Exodus 38-40 It has been two whole years for the work of the Tabernacle to be completed. In that time, the Israelites have left Egypt, seen the waters of the Red Sea roll back, grumbled, received the Ten Commandments, and were given quail and manna to eat. Yes, God is a provider for every need. In addition, He has given them work to do as they sat at the foot of the mountain. He blessed them with two men to lead the building project with excellence. They did ALL that the Lord commanded.
Now with the work completed, “Moses inspected all the work and they had done it just as the Lord had commanded—they had done it exactly—and Moses blessed them.”[Ex 39:43] God honored their work with the cloud of the Lord on the Tabernacle by day, but fire would be on it at night, in plain view of all the house of Israel throughout all their journeys.[Ex 40:38] Those were visible evidence of His blessing. Later, David would write “Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” [Ps. 119:105] so that we do not mistake which direction to take.
Are we doing all that the Lord commanded? Is He blessing our work? Is His Word our lamp and our light?
