I’ve shared this before and I think it’s good enough to share again. I believe we all need someone to be there to encourage us when we are down and at our weakest moment. When we’re unable to fight our battle alone having great family and friends to be there to lift us up. The bible says in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 that two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor and if either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. So God encourages us to support each other. We have all had moments that we were weak and because we had someone to support us and it got is through. Moses faced that same situation in the scripture below.
Exodus 17:11-13 NIV
As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. 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. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.
So let us never under estimate the power of encouragment that we all have!!! So be that family, friend you would like others to be to you.
