The what, how and why

Sometimes we read a story in the Bible and think huh?!
Try this one.

Read Exodus 17:8-13 –

It’s pretty clear what happened. Joshua and his troops crushed the army of Amalek. The ‘how‘ is obvious. As long as Moses held up the staff with his hands, the Israelites had the advantage. But do you know why?

I bet you know that answer too. So where is the ‘huh’? Well, that’s the thing. This story is straight forward, like its lesson.

Do your part but rely on God. Use the weapon of prayer daily and give God the glory for your victories.

Sometimes following Jesus is that simple.
