Exodus 40:35 NLT
“Moses could no longer enter the Tabernacle because the cloud had settled down over it, and the glory of the Lord filled the Tabernacle.”
The cloud settled down
What made the cloud settle down, and the glory of God fill the Tabernacle? Why didn’t these events occur immediately after the lampstand was set up or when the altars of incense and burnt offerings were put in place? Why was it that everything happened after the completion of the setup? The timing is instructive for knowledge. It suggests that God is not moved by the tangible but by the intangible. Take, for instance, the situation that surrounded the manifestation of the Holy Spirit. On the day God fulfilled the promise of the Holy Spirit, the disciples had no altar of burnt offering or incense or any lampstand with them. It is worth noting that the event occurred during a festivity, which means that none of them was fasting. Another message centers on what Moses did when the glory of the Lord filled the Tabernacle. The scripture says that he stayed out. He didn’t claim that the schedule was disrupted but accepted God’s chosen modality. Everything happened in a flash, yet Moses adapted.
Faithful Father, please let me always know that Your grace is sufficient for me. In Jesus’s name, amen.
