“So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed.” (Exodus 17:11). This is the first time the people leaving Egypt would do battle. Joshua may have been an exceptional leader, but he was an inexperienced warrior. This battle was won by the Lord, not Joshua. In every challenge we face, we must depend on the Lord to see us through; left to our own devices, we are sure to lose. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
