The Lord Is My Banner View video
Exodus 17:8 - 17:16
8. The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim.
9. Moses said to Joshua, "Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands."
10. So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill.
11. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning.
12. When Moses' hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up--one on one side, one on the other--so that his hands remained steady till sunset.
13. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.
14. Then the LORD said to Moses, "Write this on a scroll as something to be remembered and make sure that Joshua hears it, because I will completely blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven."
15. Moses built an altar and called it The LORD is my Banner.
16. He said, "For hands were lifted up to the throne of the LORD. The LORD will be at war against the Amalekites from generation to generation."
Reflection
Displaying Dependence (17:8–16)
Throughout the story of Exodus, the staff in Moses’s hands acts as a physical symbol of God’s presence and power. As the Amalekites attack the Israelites, the joint effort on the part of Aaron and Hur to hold up Moses’ hands throughout the entire battle is an act of faith and dependence on God. Though it is often our first instinct to rely on our own strengths and abilities during times of stress, this will only lead to burnout and failure. In our spiritual battles, let us trust in God’s power while also seeking the help and encouragement of fellow Christians. Rather than view ourselves in competition with other believers, let us carry their burdens with an eager expectation for God to move in their lives. And when we find ourselves on the winning side, we will have all the more reason to give God all the glory for getting us there.

Application
- What battle are you trying to fight on your own and by your own strength? What might dependence on God look like for you in this situation?
A Letter to God
Intercede Together

The World
Panama, located in Central America, is looking to improve the water system in their capital city, Panama City. Through waterline relocation and system improvements, they are hoping to prevent street flooding and provide better odor control. Pray that these improvements will bless the residents of the city, and that the people of Panama would also come to know the living water that only Jesus provides.

The Unreached
The Musi people reside in Indonesia. They are Muslim by tradition, and Islam is considered a part of their cultural identity. This is why they do not allow any places of worship apart from mosques to be built within their communities, and if someone marries a person of another religion, the non-Muslim spouse must convert to Islam. Pray that God will work in their hearts so that the Musi will yearn for and know Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.
