Read Joshua 3
When all Israelites crossed the Jordan river, God asked Joshua to call twelve people from each tribe so that they took a stone in the middle of the Jordan river. re generation the meaning of it.
Twelve stones that twelve people picked in the middle of the Jordan river represented twelve tribes of Israel who crossed the Jordan river. They set them up at Gilgal as the sign what God had done for them (v.22-23). It was a memorial marker for them to be reminded of their experiencing God at the Jordan, and for their descendants to learn what God has done for their ancestor. Twelve stones were sign of the powerful hand of God so that they would always remember God.
When we have specific experience of the work of God during our life journey, and we make memorial marker, then it reminds us of the experience and helps us to grow in faith of God.
