2 And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whose mind the Lord had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to do the work. 3 And they received from Moses all the contribution that the people of Israel had brought for doing the work on the sanctuary. They still kept bringing him freewill offerings every morning, 4 so that all the craftsmen who were doing every sort of task on the sanctuary came, each from the task that he was doing, 5 and said to Moses, “The people bring much more than enough for doing the work that the Lord has commanded us to do.” 6 So Moses gave command, and word was proclaimed throughout the camp, “Let no man or woman do anything more for the contribution for the sanctuary.” So the people were restrained from bringing, 7 for the material they had was sufficient to do all the work, and more. -Exodus 36:2-7
When God wants something done, he makes it clear.
In the case of the tabernacle, God provided more than enough supplies in the middle of the desert. After 35 chapters of Exodus, a reader could easily wonder how the Israelites could find the gold, thread, oil, and other resources to complete the task. But chapter 36 offers a surprise.
The people not only had enough to do the job, but far more than enough.
Isn’t this so true in our lives?
We don’t see how God will get us through a situation. Then we discover he has provide enough and often even more than enough to succeed. Our God is not cheap; he is the owner of the universe. We may not receive riches, yet we can count on him for more than enough to meet our daily needs.
