I have been thinking of this Scripture a lot lately. A lot has been happening in my life and I have come to the realization of how important friends are in helping me to accomplish God’s will in my life.
I am a quiet person when it comes to me and sharing. The things that are happening is my life are, I am attending Dallas Theological Seminary (Christian Leadership), and I am a leader of Rock Solid Woman Discipleship Ministry and a leader in the Pastoral Support Team and co-founder of Girl Talk Ministries. All by God’s design as I surrender my plan to walk out His plan. So I really need those special friends around me during this season. I love this crazy season of my life and I would have never imaged or thoughts of this for myself. He knew who I needed for now.
What does it mean to have a Aaron and Hurs in your life? What is it to have this type of support in your life? For me it is unreal, undesirables and I am blessed by them.
So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands were heavy. Then they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. Thus his hands were steady until the sun set. (Exodus 17: 11-12 NASB)
I do not mean just the friendship and fellowship I enjoy with my Brothers and Sisters in Christ. And that is very special to me. But, I mean the importance of those people that I consider the “Aaron and Hurs” in my life.
In the ministry that I lead, I asked the ladies to list their Aaron and Hurs in their lives or are they this person for someone else.
I am so humbled as I have seen the Lord place one and then another beside me as I need the extra support to be obedient in His plans for me. I can feel their prayers and support holding me up when I begin to feel weak and overwhelmed. I can feel their strength added to mine as I battle those forces that would try and stop God’s will from being manifested in my life. Every day they share a word with me via of text, email or phone call. God uses them to meet me just where I am. I am so grateful that I have them in my life.
I pray that everyone has those prayer warriors that will stand on either side of you and help you “hold your arms up” as you battle and press through until you achieve what the Lord is calling you to do during this time. Moses held the staff of God in his hand. I believe he had God’s anointing and authority to win the battle…but he needed help to achieve victory.
We ALL need to join together as the Body of Christ and support and strengthen each other through the power of the Holy Spirit! God’s strength is multiplied as we come together in love and unity to bring about His will and purpose upon this earth. Battles are won as we line-up side by side, arms linked, focusing on the Lord and His plans for the moment. Let’s not get so caught up in the “big picture” that we miss what He wants us to achieve in the next moment! As we face each battle together…walking under the Lord’s Banner…we will see VICTORY!! Hallelujah!
I humbly say “Thank you” to all those that are my “Aaron and Hurs.” I can’t do it without you… and I pray one day I will be that for someone else.
My challenge to you is to find your Aaron and Hurs for your life. Ask God?
