This morning, please read Exodus 39:32-43, Exodus 40, and Numbers 9:15-23. Lots going on! Let’s visit!
“Moses did everything God commanded. He did it all” (40:16 MSG)
Do you see a theme developing? Moses is obedient! Moses did it ALL, and completed the work – even to arranging the furniture. Sometimes we get weary at the end of a project and we lose steam on “little details”, but Moses finished strong – that’s an example!
Of course, it isn’t time to stop – the cloud and fire come on the day the Dwelling was set up:
“Moses finished the work. The Cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the Glory of God filled The Dwelling. Moses couldn’t enter the Tent of Meeting because the Cloud was upon it, and the Glory of God filled The Dwelling.
Whenever the Cloud lifted from The Dwelling, the People of Israel set out on their travels, but if the Cloud did not lift, they wouldn’t set out until it did lift. The Cloud of God was over The Dwelling during the day and the fire was in it at night, visible to all the Israelites in all their travels” (Numbers 9:15-16 MSG)
One job finishes, another begins. We have to keep moving forward with the Lord!
