It’s hard to be strong alone…

Exodus 17:12 

Moses’ arms finally became too tired to hold up the rod any longer; so Aaron and Hur rolled a stone for him to sit on, and they stood on each side, holding up his hands until sunset. 
… it helps to be held up when your strength is gone.

When it comes to picking sides, choose to be on God’s side rather than expecting God to be on your side.

Joshua 5:13

Now it came about when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand, and Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us or for our adversaries?”

Acknowledge that God is in charge of the situation.
