God Dwelt Among Them

Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2“On the first day of the first month you shall set up the tabernacle of the tent of meeting. 3“You shall place the ark of the testimony there, and you shall screen the ark with the veil. 4“You shall bring in the table and arrange what belongs on it; and you shall bring in the lamp stand and mount its lamps. 5“Moreover, you shall set the gold altar of incense before the ark of the testimony, and set up the veil for the doorway to the tabernacle. 6“You shall set the altar of burnt offering in front of the doorway of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting. 7“You shall set the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar and put water in it. 8“You shall set up the court all around and hang up the veil for the gateway of the court. 9“Then you shall take the anointing oil and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it, and shall consecrate it and all its furnishings; and it shall be holy. 10“You shall anoint the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and consecrate the altar, and the altar shall be most holy. 11“You shall anoint the laver and its stand, and consecrate it. 12“Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the doorway of the tent of meeting and wash them with water. 13“You shall put the holy garments on Aaron and anoint him and consecrate him, that he may minister as a priest to Me. 14“You shall bring his sons and put tunics on them; 15and you shall anoint them even as you have anointed their father, that they may minister as priests to Me; and their anointing will qualify them for a perpetual priesthood throughout their generations.” 16Thus Moses did; according to all that the LORD had commanded him, so he did….34Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 35Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 36Throughout all their journeys whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the sons of Israel would set out; 37but if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out until the day when it was taken up. 38For throughout all their journeys, the cloud of the LORD was on the tabernacle by day, and there was fire in it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel. (Exodus 40:1-16; 34-38)

Today, God dwells with and in us through faith. We are to “walk by faith not by sight”. (2 Corinthians 5:7) God is constantly watching out for His children and providing for them. Are you one of His children?
