Exodus 35:10-36:38; Matthew 27:32-66; Psalm 34:1-10; Proverbs 9:7-8

What can God do with a willing heart? Anything! The building of the Tabernacle was a massive undertaking– especially for former slaves. When God designed the Tabernacle, He designed it so that only He would be able to supply the material. God spared no expense.

How were they able to get all of the building materials and finishing materials? The leaders explained the need and the Bible says that the people willingly brought what they had to help. They were not only able to give but willing to give.

What happens when one’s willingness matches their ability? Supernatural provision takes place. Often people will say, “If I had more, I could do more.” Yet they discount what they currently have. Prompted by God, the Israelites brought what they had so that the Tabernacle would be completed.

The people brought so much willingly that Moses had to tell them to stop bringing provisions because they had more than enough. Giving like this is enabled when people have been good stewards of their resources and have a willing heart.

Let’s pray that when God speaks to us to give that we are both willing and able.
