(Exo. 17:12) “But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.”
Even as Aaron and Hur held up Moses’ hands in the battle with the Children of Israel and the Amalekite’s until victory was assured, there aren’t too many men that will stay with you until the battle is won. Oh yes, they may start out with you, but as the fight gets tougher, as life begins to get the best of them, as the leader begins to take their own beatings and struggles in life many will leave you right in the middle of a heated fight. But God is looking for some Aaron’s and Hur’s, men/women who will stay with us until the battle is won.
Saints of God it’s like a Christian ministering salvation to a drug addict: Yes you lead them to Christ, but salvation was only part of the fight. Are you willing to stay in the fight until they get free from drugs? Are you willing to take the late night phone calls when they are being tempted to snort again but they call you for prayer? Are you willing to get them the help they need when it’s beyond your level of expertise to handle the situation? Are you willing to sacrifice your own personal time, efforts and energies to see the brother/sister not only get saved but get delivered from the grip of drug addiction? Are you willing to stay with them until the victory is assured? In essence that’s what Aaron and Hur did in Moses’ life.
They were his support staff, and they remained until victory was won. We need Christians that will stay until the battle is won! We need Christians who will stay with the leadership in good and bad times unless you clearly hear the Lord saying to do otherwise! We need Christians that will translate sinners from the prayer of salvation to deliverance, because getting a man saved is only half the battle. It’s deliverance that will set him free and keep him free.
God Bless You
