When God calls, God will provide
When God wanted to have the Tabernacle of Moses built, all the necessary resources was at hand amongst the Israelites. Exodus 35:4-5 (NIV) 4 Moses said to the whole Israelite community, "This is what the LORD has commanded: 5 From what you have, take an offering for the LORD. Everyone who is willing is to bring to the LORD an offering of gold, silver and bronze… Did you notice the way God instructed the Israelites to contribute towards the tabernacle? God only instructed the Israelites to give. There was no mention of seeking external help. The Israelites were the solution to building the tabernacle. All the necessary resources resided within the Israelites themselves. God had blessed them sufficiently. They had enough to contribute towards building the tabernacle. The principle is this. God will provide sufficient resources for His purposes through His people. Of course, we can also look outside for assistance and resources. But often, when God calls, God will provide. When God calls a church to a task, a project, God will often provide from within the local church. When a wise leadership properly manages the project, there will be sufficient from within.
