Exodus Chapter 17
1 And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.
3 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?
6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
12 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.

My pastor spoke on this chapter in service yesterday. It blessed me, so I thought I'd share it. He said Aaron (being a priest) represented the Word of God, and Hur represented praise. That is what held Moses up on both sides when he was weary! Jehovah-nissi ... my banner! He encouraged us to stay under the banner and to hold up the blood stained banner of Christ!

Verse 2~The people were arguing with Moses, but they were really putting Jehovah God to the test. This shows the importance of having faith in God and respecting his representatives.
