"But Moses' hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his hands were steady until the going down of the sun."
In my line of work, I use my hands a lot. I use them to hold the weights. I use them to make products, I use them for my commercial business and I use them for healing, researching, defending, and survival. Our hands are always in the survival and work mode. I think we don’t take in account that they grow weary. We don’t realize that until we need assistants to help us hold onto something, hold up something and most importantly, to willingly, let go of something. We can become weary, lose the strength in our hands and find that its too difficult to “Hold up the Banner of God”. I don’t want to not be able to hold up God’s Banner, because I’ve become too weary from fighting in my own strength instead of letting God fight for me. He wants us to take a rest, relax your hands in faithfulness and let Him fight for you. We don’t let ourselves relax and rejuvenate. We are in constant fight mode. Our fists are always ready. Until one day, they will hurt from the battle. They will knot up from the tension, they will start to lose form and shape and strength. We call that, arthritis.
