So the Israelites begin to build the sanctuary, God’s dwelling place. It’s a project God has specifically commissioned, and He has asked for their willingness to partner with Him in building a house for Him. And nestled in the description of all the building is this little piece of information: "And so the people were restrained from bringing more, because what they already had was more than enough to do all the work." (vs 6-7)
What they had was more than enough. God gave skills to the craftsmen for building. He blessed the people with material goods, and they were willing to give — more than enough! What God had commissioned, He provided for. All the tools and talent were gifts from His hand.
I so often forget this! I so often lose sight of the fact that God has more than enough to equip me to do everything He has commissioned me to do! The only part I give is the willingness. Since He won’t force me to follow His plan for my life, I can choose to miss out on what He wants me to do. But if I’m willing, I will find that everything else is provided.
What about you? Facing a tough job? Something that looks too massive for you to handle? Put your willingness on God’s side, and watch all the ways that He will provide everything you need to get the job done!
