Exodus 17:10 “So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.”
Exodus 17:11 “And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed”
In our previous meditation, we saw that Moses holding up his hand connotes prayer and praise but I want us to consider another dimension to it. The Hebrew word used for “held up” means “to rise”, “rise up”, “rise above” and “be high”.
Friend, to defeat your enemies and stay victorious, you must rise above them. If you decide to fight your enemies on this plane or zone of life you will lose. The enemy has been around for long on this planet and he knows the ins and outs more than any of us. Any attempt to confront him here will spell doom.
Every time you stay at the same level with your enemies they’ll defeat you. You must rise above them and stay above them. I’m not saying you must leave this planet to confront the enemy, I’m simply saying you don’t use the weapons of the flesh to confront the enemy. Our fight must be both strategic and tactical. You must know how to win your battles from the top!
How do I rise above my enemies, you may ask? You rise above them in your thoughts and mind. No wonder the bible says:
Colossians 3:1 “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.”
Colossians 3:2 “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”
Colossians 3:2 “Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ–that’s where the action is. See things from his perspective.” (MSG)
Paul like Moses understood this principle so well.
