But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
The war at Rephidim was a proven evidence that each member gave a very important contribution to gain victory over the Amelikites. Teamwork brings victories, shapes history, and blesses members with a heavenly attitude and spirit. People who work together to accomplish God’s work will witness results that are powerful and unexplainable.
The people of Amalek came and fought with the people of Israel in Rephidim. This was the first war recorded after Israel left Egypt. Amalek was very deceitful and tried to attack Israel from behind rather than face to face. Amalek attacked Israel when they were weak and tired. Amalek represents the most deceitful enemy that we have: the devil. He walks around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. He knows our weaknesses and waits for us to let down our guard. This is why we need each other working together for the same purpose and for the Lord.
As Christians we need each other. We need others when we are weak in faith and others need us when they are weak in their faith. Together we can continually build each other up and strengthen each other for the battles that we face everyday. Church unity and involvement produces greatness in the work of God. Everyone is unique and everyone is needed. We should be using our God-given talents and gifts to please God and give light in the dark world we live in.
Father, give us eyes to see who needs our assistance and equip us for the next task.
