Today’s reading Exodus 34-36:7
Exodus 36:6-7 And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing. 7 For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.
God’s people got excited about giving to His causes. They were building the Tabernacle as a place to worship God. His Spirit touched their hearts and stirred up their spirits to the point that they brought offerings day after day!
The point came that they had given enough. They had met the need. God’s people can still do that today! God has already given us what we need to accomplish His purposes in our ministry!
Remember that as they left Egypt God had caused the people of Egypt to give them gifts. They had literally been made rich by the Egyptians as they left. They may have had no idea why God was giving them so much as they left but God knew.
He was providing for them so that they would have to make an offering in the building of the Tabernacle.
Do you realize that God prospers you for the cause of His purposes? Do you realize that when you seem to be making money for yourself God wants you thinking of Him and His kingdom so that you can honor Him who gave you the ability to gain the funds?
Do you allow the Holy Spirit to touch your heart about what you ought to do for the cause of World Evangelism? Do you ask God how much He would have you bring for His purposes?
