What a Mighty God we serve!!! His unfailing, never-ending, unchanging love desires to break every chain, every addiction, every hinderance in our lives TODAY!!! He is our skilled carpenter, our perfect architect, our great and mighty designer!
There are so many things I wanted to talk about in regard to today’s “Bible in 365” reading, but I felt compelled to focus on a particular message that God is wanting to pour out on His people today. HE IS A GOD OF PURPOSE!!!
Although reading through some of these passages might seam daunting and meaningless, If God put it in His word it reveals His heart, His desire, His truth and PURPOSE!
God cares about every detail! He sees every gold flake made to construct the pieces in His Holy tabernacle. He sees every thread used to make the tent of meeting. He sees every drop of blood that was sprinkled on the alter and on the priest’s garments. Everything that God starts has a purpose, everything that God builds will stand. He who began a good work in you will be FAITHFUL to complete it!
The things God instructed Moses with could not be built by man’s wisdom, man’s intelligence or by their knowledge simply because they were the things of God! God is to be given the glory, for every good and perfect gift comes from Him. Therefore God’s hand had to be orchestrating the construction of it all.
Ex. 31:3,6 “I have filled him [Bezalel] with the Spirit of God with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts..” “Also I have given skill to all the craftsmen to make everything I have commanded you.”
If we have given over our lives to Christ we are new creations and are given those garments that Pastor Sharon wrote about yesterday! In Ephesians 2 it says that the enemy was once at work in us when we were “dead” in our transgressions, our sins. We, by nature, were born into sin and set out to become “his workmanship”, walking in his [the devil’s] ways. BUT BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT LOVE FOR US, BY GRACE, HE MADE US ALIVE WITH CHRIST!!!!!! Hallelujah! No longer are we in the enemy’s hands for him to mold and shape, We’ve been placed in GOD’S PERFECT HANDS so that we would become HIS WORKMANSHIP and do the work He has created us to do!
Do not look at your life as meaningless. Do not look at this season as pointless. Do not view this time as a dead end. Give yourself and your family fully to Him and will He not finish the GREAT WORK He has started in you? Is God a man that He can lie? Does He plant a tree only to uproot it? NO! His promises will stand. His word will prosper. His church will arise. Nothing is random as Pastor Ted preached on Sunday with Fire. He is a God of order and He will rid His people of all injustice and demolish every wall the enemy has put up in front of His people. Trust in His unfailing word. That whatever He puts into motion that NO POWER IN HELL CAN STOP!
