“We must never rest until everything inside of us worships God.” –A.W. Tozer
While Moses and Israel sojourned to the promise land, the Amalek Army attacked them. Moses instructed his protégé Joshua to take Israel to war with Amalek. If Israel would win however, this depended on Moses keeping his hands up on the mountaintop. Conversely they would begin to lose if he let his hands down. Notice Moses didn’t raise his hands up after Israel won, but while they were still fighting. Likewise, despite how bleak a circumstance appears, in spite of what you are facing, keep your hands and heart in a posture of praise. Worship God with all your might. Remember people are depending on you, God is fighting for you, and wars are won when you worship.
…and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe (Hebrew 12:29, NLT).
