And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed – Exodus 17:11

There is just no logical connection between what Moses did with his hands and what Joshua did on the battlefield — yet there it was, whenever Moses’ hands lowered the battle turned for the worse!

I probably would never have noticed, or if I did I would have wasted time trying to logically think it through first. Not Moses or his companions, they were focused on the results; if raised hands worked they would keep them raised.

Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of England during World War Two, had an old saying,

“However beautiful the strategy,
You should occasionally look at the results.”

God is the senior partner, here; he does what he wants the way he wants.

Are there things you do that help or hinder your spiritual growth and victory? Whether there is a logical connection or not, go for what encourages and avoid what hinders.

You can figure out why later after the victory is won.
