In Exodus 17:8-16 we learn an empirical truth; worship is one of our keys to accessing the power of God! Worship is not defined in our posture rather it’s defined by the state of our hearts, minds, and spirits! Worship has to deal with our innermost being and it requires being born again, having a entered mind, and a pure heart. I doubt very seriously that Moses, Aaron, and Hur minds were not centered on God during the battle with Amalek! Y’all know the story!! Moses hands were held up untill sundown while Joshua and the boys defeated Amalek! Now, we may not be waging a physical war with Amalek but everyday we face a raging spiritual war with the various Amaleks in our lives. Amalek is nothing more than our adversary who seeks to steal, kill, and destroy our love, joy, and peace. But when our hearts, minds, and spirits are centered in Christ according to John 10:10, despite the fiery arrows meant to harms us we will experience the abundant life that Christ died to give us! On that day, ‘back in the gap’ Moses and dem built an alter and they named it ‘JEHOVAH NISSI’; THE LORD IS MY BANNER! In the 21 century translation: WORSHIP is our banner of VICTORY! So today commit to worshipping God steadily, unswervingly, unapologetically, and raise the BANNER OF VICTORY OVER YOUR LIFE!!
