God’s room—The Holy of Holies, the place where God hung out. As the Israelites prepared the Tabernacle, the accessories of the Holy of Holies were the finest and the most beautiful. The quality, the materials and the care with which they were created–showed the reverence and the value the people placed on God’s presence in their camp, as well as, in their lives.
Each implement was unique, but made with the same care and craftsmanship. Their creators were as committed to their final outcome–as the ultimate creator was with ours. One can only imagine the shear focus the craftsman displayed in creating these pieces.
Wouldn’t be great, if God’s people showed the same excitement and excellence in making Him welcome in our time. If we showed the same reverence and attention to his comfort as the craftsman of the Tabernacle did, there would be little doubt in whose we were; and the love we have for him. In this season, we need to reflect on the priority we assign to having God’s presence in our life. If, we want to truly make a difference, then join me in making God as welcome in your life—as these folks made him in the Tabernacle.
God Bless You
