Preacher: Daniel Hiester

Psalm 33:16-17

The best-equipped army cannot save a king, nor is great strength enough to save a warrior. Don’t count on your warhorse [horsepower] to give you victory— for all its strength, it cannot save you.

Exodus 17:9

“Choose some men to go out and fight the army of Amalek for us. Tomorrow, I will stand at the top of the hill, holding the staff of God in my hand.” 

Exodus 17: 10-13

Joshua did what Moses had commanded and fought the army of Amalek. Meanwhile, Moses, Aaron, and Hur climbed to the top of a nearby hill.  As long as Moses held up the staff in his hand, the Israelites had the advantage. But whenever he dropped his hand, the Amalekites gained the advantage.”  ​​​Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up.  So, Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding up his hands. So, his hands held steady until sunset.  As a result, Joshua overwhelmed the army of Amalek.

Psalm 33:20-21

We put our hope in the Lord. He is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.​​​

Prayer is what tips the balance in the battle.
