Artistic Designs

Exodus 35


I so enjoyed reading these verses and finding the specific ways the author delicately highlights the different artistic designs:

” Then Moses said to the people of Israel, “See, the Lord has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold and silver and bronze,  in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, for work in every skilled craft.  And he has inspired him to teach, both him and Oholiab the son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan.  He has filled them with skill to do every sort of work done by an engraver or by a designer or by an embroiderer in blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen, or by a weaver—by any sort of workman or skilled designer.” Exodus 35:30-35

Love that God doesn’t give skills randomly; an engraver is different than an embroiderer which is a different skill than a weaver. All of these design skills and more are for the purpose of making God’s name beautiful.

Thankful this morning for the reminder that we are each filled with His Spirit and gifted with talents and skills for the work He has prepared us to do.

What are the special ways God has gifted you? Join me in giving thanks that he uniquely designed you to glorify Him.
