God has your number

What have you mastered?

How are you gifted and talented?

How has God specifically created you for a purpose designed especially according to your abilities, attitudes and passions?

How does the following passage apply and relate to your life?

Don’t you know Bezalel and Oholiab loved their work?

It wasn’t just a job it was a calling for them and they excelled at what they did!

God has your number and He is calling you out for a special purpose. Will you answer the call?

Here is the story as presented in the ancient text. How might your story read someday? Substitute Bezalel and Oholiab’s names with your own. Exchange craftsman and designer for your calling. Oh the satisfaction and success that comes from a sacred vocation!

“Then Moses told the people of Israel, “The Lord has specifically chosen Bezalel son of Uri, grandson of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. The Lord has filled Bezalel with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts. He is a master craftsman, expert in working with gold, silver, and bronze. He is skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones and in carving wood. He is a master at every craft. And the Lord has given both him and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, the ability to teach their skills to others. The Lord has given them special skills as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple, and scarlet thread on fine linen cloth, and weavers. They excel as craftsmen and as designers.”

Exodus 35:30-35 (NLT)
