Exodus 17:11-13

11 As long as Moses held up the staff in his hand, the Israelites had the advantage. But whenever he dropped his hand, the Amalekites gained the advantage. 12 Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding up his hands. So his hands held steady until sunset. 13 As a result, Joshua overwhelmed the army of Amalek in battle.


The Amalekites are here to attack the Israelites. Moses commands Joshua to choose some men and to go out and fight against the Amalekites. Moses on the other hand is to stand at the top of the hill holding up his staff. The bible records that as long as Moses was holding up the staff, the Israelites prevailed but when he dropped his hand the Amalekites prevailed.

Moses the great man of God, the anointed leader of the Israelites needs help. Yes he has the staff and the anointing but he cannot do it alone. Aron and Hur find a stone on which Moses sits down and the hold up his hands until sunset making it possible for Joshua and his team to overwhelm the Amalekites.

When it comes to ministry, no one can do it alone. Even the anointed ones cannot do it alone. Think of Jesus who could not do it alone, he needed a group of 12 men. Partnerships in ministry are very important. They are the link between winning the battle against the Amalekites or loosing. We are all gifted differently and when we come together we complement each other. The sad reality is that sometimes in the kingdom of God instead of complementing one another we compete against each other. That should not be so.

At Family Media, our hands are growing weary and we are not too proud to ask for help. We are asking you to help hold our hands up through your financial support to help keep Jesus on the airwaves and win the battle against the Amalekites! Will you come on board and help us continue to reach many with the gospel of peace?

Remember Jesus did His part and left us with work to do which we will only fulfill, if we learn to hold up each other’s hands.

We owe it to Jesus!
