Exodus 39

One comment on “Exodus 39”

  1. “So the people of Israel followed all of the Lord’s instructions to Moses. Then Moses inspected all their work. When he found it had been done just as the Lord had commanded him, he blessed them.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭39‬:‭42‬-‭43‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    What an enormous amount of work in preparing practically what the Lord God had asked for. There is that great long list of all the items for inspection: did they breathe a sigh of relief when it passed and was approved by Moses? What about us today? Do I have the perspective that I am working for God’s approval? What does that mean for me? We often talk about not having to WIN God’s approval and yes, we are his children by faith in Jesus, members of God’s family across all the tribes of earth. However when we live in His Kingdom then whatever we do or say is to be done out of reverence for Jesus. Not to please others but to know his joy in us. To sense our Father’s pleasure in our trust and obedience.

    I was struck too by the names of the tribes of Israel being inscribed on the onyx stones, and also the precious stones representing each of them that Aaron would carry on his chest piece before the Lord. Who do I as a priest of God carry into His Presence? Even if I hardly know what to pray for those precious to me, He sees them as I come to Him. Let’s all be encouraged as we hold them before the Lord and ask that they too will be deemed righteous. I think this is a beautiful picture of intercession. He sees those dear to us. He knows best of all what they need. We need simply hold them before Him in His presence.
