So Moses Finished The Work…

God does what He wants, when He wants and we are subject to His changes in plan. We are to continue to wait on the Lord even when our entire body, mind and all that we know says to move. We sit still.

Moses kept all the commands of the Lord but was frozen in place as the tabernacle was made ready. The Tabernacle of Moses is dressed on the day that God commanded. All the component parts are made, to order, brought the location to be built and everything is made ready just as commanded by God.

And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.
Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys: but if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys. ~ Exodus 40:33-38 KJB

The Holy Bible doesn’t say, in this chapter, what happens next. It is unclear why God has blocked Moses from entering the Tabernacle that He, God, has just ordered built, at this sight on this specific day. All commands were fulfilled by Moses and the Israelites with a “willing heart”, completed all task. But still God, basically, says “wait”.

Is this not what we in our flesh and bones deal with all the time? We pray, we meditate, we listen for the Word of God, the still small voice, to speak to us and we believe God has left us at the altar. God has not left us at the altar. God is still preparing, still working and still moving pieces of our life in order to ensure that our life unfolds in the manner in which He wants it to unfold. We rarely know at the time our life seems to be falling apart that God set in motion a beautiful outcome. We rarely know that going to jail could be the absolute best thing to ever happen in our lives. We rarely know, or understand, that God is about shower our lives with favor beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Then it happens.

We look back and see that last trip to jail, was indeed, our last trip to jail. We see that God has simply moving pieces into place to reveal our faith, to apply the necessary pressure, not only for a diamond to be created, but for us to find the diamond among the shattered pieces of glass that was our life before knowing God.

Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
