Make everything according to the Lord’s pattern
Exodus 25:40 NLT
‘“Be sure that you make everything according to the pattern I have shown you here on the mountain.’
God gave Moses the precise instructions of how to build His tabernacle the way that was pleasing to Him so that He could live among them in this holy sanctuary. Moses did exactly as God commanded right down to the minute details. His obedience to follow these instructions meant that the presence of God was powerful and strong in this holy residence.
Has God commanded you to make something: a building, a book, a painting or a business? Has He given you a framework to build it, a pattern or structure of how He would like you to do it?
Don’t compromise when others tell you how they think you should go about your assignment, or what you think will be successful and may make more money.
Do it God’s way, exactly how He showed you in your secret time, on the mountain top. Then you can be sure that the presence of God will reside throughout your building, your project or your organisation and He will certainly bless what your hands have made.
“If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands…the Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands.” Deut 28:1,12 (NIV)
