Do you remember this story? I was reading this passage today and it occurred to me we need friends like Aaron and Hur. These two men held up Moses’ arms when he was too tired to continue.
The Israelites were in a heated battle with the Amalekites. When Moses held his staff, raise toward heaven, they dominated the battle. When Moses tired and his arms dropped from sheer exhaustion, the people began to lose ground.
We need friendships such as Aaron and Hur because there will come a time when we can’t walk a step further without help from someone.
I have found such friends right here in our Christian online community. Men and women whom God sends along at precisely the right moment, They hold my arms up high and pray for me.
I also am encouraged by a Godly kinship through the 1Peter3Living study group. This week we have been discussing the unique issues of attending church alone. Thank you my friends. My arms were tired and you always encourage me.
Do you need to be an Aaron or a Hur for for someone today? Pray right now for that person. Tell them you did.
Be blessed, Lynn

Lynn has wonderfully mapped out the steps we all need to walk through to develop and grow this vital relationship with Him. This was the Lord’s intent for her transformation journey all along, and His intent for you too. Here she has spelled out the spiritual truths behind the principles and talked us through how she applied them. These truths are universally applicable to us all, though as the details of our lives, situations and hearts will be different, we will apply them differently. - Reader Review from Barnes & Noble.
