Hanging In Here

So Joshua did what Moses had commanded and fought the army of Amalek. Meanwhile, Moses, Aaron, and Hur climbed to the top of a nearby hill. As long as Moses held up the staff in his hand, the Israelites had the advantage. But whenever he dropped his hand, the Amalekites gained the advantage. Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding up his hands. So his hands held steady until sunset. As a result, Joshua overwhelmed the army of Amalek in battle.
– Exodus 17:10-13

On any given day, if you ask me how I’m doing I’ll probably answer with some version of “hanging in here.”

The other day my sweet friend came back with an answer that made me think of this passage.

“Your arms get tired from all that hanging,” she replied.

Indeed they do. They really do.

But our God is a God of details, remember? It was no accident that Aaron and Hur climbed that hill with Moses. God knew they’d be needed.

He knew you’d be needed in my life, as well.

Not that I’m Moses, by any means, but we all need a little help sometimes to keep going, don’t we? To keep hanging on?

You make that possible.

So thank you, each of you, who hold my arms up when they get heavy. Who drag over a rock for me to sit on. Who ensure the victory.

You’re doing exactly what God intended for you to do, and you’re amazing at it.

Heavenly Father, You are simply an astounding provider. Thank You for each heart reading this, and their willingness to do their part. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
