Matthew 24:35
‘Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.’

Who we surround ourselves with is so vital.  It is said that there are two types of people in the world: leaners and lifters.
Leaners are those who drain your strength from you. They will just dump their burdens and loads onto you and are usually very concerned about themselves. When you get together with them you just hear all their issues and problems and they seldom stop long enough to ask you how you are doing.
Lifters have the ability to make your load lighter. They are usually more outward focused and have this ability to lift the load and lighten the burden.
Moses had two lifters. People who were prepared to stand there the whole day and hold his hands up. They were prepared to see the battle through with Moses and not abandon him until victory was achieved.  Look for and surround yourself with people who will do this for you.  Be a lifter yourself. Think about others and how you can help them to succeed. Do what you can to hold up their hands and perhaps you will both end up enjoying the victory that follows.
