel the waters rushing over our head, that is when we need to hold fast to the memorial stones in our lives. Hold on and remember who God is, what He has done and what He will do.
That passage brought to mind another scripture.
Proverbs 22:28
Do not move the ancient landmark
that your fathers have set.
Do not forget your history with God and your walk with Him. Remember when He has provided for you, remember when He has made a path for you. Remember when He has shown up in your life.
Ancient landmarks were often stones used to mark property boundaries, which reminded me of this quote from Dutch theologian Abraham Kuyper:
“There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!”
Each of us is marked with a memorial stone that reminds us that we belong to Christ, that we were purchased with a price and there is no area in our lives where He is not sovereign. Do not remove the property boundaries over your life. It all belongs to Him, and He is faithful over all of it, in the good times and also in the bad times.
