Exodus 26-30 – January 7 at 2:21am
So tonight was a tough one. Exodus 26-30. This grouping of Scripture is very detailed and I didn’t see what wisdom the Holy Spirit would give me for this passage. It is a very detailed list of instructions for the building of the Ark of the Covenant, the robes for the high priest and so on. I then came to a
small part about the robe that was to be made for the first high priest, Aaron. There, in the ephod and chestpiece, were precious stones carved with the names of the 12 tribes of Israel. When Aaron would wear the robe, which he had to do every time he went into the Holy of Holies, in the presence of God,
those stones with the names of God’s chosen people, rested directly over Aaron’s heart. My Bible version says “This would be a continual reminder that he represents the people when he comes before the Lord.” So Aaron had written on his heart the names of people he prayed for. Many of you, my loved ones, are “written” on my heart when I go before God in prayer. I consider it an honor and privilege to pray for others. I consider it a privilege because I know it isn’t always easy to let our guards down and invite someone to share in our needs. It can be a very vulnerable thing to do because we are trusting them to hold a piece of us in their hands and not crush us. I pray you all know I’m here. You can share with me and know you won’t be crushed. You don’t even need to tell me details. You can just say you need prayer…that simple! God knows what you need! So….do you have people written on your heart that you take with you into prayer? Not sure how to pray? Just talk to Him…just like you would with a spouse or a friend. He is always there and He’ll always listen. I promise. Sleep well my friends.
