Exodus 27-28, Matthew 14
Two things amazed me here in Matthew:
1. When Jesus heard about John the Baptist, he withdrew to be alone, seemingly deeply saddened. Yet when we came back shore, “he saw a large crowd, had compassion on them, and healed their sick”. Even through Jesus’ hurt and pain, he continued to heal and give to others. Glory be.
2. I was amazed that even after Peter himself walked in water, that he doubted the Lord. He was WALKING ON WATER and it still wasn’t enough. “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”
Lord, may I never doubt who or what You are, to myself or to others. I am Your child and You are my Father. May I praise you again and again!
“O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” How often we could say this to ourselves when we doubt and hem later truly call out and cast our fears into the Lord, only to realize he has had our back the entire time.
31Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him, saying to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”
May we also remember we are consecrated and set apart, holy to the Lord to be vessels of mercy that bring glory to His name. May we not profane ourselves by dedicating ourselves to things not glorifying to God.
The detail the colors the ornaments all must represent glory. Gods vision is glorious. Oh how I would love to see these robes and tabernacle. Just looking at the landscapes, sunsets, even the cloud formation against a royal blue sky, explains the artistry in our God vision, so beautiful and detailed.
And when Jesus learns of his cousin, His pain was keep in solitary, reaching for God for strength. And He continued to reach out and heal the people with their needs. Creating miracles satisfying thousands. Our God, He is a giving God full of love and meaningful beauty. I am so thankful and feel so blessed and see His beauty everywhere I go.
There has to be something to all this detail in Exodus. Down to the last thread God designed His tabernacle and temple. He even detailed what the priest should wear. Could it be the same way he is going to prepare a place for us?
