Stay In Your Lane

God’s Word  

Exodus 31:1-6 (MSG)

 1-5God spoke to Moses: “See what I’ve done; I’ve personally chosen Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur of the tribe of Judah. I’ve filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him skill and know-how and expertise in every kind of craft to create designs and work in gold, silver, and bronze; to cut and set gemstones; to carve wood-he’s an all-around craftsman.

 6 “Not only that, but I’ve given him Oholiab, son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan, to work with him. And to all who have an aptitude for crafts I’ve given the skills to make all the things I’ve commanded you:

How often has someone told you to “stay in your lane”? For me? A lot. But there is substance behind those words.  When Moses was given instructions to build the tabernacle, God provided everything that would be needed.

God’s provisions: 

Skilled labor – Bezalel was personally chosen by God.  Not only that but God filled him with His Spirit, gave him the skill and know-how and expertise to do the job.

Bezalel knew what lane he was in.  He did not try to get in another lane.  The name of his lane was “craftsman drive”.

God provided help for the craftsman – Oholiab had a lane as well.  The name of his lane was “craftsman’s assistant terrace”.

Finally, God provided the “workforce behind Bezalel and Oholiab”. These workers had the aptitude (natural ability) but God provided the skills to make it happen.  The name of their lane?  “Help make it happen Lane”.

Summing it all up: 

If you have found yourself struggling with the vision God has given to you check your lane.

Stay in Your Lane Nuggets:

  • You must know that you have been personally chosen by God to complete the task before you.
  • You have already been given the wisdom, skill, know-how and expertise by God to do it.
  • He will provide who and what you will need to get it done.
  • The task will get done as long as you stay in your lane.
