Exodus 40

The Tabernacle is set up; everything in its proper place. Aaron and his sons are prepared to serve the Lord in the proper fashion, and now Moses can no longer enter that place prepared by God (40:35). The Lord used His people to bring the nation to this point in their history and, having done so, the Scripture declares the glory of the Lord filled the Tabernacle. It was in the physical Tabernacle that the Lord “took up” a dwelling place (40:34); now He resides in the heart of each who has called upon His name. Will we go only where the Lord will take us, or will we take the Lord where we want to go?
