Last night we had our year-end function with the leaders of Salem Danville. Fifteen dedicated people that gave up their time to serve the people of Danville!
This made me think of the following Scripture:
11 As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. 12 When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. 13 So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.
Aaron and Hur held up Moses’ hands when he grew tired. James Smith says Aaron signifies "stability," and Hur signifies, "fire or zeal”.
Our leaders held up our hands in 2011 – especially in the times we grew tired. They brought in stability and zeal and they made sure we were sitting on the Rock, Jesus Christ. With Him we overcame the enemy and gained the victory!
The victory belong to the Lord but He will always use people that stand together in unity with one purpose in mind.
Our purpose is to bring His Peace into the broken lives of the Danville people. A job we can never do alone!
Thank you to every leader for helping us fulfilling this purpose of God – you did not only hold up our hands, but you are holding up God’s hands and you bring honor to His name with every victory we gain!
