CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
“So Moses said to Joshua, ‘Choose for us men, and go out and fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.’ So Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought with Amalek, while Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed, and whenever he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the sword.” Exodus 17:9-13
Moses is considered one of the greatest men of faith in the Bible but even he needed help. In the next chapter he gets advice from his father-in-law about leading the Israelites to keep him from being worn out. He was judging all the disputes people were having and it was more than he could bear alone. He ends up appointing other men to help with the task while still being the primary leader. Who do we have around us to hold up our arms when they start to fall? Even the strongest man needs other men around him to help him. If you are not in close relationship with two or three other men that have free reign on your life, that can call you out when your wheels get in the ditch, than seek those relationships. It won’t be easy, because it is not natural to most of us to be open with others, but it is worth the effort.
