Exodus 31:6 God Will Give You The Needed Skills

Moreover, I have appointed Ohoiab son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dan, to help him. Also I have given ability to all the skilled workers to make everything I have commanded you: Exodus 31:6

Different people have different skills and different levels of abilities in these skills. Some people appear to have natural abilities in some skills. They seem to be able to do something very well with no trouble at all. Others have to fight hard just to do some of the same things just enough to make it acceptable, but still far from great.

As Moses was given instructions on what to build for the tabernacle, God provided various men with skills to be able to make everything needed.

God will often ask a person to step out in faith and do some new type of work or ministry. Very often believers feel as if they are unqualified to do that new type of work or at least to do it well. Many will run from it, rather than trusting God and moving forward.

When God calls a person to do a work for Him, He will also equip the person for the work. Abilities beyond the normal will suddenly show up in the person for accomplishing the mission that has been given.

The work abilities required may be physical skills as those helping build the tabernacle and its accessories. Other times it may be other abilities, such as working with children, special needs people, speaking, teaching, or some other needed skill.

Regardless of what skill is needed, the important thing for the believer is to lean on God for understanding and to do the work He calls him to do. At the time needed, God will provide all that is needed when the servant is faithful.

There is a work that God has given you to do in the process of building His kingdom. In this, He has also ready to give you the strength and skills to be able to accomplish that mission with success.

Rather than look at your faults and lack of abilities, focus upon what God has given you the ability to do. With God at your side guiding you, you will be able to do more than you could or would ever be able to do on your own.

Ask yourself what skills has God given you to build His kingdom.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will trust God to give you the abilities needed; that you will be willing to do the work God has for you; and that you will build God’s kingdom in His way.

Exodus 31:2-3 Given Enough To Do The Job

“See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge, and with all kinds of skills–” Exodus 31:2-3

Each person has different talents or skills to do different things in this life. Some people excel at math and can do engineering work, that most others cannot even comprehend. Others have the ability to write, or do carpentry, or work with metal, or design something specific. Each one is a little different.

Those that do not have that type of skill, cannot understand how another can do it so easily and so well. With some schooling and a lot of hard work, some people can train themselves to do just about any skill there is. Yet, for most people, there is a block that keeps them from learning some things. They just don’t have that ability.

As God was having Moses gather materials and people to build the temple and all the things in it, God gave him Bezalel to help out with the construction of the materials. God had placed His Holy Spirit upon Bezalel so that he would be able to do many things. He was filled with wisdom, understanding, knowledge and many different skills. God gave him what he needed to get the job done.

God works in the same way today with believers. He calls them to do some work for Him, then He equips them with what is needed to get the job done. The Holy Spirit can come upon a person and fill him in an extraordinary way to do extraordinary things.

The ways God gives those abilities may be different for each person. Some will just be given the ability to quickly learn with ease in schooling. Others will be given supernatural knowledge to just know how to do something as needed.

You are no different than Bezalel. God has given you some skills to do something for the kingdom of God that no other person can do. Seek God to find out what that skill is and what that job is. Set your heart on doing the work God has for you to do in order to build His kingdom and bring Him glory.

Don’t try to be someone you are not. Use what God has already given you to build His kingdom.

I pray today that God’s Spirit will rest upon you; that you will know the guidance the Holy Spirit will give you; that you will know the talents God has given you; and that you will use what God has given you for His kingdom and glory.
