Good morning.

"As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up – one on one side, one on the other – so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword." (Exodus 17:11‭-‬13)

By lifting his staff, Moses symbolically acknowledged God was always with them—and that He alone was in control.

Like Moses, when we find ourselves in a battle we’re ill-equipped to handle, we should look at the situation and observe what’s going on around us, but not let that stop us from holding onto God’s authority and pursuing what He’s promised us.

As the fight continued, Moses’ arms weakened and he could not support the Israelite army without help. That’s when his trusted friends stepped in. By holding him up, they helped Israel achieve victory.

The victories achieved in uncertain seasons are rarely due to our own strength—they’re a result of holding onto God and relying on others to support us. It is the faithfulness of God that sees us through the storms of life.

Whatevet situations are you facing hang on to God and allow trusted people to come alongside you.
