Show Me the Pattern
When Moses was receiving the instructions for building the tabernacle they were very detailed as to the measurements, layout, materials etc. Envious of Moses, I was wishing that the Lord would give me such clear direction in my life. Then I read this verse:
Exactly as I show you concerning the pattern of the tabernacle, and of all its furniture, so you shall make it.
The Lord not only told Moses what to do but he also SHOWED him according to the pattern. It was at this point that I begged God to SHOW me his pattern for my life, to have mercy on my and just SHOW me what to do... Not long after I started this prayer did I realize that he already did... He has already shown me JESUS. So then my prayer shifted a plea with the Lord that he would help me to see JESUS.
Father, open my eyes to see Jesus. To see him in your word and for his pattern to leave an indelible mark on my Spirit. Father give me faith to move forward in accordance with the pattern that you have shown me.
