Key Verse: Exodus 26:30

And you shall raise up the tabernacle according to its pattern which you were shown on the mountain.

 

The Tabernacle was the place in which God was present in a special way. We, the believers, are now His special dwelling place on earth. The Apostle Paul quotes the Hebrew Scriptures to drive home this point (2 Corinthians 6:16). God gave an exact design for the Tabernacle with precise measurements, using specific materials. For example, He gave such attention to detail in the instructions for making and hanging the curtains. The veil which separated the Holy of Holies from the rest of the Tabernacle shows us that we are separated from God. Remember that when Jesus died, the veil was torn from top to bottom so that there is no longer any separation for those that believe in Jesus (read Matthew 27:50-53).

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Dear Lord Jesus, please help me to be diligent to follow Your instructions for building my life. Thank You that I am Your modern-day tabernacle. I need to know Your plans for me, and I thank You for the grace and discipline to read and follow Your instructions most carefully. In Your Name I pray, Lord Jesus. Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

From the time our son Ron was six or seven, he was the designated instruction reader in our family when something arrived that needed assembling. Come to think of it, he is the first one to read my daily blogs too before they are posted for you, the reader. I’ve received much practical help from Ron and his wife Ann. I’m embarrased to tell you that I complain while I’m up on the step stool trying to hang a picture right while Norma-Jean is giving the instructions. I’m even more embarrased to confess to you that I have often complained to God about His instructions for the details of my life. Sorry, Lord!! I’ve asked God’s forgiveness in the past and I, no doubt, will do so in the future. Also, Norma-Jean, I’ve asked your forgivness in the past for complaining, and if we move again and I’m able to get up on that step stool, I’ll probably have to ask your forgiveness again. I love you!

Yours for following the instructions,

David

  1. Father, this is Your world. Guide us today and give us the wisdom we need to live as children of the living God. Help our children also to give their lives to You, in Jesus’s name, amen

  2. Thank you Lord for the beautiful and precise ways in which You lead us to Your Son, Jesus. Today’s reading was no exception. May we always follow Your loving instructions and not depart from The Way. May Your Holy Spirit touch the hearts of those who don’t know You and may they come to be part of Your Kingdom.
    Bless each one of us and may we be a blessing to others.

  3. Father, in Jesus Name, I have an unspoken prayer and You know the need. It is difficult for people living in this time. Please give us Wisdom and Direction and Your Strength as we walk this earth. Medical help & so much needed help in other areas is hard to access. Bless the lady who needs a special touch from You – her change in character is upsetting & I wonder if she’s mentally alright. Thank You Lord. Amen
