Raising arms in Victory!
Have you ever felt that you just couldn’t go on? Have you ever just thought it would be just easier to quit? Maybe that is what you feel like right now. I think that everyone of us has felt this way at one time or another. But there are some people around us that just seem to be able to fight through the battles with a little more strength then we do, why is that?
These people have found the people in their lives that are willing to lift their hands up in victory. No I am not talking about like after a fighter wins in the cage or if a wrestler wins a match. But people that are willing to support them as they walk through life, these are accountability partners, best friends, bible study leaders. These are the people that you can go to when life is getting to you. These are the people that you can tell your struggles too. These are the guys that will hold up your arms. Check this out:
Exodus 17:12 (NLT) Moses’ arms finally became too tired to hold up the staff any longer. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side, holding up his hands until sunset.
You see Moses needed these guys to hold up his arms so that the battle that was being fought in front of him could be won. What we need is the same thing, we need men in our life that are willing to lift us up and encourage us while we are fighting the battles of life. We need men in our life to be able to support us along the way. Take the time this week to find some men that would be willing to lift your arms up while you are in the middle of a battle. Then talk to them and let them know that you would be willing to do the same for them. Then find a time where you and your team can get together to talk about the battle and how you can support each other. We need to have these kind of men and women in our lives.
