The Israelites built an altar of twelve stones when they crossed the Jordan. Elijah built an altar of twelve stones when he was in a competition with the prophets of Baal. The twelve stones represent the twelve tribes of Judah. The altars are memorials of God's faithfulness. When we get into certain situations, we may find it hard to remember what God has already done. We can't see the forest for the trees. We can't see past our own circumstances. We can't see beyond our own pain and disappointment, but God is still faithful. We just need to remember that God is a faithful God. What altars have you built in your life to remind you of God's faithfulness? If you haven't built an altar, I challenge you to build one, as a reminder of not only what God has done, but what he continues to do in your life. Remember!
