chronological day 43 :)

Please read Exodus 35- and Exodus 36. Come on back and let’s visit – what is the Lord speaking to you today from His word?

Moses begins work on the Tabernacle – this is a big project, and it’s all hands on deck!

“Gather from among you an offering for God” (35:5 MSG)

Everyone has a gift to bring – just like in our own lives.  We have a responsibility to give what we can to support furthering the kingdom of God within our sphere of influence. Look at what happened shortly after Moses’ command that they all participate:

All the artisans who were at work making everything involved in constructing the Sanctuary came, one after another, to Moses, saying, “The people are bringing more than enough for doing this work that God has commanded us to do!”

So Moses sent out orders through the camp: “Men! Women! No more offerings for the building of the Sanctuary!

The people were ordered to stop bringing offerings! There was plenty of material for all the work to be done. Enough and more than enough.” (36:4-7 MSG)

Can you imagine being told not to give anymore because so much had come in toward the building of the sanctuary? How encouraging that must have been!  Of course, that would happen if we all did what we could, wouldn’t it?

p.s. Say a quick prayer for your church and pastor this morning, for enough and more than enough!

    I am amazed how Moses went from tongue tied and not able to be a good speaker to someone who is now working closely with GOD. This is proof that within your person is the small voice telling us we can’t measure up but until we are tried we won’t know. I keep this faith in me daily and have Church to go to and refill my holy spirit. I am thankful for the people who are able to give of their heart to support a church where I am able to meet with GOD and get refilled. Yes Jennifer I pray for our church to have abundance and then some!
