Moses was given the responsibility of building the tabernacle according to what God had revealed to him. How would he accomplish this task having never been taught how to be a craftsman? That wasn’t something he learned from his mother. He certainly wasn’t taught anything close to it in the palace of the Pharaoh’s where he was brought up, and in the desert, his business was tending the sheep of his father-in-law. How could he handle such a delicate and precise work? God had the answer. Not only did God give Moses the vision, but He also provided the people and resources to accomplish the work, and when it was all said and done, they had more than enough (Ex. 35-36).

I don’t know what you have been tasked to do. The assignment, the vision, the dream that God has placed in you, may seem overwhelming and a whole lot bigger than anything you have ever done. Do not be frightened by the enormity or the lack of skills that you may possess. God’s plans are always bigger than us, way over our head, and beyond our experience. He thinks in God-size portions. But He also divinely orchestrates, commands, and bring into existence everything needed for the finished product. Remember the word to Moses, “Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you” (Ex. 25:9). The tabernacle was to be made according to the heavenly pattern. You cannot supplement for what God orders. Stay with his plan, let him equip you, and use the resources He chooses and sends to you. God has it all already figured out.

Be blessed!
