God’s Blueprint

In Exodus 25, God gives plans or blueprints for the building of the Tabernacle. Notice the details as everything had to be made exactly according to the pattern, to the exact measurements and specifications. And it all came about through a man named Bezalel. God had filled him with His Spirit. And through Bezalel, the Spirit of God built the Tabernacle. What does that reveal?

The Holy Spirit, fulfills the plans of God. And the building of the Tabernacle was part of the Law of Moses. And the day that marks the giving of the Law is the Feast of Shavuot. And on that same day, the Feast of Shavuot, also known as Pentecost, the Spirit of God was given to the first followers of Jesus the Messiah. The same Spirit that translated all these plans and blueprints and measurements into reality. That same Spirit was given to His people and is given to you.

Why? To do the same work, to translate the purposes of God into reality. As it is written, “I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes.” Behind the word statutes is a Hebrew word that speaks of appointed times and measures. You see, God’s purposes, God’s will and plans for your life, are just as detailed, specific, and precise as the plans and measurements of the Tabernacle. His plans are perfect and not only for your life but for every day of your life, for every moment. That’s why He gives you the Holy Spirit. The Spirit gives you the power to fulfill God’s plan, to move in His perfect will, and to walk in the exact footsteps, down to the exact measurements and specifications of His appointed purposes for your life. Make it your goal to find and fulfill the perfect and precise plan God has for your life. Live by the Spirit, move in His leading, and you will walk into your appointed footsteps, in the blueprints of the Spirit.

TODAY: Seek to live according to the heavenly pattern. Walk, Speak, Submit, and move by the leading of the Holy Spirit into the divine blueprint God has for your life.
