Oh Lord, I am grateful to know about the things that You love and wish for us to do on earth. On the same note, I have also learned to hate the things that You hate and for us not to do on earth. Although many things are done away with that were part of the old covenant, Your tabernacle still resides in heaven, which I think is so awesome. I love Your ten commandments, for they only make me a better person as I remember them and obey them. Your ways are so important and that is why I cling to them day in and day out. There is a reward for those who do Your will on earth. As for me, my desires are not on the things of this world, but what I am able to build up in heaven. So I pray that You have found my sacrifices for You honorable, Lord. I only wish to please You and to help others know You, Jesus. Keep me upright and shine brightly through me and into other people’s lives. Your light is so magnificent and for it to radiate through me is all I desire. You are so good, God. I praise Your holy Name. Lead me from temptation and forgive me of my sins. I love You, Lord. I trust in You. Amen.
Exodus 25:8-10 (KJV)
8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.
9 According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it.
10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.
God’s tabernacle is currently in heaven. However, there was a time when it was necessary to be on earth for God’s people.
