A very detailed planner

Reading the instructions God gave to Moses to make the tabernacle in Exodus, it’s not hard to notice how painstakingly detailed the instructions are.

‘Make a lampstand of pure gold and hammer it out… six branches are to extend from the sides of the lamp – three on one side and three on the other. Three cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms are to be on one branch, three on the next branch. And on the lampstand there are to be four cups shaped like almond flowers with buds and blossoms. One bud shall be under the first pair of branches extending from the lampstand…’

A lot, a lot of instructions for one lampstand.


It shows that God really knows what He wants.

Compare two shoppers. One knows exactly the kind of table he/she wants in his/her bedroom, one has no idea. The first shopper would be able to rattle off all the characteristics he/she wants in the table, sometimes enough details that it can be like an instruction manual. On the other hand, the second shopper would just look around and choose something that has already been made.

God instructed how He wanted everything in His tabernacle made. He knew exactly what he wanted. That shows very good planning and a very good knowledge of self and a whole bunch of other stuff.
