Exodus 17:10–13 (NKJV)
10 So Joshua did as Moses said to him, and fought with Amalek. And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
11 And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
12 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.
13 So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
Exodus 17:10-13 describes how God wanted Moses to keep his hands in the air for the people of God to see from a distance. As his hands were held up high, the Israelites were winning. As his hands were growing weak and lowering, the enemy began to win. Aaron and Hur each grabbed one hand and lifted Moses hands for him, so that Israel ultimately won the victory.
Eliud Kipchoge, is a Olympian marathon runner, who broke the record, at just under 2 hours! He set his goal and knew he needed to go at a certain pace in order to accomplish that goal. He cycles through a group of pacesetters, with a few other runners with him at the beginning, middle and end of the race. They help him stay on pace. He doesn't go too fast that he wears out later. He doesn't go too slow. However, toward the end of the race, the final group of pacesetters back off and let him go through the finish line alone, to the cheers of the crowd. You can go on YouTube to watch it yourself here.
God uses other people in our lives to help us accomplish our goals. I hope that you have been blessed with other people cheering you on, helping you get further and faster in your goals. However, God wants us to help others, too. As you pray today, ask the Lord to lay on your heart someone who looks up to you, who you can influence. They have such potential. They just need some encouragement. They need someone to lift their arms. God wants to use you today.
