God, being a loving Father, always thinks of the big picture. In the Joshua 4 scripture above, He commanded that they stack the stones as a reminder of the miracles they had personally witnessed and experienced.
As you see God bring healing to the areas you release to Him, those markers (cairns) will become your reminder of God’s miracle workings in your life… but it doesn’t stop there! Your steps of faith, obedience, and trust will affect future generations.
There are always people watching to see how we will live out our faith. As a parent, our children are our most diligent observers. When we lay down our stones of pain and offense, we are showing our children how to trust Jesus with their own stones.
Believing with you today that we each have the courage to lay more stones at His feet.
Dear Lord, Help me remember the miracles you have worked in my life in the past. Open my heart to use those as encouragement to trust you with more. I trust you with my wounds today and ask you to reveal yourself to me as healer of my broken heart. As I learn to lay my stones down, let my faith and trust in you be a marker showing my children the way to you. In Jesus name I pray~ Amen
