Re: Verse reading–Exodus 25:1-11, 17-18, 23-24, 31-32; 26:1-2, 7-8; 27:1-2; 29:43-46 (day four)
The Lord spoke to Moses and called for the Israelites to bring a contribution for the purpose of building a Tabernacle for Him. But wait…the Israelites have been slaves for over 400 years. How could they possibly have anything to bring as a contribution to the Lord? Remember back to Exodus 12:35-36…God told them to ask the Egyptians for silver, gold, and clothing. God caused the Israelites to have favor in the eyes of the Egyptians and they plundered Egypt. God provided for the needs of the Israelites, even before they knew that they had a need. How often God does that! Before we even know that we have a need, He has prepared a supply. God may move in the heart of someone to provide food in the time of hunger, to provide protection in the time of danger, to provide supply in the time of need, or to send a witness in the time of crisis. God is a sovereign God!
