Did you know that God has a plan for your life? Following his promptings by listening to the Holy Spirit, you will find it quite detailed and specific. You probably won’t know the truth until it falls into place. It reminds me of the adage, “Hindsight is 20-20”. I’ve started reading Numbers, and, oh my goodness, there were a lot of Israelites! God gave Moses specifics on where they were to set up their tents, and he kept their families in mind and placed them in groups together. Isn’t it interesting that God considers our family dynamics when putting together his plan for us? The most important part of that plan is where he placed the Tabernacle, right in the middle of the camp. How comforting must it have been to have the temple of God right in the heart of the community? The church used to be the center of everything, and it’s a shame that we’ve gotten away from living that way. However, we are very mobile with our vehicles and can easily travel to the church of our choice and interact with the children that God wants us to be in communion with. If you haven’t made church a part of your life, are you living in God’s plan? The answer is no. We are a social people, and we are expected to share our lives with other Christ-followers. Find a Bible-believing church and go!
Then the tabernacle of the congregation shall set forward with the camp of the Levites in the midst of the camp: as they encamp, so shall they set forward, every man in his place by their standards. Numbers 2:17
