Weekly Discussion: Exodus Chapters 36-40

Courntey on Good Morning Girls has a good post on the tabernacle from a few weeks ago. And she rightlyful pointed us to the Matthew Henry Commentaryon this that has so much to share as well. (This links to chapter 36, but just click the link at the top to move to the next chapters.) Lastly, we have a post on itas well.

Reading: Exodus 36
Optional GMG Discussion Question:
Do you see how detailed God is? He cared about every minute detail of the temple, down to how many loops were on the curtains to hanging them! How then could He not care about the minor details of your life? Consider for a moment; have you seen His hand lately in a small miracle, provision, or turn of events?

Reading: Exodus 37
Optional GMG Discussion Question:
Imagine for a moment what it must have been like to craft the box where God would dwell. Do you think Bezaleel comprehended the magnitude of the task he had to complete? But God no longer dwells in a box, He dwells in us –His children. Do we truly comprehend the magnitude of that truth? Do we care for His temple as we should?

Reading: Exodus 38
Optional GMG Discussion Question:
Perhaps by now you are feeling bogged down and maybe a little bored with all the details of the temple. But consider for a moment how much care God took to design the place where He would dwell. Is it hitting you yet? How much more care has He taken to design the place where he now dwells-YOU? How much do you think He cares about the minor details of your life? Have you surrendered them to Him yet?

Reading: Exodus 39
Optional GMG Discussion Question:
God is now dressing His priests for service. Later in the Word we read that He has made us kings and priests unto our God. How does He dress us for this priesthood today?

Reading: Exodus 40
Optional GMG Discussion Question:
Imagine what it was like that first day when the Tabernacle was raised and the glory of the Lord filled it. He led them hereon by the cloud of His glory: whether it rested or lifted from the Tabernacle. Are you aware of how He is leading you in your life? Are you able to clearly see or distinguish where He is leading you? What are some ways you sense His leadership in your life today?

Exodus 36

Re; Discussiom Question

I think the building of the ark of the covenant is a great example and reminder of God's attention to detail just as he made the earth. ANd we forget he's apart of the details of our lives. Most of the time I don't think he's that concerned and has bigger fish to fry. But I will say God has been there for me the past couple of  months. For example, on top of my salary I also get commission and this was my first check upon recently joining this company. It's was grossly below what I expected. I had plans to at least pay my doctors bills off as well as other misc things and hopefully plan a trip. Well, somehow I've been having extra $$ at the end of the month and another on of my freelance gigs picked up again. So luckily, I didn't have to rely on that $. It's definitely Gods hand in that always helping me to stay on top. I feel like the more I seek him, the more he steps in for me.

Re; discussion question

I do need to surrender more to God. Lately, I have found myself overthinking things and looking to far ahead into the future instead of making the most of right now, which I'm not the best at. I do think I need to surrender the little things, the big things, the present and the future to HIM. And live a little more at ease and at peace with things.

Re: Weekly Discussion: Exodus Chapters 36-40

Exodus 40

Then the cloud covered the Tabernacle, and the glory of the LORD filled the Tabernacle. Moses could no longer enter the Tabernacle because the cloud had settled down over it, and the glory of the LORD filled the Tabernacle. Now whenever the cloud lifted from the Tabernacle, the people of Israel would set out on their journey, following it. But if the cloud did not rise, they remained where they were until it lifted. (‭Exodus‬ ‭40‬:‭34-37‬ NLT)

This is a great example of Gods leadership. Here, God is so straight forward with the Israelites. Most of the time I find his guidance to be not so in your face. It can feel like a puzzle you're trying to figure out. I will say, more listening and waiting before acting is definitely necessary to allow God to lead especially living in a society where things and life are moving so fast.

God, help us to only act when you say act and slow down to hear you.
