Exodus (4)

Our Bible Reading today tells us about another time when God helped the Israelites defeat their enemies.

The Amalekites fought against Israel. So Moses told Joshua to take some men and go fight the Amalekites. At the same time, Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of a hill. “Any time Moses held his hands in the air, the men of Israel would start winning the fight. But when Moses put his hands down, the men of Israel began to lose the fight” (verse 11).

Soon Moses’ arms became tired. So Moses sat on a rock, and Aaron and Hur held Moses’ hands in the air. That is how the Israelites defeated the Amalekite army.

You are probably not fighting a military battle today. But you may be facing health problems, unpaid bills or family troubles. Moses and the Israelites relied on God. If you will rely on God, too, He will help you face your problems and give you peace.
