Just as the LORD had Commanded

Exodus 39:42-43
So the people of Israel followed all of the LORD'S instructions to Moses. Then Moses inspected all their work. When he found it had been done just as the LORD had commanded him, he blessed them.

Lord, it's refreshing to see something that the Israelites did right while in the desert. This verse comes at the end of Chapter 39. Then in Chapter 40:16 it says, "Moses proceeded to do everything just as the LORD had commanded him." Then this paragraph and the next five paragraphs are ended with the phrase, "Just as the LORD had commanded him."

It becomes painfully obvious that You are not only concerned with our obedience but also that we do things just as You command us. We need to be sure that we obey You completely, not half-heartedly. We need to make certain that we follow Your instructions to the letter.

When we do this, we will be blessed and Your presence will go with us, just as the cloud covered the Tabernacle and Your glory filled it when the people did everything just as You commanded them.

Thank you, Lord, for how you have spoken to me this morning. Help me to follow Your instructions just as you command me. I adore you!!! In Jesus' name, amen.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
