DCLM Daily Devotional 27 September 2021  MESSAGE:

Some people complain that there are many rules in the word of God – things to avoid and things to engage in – and that such rules are just too difficult for any man to follow faithfully. They prefer a situation where they are free to act as they please, to make choices for God and to expect that the Lord should be just too happy to have them act on His behalf. But they miss one important point: there is only one way, and that is, God’s way.


God had commanded Moses to announce to the children of Israel that they should offer willingly and generously for the construction of the tabernacle. They were to offer gold, silver, brass, rare coloured fine linen, wool, select hide and skin of animals, shittim wood, durable and precious stones. He dictated the specification for the tabernacle and prescribed how to beautify it. It must be overlayed with pure gold. He also handed them the architectural design to follow. And he stressed that Moses must ensure that the tabernacle was constructed in line with the sample God had shown to him in the mountain.

The tabernacle was portable so as to allow ease of conveying it from place to place. Above all, it was for the benefit of the Israelites, as God would dwell in the sanctuary and therefore, in their midst, from where He would commune with them. We cannot serve God on our own terms but follow His dictates. Whatever He prescribes for us is for our good. We can never have better designs for our lives than what He has provided for us.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Obedience draws us closer to God.
