God trains my hands for battle


Exodus 17: 9 “So Moses said to Joshua, "Choose men for us and go out, fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will station myself on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand."


After my encounter with Jesus in the emergency ward of a hospital, my life took a drastic change and affected every area of my life, that’s called ‘born again’ experience. The woman who didn’t know the meaning of ‘ministry’, I stretched out my hands to heaven and asked God to use me, I mean I literally stood like a beggar with my hands stretched towards God, He did train me…….


Moses had just tackled the exasperating problem of the Israelites grumbling for need of water, they cursed Moses saying, “have you brought us up from Egypt, to kill us and our children and our livestock with thirst?" Pretty harsh, this could just shatter any person after all the struggle and pain; however, God gave them water from the rock. Now before Moses could relax after this emotional strain and drama, the Amalekites suddenly attack the Israelites. Bang, one after another! Now you know why I talk a lot on this subject, anybody there?


Besides Moses, there were three people connected in the battle against the Amalekites: Hur, Aaron and Joshua. When Moses held his hand up, Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed, well, the attacks were getting fierce and Moses could not do this alone, he got weary and tired, at this juncture, Hur and Aaron took a stone and put it under Moses, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other, thus Moses hands were steady until the sun set. So Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Hurray!


Please understand here, as soon as you take water baptism and join the Christian circle , you should learn to do spiritual war fare, are you listening? Not many are educated about this, they keep dancing too long, so the enemy very easily and quickly slithers unexpectedly and attacks them. Shrugging off responsibility to pray, fast and read the Word leads to disaster; during the initial days of salvation, I was always looking for prayerful people so that I could join hands with them and pray, my husband is my standard prayer partner.
