Holding Each Other Up

As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Mosesí hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held up his hands-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 (NIV)

God was with Moses throughout his entire life. Most times Moses listened to God, but there were times when he took things into his own hands and things went terribly wrong. Using his own wisdom, Moses killed an Egyptian guard. Moses also decided to strike a rock his own way and not the way God had instructed him to. Moses paid dearly for this act of self will. Because Moses did not follow Godís instruction, he was not permitted to enter the Promised Land. Knowing Moses would need help, God provided people to help him. The Bible verse I have shared with you is an awesome example of two men being there, to literally hold Moses up while Joshua led the battle against the Amalekite army. There are many examples throughout Moses life where God provided Moses with much needed help.

In order to win this battle, Moses had to hold up his arms. When Moses arms were up the battle was being won, if he lowered his arms the battle would be lost. God provided Aaron and Hur to hold Mosesí tired arms up in the air all night so that the Israelites could prevail in their battle. Moses was not alone, God provided these men to help him. At this exhausting time Moses did not have to carry the responsibility alone.

I have had times when I have been physically, emotionally and spiritually drained. How about you? I have had times where I felt I could go no further during lifeís tough situations. I learned by going to God that he would always put friends, family and loved ones in my life to hold me up. I havenít had to deal with anything on my own, as long as I am conscious of the presence of God. I have always been blessed with people surrounding me, and like Moses, they held my arms up in the air so I could prevail. No matter what you are going through, allow others to hold you up, you donít have to go through struggles alone. Go to God and go to the people God has put in your life. Letís hold each other up.

God Bless
