Even as Moses is warned of God when he is about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern that was showed thee in the mount. Hebrews 8.5.

God has His foreordained plan as to the work of the building of the church. Regardless of large or small matters, He has His own specific way. As Moses was not responsible for the design of the tabernacle but only responsible to build it according to the pattern of the mount, so the glory of a servant of Christ lies not in his ingenuity in doing God’s work but rather in his careful execution of what he understands to be the will of God. To know the Lord’s counsel and to execute accordingly is the glory of Christ’s servant.

A sister who has served the Lord for many years once said, “Man has absolutely no liberty in God’s work.” When Moses built the tabernacle, he had no freedom in deciding whether a small nail should be made of silver or of gold. He made every item according to what the Lord had commanded.
