  1. “Moses did everything just as the Lord commanded him” (Exodus 40:16). Leading the Israelites was a difficult task, people challenge us beyond our limits every day. Setting up the tabernacle was a defined set of steps that afforded Moses an opportunity to focus. He setup the courtyard and curtains, “and so Moses finished the work” (40:33). A great sense of accomplishment for the assembly. “Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle” (40:34), the work was approved. The Lord led them and honored the work of their hands, the transformation from slaves to holy people truly begins now.

    It’s not important to add who created the items setup in the tabernacle, the names Bezalel and Oholiab are not carved in stone pillars for all to see and remember. Beyond a few verses in Exodus we don’t know these men. But the Israelites knew. In 2 Chronicles we read Solomon’s great words, “Give me wisdom and knowledge” (2 Chronicles 1:10). What I didn’t catch before was the verse just before this, 1:5-6, where Solomon choose to offer sacrifices on the alter built by Bezalel. The legacy survived and I believe God honored their work in many ways. So here I am today, gifted with the ability to develop software, but limited in my ability. Lord, please fill the gap and let me do this work so others my plant churches and build a great revival for this country, for these people in this troubled time. Please put the task before me with great clarity, step-by-step, show me what you would have me do and let it be said that I did everything just as the Lord commanded him. Amen!
