God is in the details

Exodus 26 - 28

Today Exodus 25:40 struck a chord with me ~
Be sure that you make everything according to the pattern I have shown you here on the mountain.

Details matter to God and so do His people.  Over and over in the reading today it is very detailed with instructions of how to do different things whether it is Aaron's clothing or the building of the tabernacle and altar God cares!  Today, I was reminded again of how important God's children of Israel are to Him as well.  I knew this, but I am reminded today by the details given on Aaron's ephod where the names of the tribes of Israel are engraved on as a reminder to the LORD everytime Aaron came before Him.  The chestpiece also had a stone representing the 12 tribes of Israel.  He wore this everytime he went to the Holy Place.  A constant reminder that he represented the people and he carried them over his heart!

We need to remember always just how important Israel truly is to God and to us!

One of my favorites today was the bells that tinkled on the robe Aaron wore when he ministered before the LORD.  The sound of tinkling when he went into or away from the LORD's company.  

I love that the LORD cares about every detail!  Do you catch it?  Read today's reading and it will remind you that indeed the LORD cares about every detail of our journey!

Sweet blessings,
