Exodus 35:30-34 (GNB)
Moses said to the Israelites, “The LORD has chosen Bezalel,…God has filled him with his power and given him skill, ability, and understanding for every kind of artistic work, for planning skillful designs and working them in gold, silver, and bronze; for cutting jewels to be set; for carving wood; and for every other kind of artistic work. The LORD has given to him and to Oholiab son of Ahisamach, … the ability to teach their crafts to others.
I believe that the same God, who by His Spirit filled Bezaleel and Oholiab with the ability to create the necessary crafts needed for the building of the tabernacle, is anointing you today. God is anointing you with the ability to be skillful and excellent in every productive work that you are engaged in. God has chosen you and me to contribute towards the building of this nation through the works of our hands. That is why He consistently fills us with a fresh unction for excellent works and exploits in our various fields and endeavours. As God gave Solomon uncommon wisdom to build a magnificent palace that people came from all over the world to see, with the fresh wisdom of God upon us today, we too shall build this nation into one that will attract the world to visit and admire.
Do not limit the power of the Holy Spirit to your spiritual life alone. The Holy Spirit that God has filled you with can do much more for you than enable you to speak in tongues. He can also endow you with great strength and wisdom to undertake great works and exploits in your business, trade, career, profession or governmental responsibility. Men and women will see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Just make up your mind to remain diligent and to maintain an excellent spirit. Take your work seriously and remain confident that you are contributing to the growth of your nation’s economy.
As in our text above, God also gave Bezalel and Oholiab the ability to teach their crafts to others. You will also be able to influence others by replicating yourself. You will be able to train, mentor and teach others how to be excellent and do great works.
PRAYER FOCUS: Thank God for choosing you and filling you with His Spirit to do great works that will contribute to the growth of this nation. Declare in faith that by the empowerment of the Spirit, you are doing greater exploits in your field.
