Exodus 17:8-14  (NIV)
The Amalekites Defeated
8 The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. 9 Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.” 10 So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill. 11 As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. 12 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. 13 So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword. 14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this on a scroll as something to be remembered and make sure that Joshua hears it, because I will completely blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven.”


“What did Moses record that Joshua was to remember?” “For what reason did Moses do this?”


Holy God, You are mighty and powerful and in control and I am not. Help me to keep my eyes and ears open to where You are actively performing miracles around me every single day. During my quiet time bring them to my mind so that I can record them to remember the wonderful things that You do. For in the days when I am weak, afraid or angry, I can review the long list of amazing things You have shown me and the assurance that if You have been there in the past You are here now and will be forever present to help me. With You all things are possible and I can trust in You. Thank You Lord. Amen
