SCRIPTURE: Exodus 25:8-9 (KJV)


“And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it”.

In our text, God told Moses about building a tabernacle when they came out of Egypt. One word that kept on coming was pattern. Our God is a God of order. Everything He does is with precision. He expects all His children to live a life of order. Think of the precision and the order with which God created the heaven and earth we are seeing. The sun in its place. Everything has its place: the moon, the stars, the clouds, the rain, the snow, the mountains, the valley, the river, the desert, and the streams. Everything was put in place and in order: the air we breathe, the clouds, the trees, and the mountains, giving beauty to the world.

Order speaks of having a plan and imbibing the culture of excellence. To have order is to be organized in your life and activities. It means being direct, keeping ranks, doing things according to prescription, doing things according to pattern, and doing things the way you have been instructed and the way you have been ordered to do it.

Prayers, fasting, studying of the Word, and fellowship are all important aspects of the life of a believer. However, one of the things that our new life in Christ should do for us is for our lives to be organized. But you will be surprised that a lot of Christians are not organized. Instead, they rather want to put everything on the Holy Spirit.

There is a place for prayer, but everything does not rise and fall on prayer. The Book of 1 Corinthians 14:40 declares, “Let all things be done decently and in order.” (KJV). As a new creation in Christ, be determined to introduce order into your life. Build a system for yourself. Don’t just live anyhow. Have a schedule. Plan your time and your money. Order will make your life beautiful.
