Numbers 7:1-8:26: Some people don’t like it when one offering is taken but read about all the offerings God took for the service of the tabernacle. The people gave freely and with joy.
Numbers 8: Remember the seven lampstands represented the seven churches in the book of Revelation.
Proverbs 11:4-6: Righteousness was given to us by God through Jesus and we are now to live righteously everyday.
Mark 9:1-29: Jesus being transfigured before the 3 disciples. Peter wanted to build three tabernacles and stay on the mountain. Sometimes we want to stay isolated in His manifest presence but we need to go and be the light to a dark world. Jesus enjoyed the experience but came back to the people so He could deliver a young man from the devil.
Mark 9:23 is a foundational principle for us in achieving and accomplishing our dreams. Notice that the father’s unbelief halted Jesus from delivering his son!!! It was the moment the father said, “I believe,” that his son was delivered. The way to receive from God is the way of faith (Hebrews 11:6).
