November 25– Exodus 35:30-36:1

November 25– Exodus 35:30-36:1

30 Then Moses said to the people of Israel, “See, the Lord has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; 31 and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, 32 to devise artistic designs, to work in gold and silver and bronze, 33 in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, for work in every skilled craft. 34 And he has inspired him to teach, both him and Oholiab the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan. 35 He has filled them with skill to do every sort of work done by an engraver or by a designer or by an embroiderer in blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen, or by a weaver—by any sort of workman or skilled designer.

“Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whom the Lord has put skill and intelligence to know how to do any work in the construction of the sanctuary shall work in accordance with all that the Lord has commanded.”

I so love that God’s word doesn’t hold back.  We can see how God says clearly that He gives us skill, intelligence, knowledge and abilities with arts and crafts, and these are given to us not only to allow us a way to support our families and for hobbies, but for us to use for His benefit and glory.

What gifts do you have that you currently use in a way that glorifies God?

How can you use intelligence and knowledge to glorify Him?

Why do you think God gave you the specific gifts you have?

Heavenly Father, I want to glorify you in every way I can, and I love that you gave me things I enjoy that can also glorify You.  You are such an amazing God!  Thank You for the many gifts You have given us and the many ways we can show our love to You.  I am so amazed and humbled by how much You love me.  I know I don’t deserve Your love.  I don’t deserve anything good, but You are not ony a God of grace, but of mercy and give Your love freely, even to those, like me, who don’t deserve it.

In Jesus’ name.
