THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: ARE U HOLDING YOUR PASTOR UP?

THOUGHTS FROM JACKIE: ARE U HOLDING YOUR PASTOR UP?

Exodus 17:8 Then Amalek came and fought against Israel at Rephidim. 9 So Moses said to Joshua, “Choose men for us and go out, fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will station myself on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.” 10 Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought against Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11 So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands were heavy. Then they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. Thus his hands were steady until the sun set. 13 So Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.

Just as the hands of Moses Israel’s pastor/set man/leader needed support,so does your pastor. Your pastor goes through all of the same temptations and trials you do. In fact he faces much more than you do. Satan wants to shut him up. If the devil can stop your pastor, or distract your pastor, he can keep God’s Words from getting to you (I Corinthians 1:21). If demons can discourage your pastor it will kill the vision for the church & people (Hebrews 13:7,
1 Timothy 2:1-2). While the pastor holds a high position in the Kingdom of God, he also has the biggest target on his back. Your prayers are so critical. Holding up your pastor in any way you can give it, is vital to your own success as a Christian.
