I finished reading the book of Exodus. I am always amazed at how detailed the Lord’s instructions were for Moses. He followed them in explicable exactness.
There was minute detail given in the craftsmanship of the articles made for the tabernacle, the priestly garments, and all the other intricate parts in the structural pieces of the tabernacle. Nothing was left out of the instructions.
Genesis 2:7 says that God made man out of the dust. We are also made in His image. Every detail of our lives was known before He formed us in the womb. He knows every thought before we think it.
Our God is a God of explicit detail.
I am a retired accountant. Details were the largest part of my work week. If I was off on a 18 column spreadsheet, I had to find it. Errors could not be glossed over.
The Lord has given us the Bible. It is our detailed manual for living victoriously. We can’t ignore it and expect to live in His abundance. If we gloss over it, the ‘errors’ in our heart will be ignored. His word is our course-corrector. He gave it to us to be our daily sustenance, our hope–our very life’s breath.
Luke 4:4 Amplified says, “And Jesus replied to him, It is written, Man shall not live and be sustained by (on) bread alone but by every word and expression of God.” We live by eating from the Living Lord through His word.
John 15:1-8 is about abiding, or as the Amplified says vitally united with Him. Verse 5 needs to be in the forefront of our walk. The Amplified says, “I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me (cut off from vital union with Me) you can do nothing.”
Jeremiah 15:16 says, “Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts.”
