Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
Exodus 17:8-13 (KJV)
Here we can see a peculiar strategy for the victory over Amalek. Climbing mountain is a symbol of fasting and waiting on the Lord in prayers. Aaron and Hur holding up Moses hands symbolizes prayer and fasting support. It symbolizes agreement. Helping lift up spiritual burdens from the shoulders of leaders is the primary responsibility of the leadership assistants. Spiritual weights are real and can be heavier than physical weights. Blessed are the leaders whom God surrounded with Aarons and Hurs
