Summary: God promised some blessing - some time it does not seems like blessing but later we will know that it was His blessing.
Unusual blessing for a believer. Ex. 17:8-16
1. The battle with the enemy Ex. 17:8-10

Every fight makes you who you are.
2. The blessing of Prayer Ex. 11:12

Prayer is needed
Prayer is not the last thing it must me the first

3. The presence of Believers by your side for encouragement. Ex. 17:12
Standing beside and giving the encouragement during your battle.
Aaron and Hur stood by Moses when he was weary and tried.

Paul had a Silas
4.The Book of Memorial Ex. 17:15-16
Write it in the book of memory and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua (make sure Joshua hear it)

It reminds you that “yes we can”
5. The Banner of Victory Ex. 17:15-16
Exodus 17:15-16 (AMP)
15 And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The Lord is my Banner;
16 And he said, Because [theirs] is a hand against the throne of the Lord, the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
It is the banner of the Lord
It is the banner of Victory
It reminds His presence
He is the Lord of Battle
This is not your battle you are following some one who is the Champion.
