Exodus 31:6-11, “I have given skill to all the craftsmen to make everything I have commanded you : the Tent of Meeting,the Ark of the Testimony with the atonement cover on it, and all the other furnishings of the tent-.They are to make them just as I have commanded you”
When God puts us on any task or assignment, He has already equipped/furnished us with ALL the necessary element or ingredients to complete/finish that particular task.
Now our success depends to how best we use the same in order to accomplish the task…There are many Christians and Non-Christians who still grumble that they do not have any talent or ability or expertise. But the above verse says that He had given skill toALL the craftsmen to make everything He had commanded…If we try to do some tasks which are assigned or allotted to someone else, then definitely we find something lacking…But God has called us for something different. He has a specific plan for each of us…He has called some to be apostles, some teachers, some evangelists and so on .Our God is just and is not partial and does not show favoritism …His love and justice is exhibited by the very fact that the sun is the same for everyone and gives equal light to all, irrespective of whether he admires God or not and whether He understands Him or not…Though there are people who worship the creation instead of the Creator (Worshippers of Sun or Worshippers of Trees ,whom I met) ,God still demonstrates His patience by sending rain on all the people equally…It is never like a good rain for a believers field and complete drought for a wicked person…The very Creation speaks of His accommodative nature…So He has given ALL the people talents ..
We read of Noah, a blameless and a righteous person among the people of his time who were so wicked and they grieved/pained God’s heart …But in view of the planned terrible destruction through floodwaters on the earth, God commanded him to “Make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out, This is how you are to build it :The Ark 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high” …It had to made with three decks
There was never rain till then, on the entire earth. Imagining ourselves in place of Noah, how difficult it is to obey God’s command in the midst of people who were making fun of him, scorning this very idea, ridiculing that there was never a rain but he was building an ark for the floodwaters …He never had our authentic or dependable Bible, which could always give some previous references of such tough situations or examples or illustrations of such wonders performed by the Almighty….The only basis or the foundation for this gigantic/colossal task of building an ark was God’s voice…and nothing else…How much time/money /efforts must Noah have invested in this venture ??? Not knowing the result finally. All because of his strong faith /trust in his Creator…Whatever be the opposition or whatever may be the cost involved, he was ready to do it and the final result as mentioned inGenesis 6:22 “Noah did everything just as God commanded him” This also proves that God had given the skill to do everything He had commanded.. Yes, these heroes of faith have proved to entire humanity and all the coming generations that God’s word is trustworthy….…God sent the rain ,as He had promised in the six hundredth year of his life and thus he was safeguarded from the destruction by the same ark, though everything else had perished… to continue
