Today's Scripture: "And you shall raise up the tabernacle according to its pattern which you were shown on the mountain." Ex 26:30

5786. You can't follow instructions you don't know. JG


See it.


Live it.

No matter what you're doing today, it began with a vision, was accomplished by taking steps of action to complete it. In a perfect world a vision is the way everything should begin, but most of the time we inherit someone else's vision. For one reason or another, it's never on time or worse yet, may never get done. Today's Scripture reminds us that there was a pattern of the tabernacle given to Moses by God when they met face to face. It was Moses's job to stay focused, the people's job to follow instruction.

How about you? God's word is our pattern book. Do you know its patterns and are you conforming to them? Have you established steps of action to execute them and are you checking them off daily to stay focused? If your answers are negative, think about this: if Moses had your attitude, what would have happened to the people God called him to lead? Could it be that the sad state of our churches is a reflection of our failure to know and follow God's established pattern?

Pray it.

Thank you, God, for loving me the way I am, but too much to leave me that way.
