Working Together to get it Done! In His Word 2021

This one is from way back in 2010, it stood out to me today and I hope you enjoy it as one of my 21 days of Daily posts! May you be blessed today as you work together in His Word! 

 In His Word 11-15-10


Do you ever feel like you have fought the good fight and you are ready to stop fighting?

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

 1 Timothy 4:7

Rise up! Even Moses had to have arm bearers! Jesus had his team and we need ours! No one can do it all by themselves; no matter how strong we think we are.

Look back to the  Old Testament;

Adam needed Eve.

Moses needed Aaron.

Joshua had a friend in Caleb.

David had Jonathan.

Naomi had Ruth.

I could go through the whole Bible and name off all those in His Word that needed a partner in the plan. The fact is we have Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Father God on our side. He is here to help us through whatever we are going through.

Physically we have friends, or co workers to help us get through a project, or problem successfully. We do not need to give up on ourselves; we can give it up to God!

Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. Genesis 1:29.

God gave Adam food, but it wasn’t enough. He needed a relationship with someone like himself.

He needed a friend, and helper. He gave Adam Eve and she led him to be weaker, sometimes our friends are not strong and we need to stand stronger for them and not allow them to pull us down.


So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill.  As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning.  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.  So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword. Exodus 17:10-13


We need to surround ourselves with people who will hold us up when we are weak in the battle. That we may stand strong for those who need us to be strong. Aaron and Hur held Moses up as long as the army needed to see him to fight for them victory.

Sometimes we need to appear strong for our friends; we need to stand so that they will know we are there for them. Sometimes we need that friend who is there to lean on, to have support from our friend until the end of whatever trial or struggle we may be going through.

We need to be able to be humble enough to ask for help.

Moses tried and tried, but kept growing tired. Aaron stepped up and took Hur with him to give him a hand.

Two things that really stand out to me in those scriptures is that; 1) Moses needed the help. 2) Aaron was there for him, so was Hur. God knew they would be and so He sent them to Moses.


Moses did his best and left the rest to God. He did what he knew to do. God sent a team to keep him up, to push on to the end of the job. Then Moses left this world, and the team pressed on without him. Joshua took the lead, he brought the army of God, and the 12 tribes of Israel to their lands following the vision God had given Moses. Though Moses could not go through to live the vision to its end; God brought him to the edge and set up a team to work the job the way it was planned.

Sometimes we have to pass the staff to someone else, or like with Elijah and Elisha pass the mantle on.  


So he departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him. 1 Kings 19: 19


Elisha was working, at the job God had put him in when the mantle was tossed on him. He did not go seeking for it, but he did accept it.

When he realized what God could do he asked for a double portion!

When God has a plan, he will carry it through whether with you, or the person or persons he sends after you to complete the work. The race will be run, it will be completed.

Think of it like a relay race. Pass the baton on to the next runner that they may pass it to the next runner. Sometimes we want to hold on to a job, or position, and stay where we stood last year even when we are not getting anywhere. If God moves us, we need to go. We need to trust that He will direct our path.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for sending us helpers, those who will get the job done. Thank you for teams that work together to complete the task and thank you for directing our paths so that we will know that things will work together for Your good. We love you Lord. In Jesus name, amen.

***If for any reason you choose ever not to receive this devotion again please remember that all it takes is replying with a "Please remove me from this list." I do ask that if there is a problem with anything I write for you to feel free to write me back and let me know what the problem was, that we might go over it together and seek the truth in love.

In His love,
