Thought For Today


Exodus 17:9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Am'-a-lek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.

Exodus 17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Am'-a-lek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.

Exodus 17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, the Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Am'-a-lek prevailed.

Exodus 17:12 But Moses' hands were weary; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

If Aaron and Hur had not been there to stay up Moses' hands, (Hold up) then the children of Israel would not have won the battle against Am'-a-lek. Joshua and his men would have been defeated! Is there someone in your life that is your Aaron and Hur, someone that supports you and lifts you up when you become weary during battle? Do you support others and lift them up when times and circumstances become tough, are you someone's Aaron or Hur? Be careful about who you let down, it could mean the difference between winning a battle as children of God working together, or losing that battle to the enemy because someone became weary and you didn't support them, support your true God fearing leaders, brother's and sisters that rightly divide the word of God. Be cautious however, support only those that can back up their words with scriptures!! Do not support those that preach the world, or those that take the word of God and change it to their liking. These kind of people are false prophets, and teachers, if someone is tickling your ears, or anyone elses ears, steer clear of them because they are not of God!!
