And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
-Victory is written as teshuah in Hebrew & it means triumph, win, conquest, success, contention. It can be defined as a success over an enemy in battle or war or an engagement ending in such triumph.
-It was shortly after the Israelites deliverance from the hands of the Egyptians that they were attacked by the Amalekites. Moses knew that the secret of winning the war was to keep his hands lifted in collaboration. He demonstrated that we should fight our battles in prayer with our spiritual hands lifted for when we grow weary the enemies prevails. Just like Amalek was a spirit of destruction; we wrestle against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age & spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places but not flesh & blood (Eph 6:12). We also know that the enemy works through men to bring war & cause destruction in places where there is peace. Moses later built an altar of prayer & praise, & called it The-Lord-Is-My-Banner; for the Lord promised to fight the Amalekites for many generations. We are therefore called to put on the whole armor of God & pray persistently in agreement that we may emerge victorious by the help of the Lord.
Victory belongs to You Lord, we thank You for Your works of grace. We rebuke all the plans of the evil one to destroy our country, our families & that which has been promised in our lives. We proclaim that no weapon fashioned against us & our nation shall prosper in Your name Jesus, that we may have success in all things. You are our Banner Lord, fight for us & give us peace. All glory, power & authority belongs to You Father. Amen
