Then Moses said to the Israelites, “Look, the Lord has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, from the tribe of Judah. (Uri was the son of Hur.) And he has filled Bezalel with the Spirit of God—he gave Bezalel special skill and knowledge to do all kinds of things. Exodus 35:30-31
Bezalel had skill. He was one of the first noted that was filled with the Spirit of God and given special skill and knowledge on how to do things. This man could do anything! He could work with metal and wood, cut and set stone and jewels, make things out of gold. The man could even weave things with designs in them. Amazing!
This same Spirit that filled Bezalel lives in you. I keep thinking how God revealed to Peter that He doesn’t consider one person better than others (Acts 10:34). In His eyes, we’re all equal. We all have the same access to the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead. We simply must believe, open ourselves up to Him and allow His Spirit to teach us.
You and I, we have special skills available that only God can give and only His Spirit can show us how to use. You may not feel like you do, but it’s true. The problem doesn’t lie in the skill, the problem is we don’t believe. For so many years we’ve allowed the deceiver to convince us we can’t so we don’t.
What would you do differently today if you knew it was possible? Matthew 19:26, Jesus said, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Stop trying to make things happen and spend time in the presence of God. Allow the Spirit to show you things and activate the special skills He’s given you.
Father, this morning I choose to sit in Your presence and worship You. Activate special skills in me. In myself I can do nothing, but in You I can do anything. I give You access to everything in me. Guard my heart and mind so that I don’t believe the lies of the enemy. May I measure every thought and hold it up against Your Word. If it’s contrary, I will cast it down, if it’s agreeable, I will believe. It’s in Jesus’ name and for Your glory I pray, Amen.
