Where’d They Get It?

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Exodus 38:24

The total amount of the gold from the wave offering used for all the work on the sanctuary was 29 talents and 730 shekels, according to the sanctuary shekel.


Herein lies the continuation story of the Israelites funding the building of the mobile Tabernacle in the wilderness. Some have said that the number of talents of gold and silver would amount to $12-15 million today! But, please remember they had just left the nation of Egypt sometime earlier and had been wandering in the wilderness. When it comes to that kind of money for former slaves, the question arises, “Where’d They Get It?”


The Bible tells us in Exodus 12:35-36 that the Israelites, on their way out of Egypt at the command of the Lord, asked the Egyptians for their silver and gold. The scripture tells us that the Egyptians gave them what they asked for to the point that the Bible says they “Plundered the Egyptians!” What the people of Israel gave Moses in the wilderness to create and build a mobile tabernacle came from their own personal financial “STASH.” They had been given millions upon millions upon millions of dollars in today’s currency in the form of gold and silver and clothing. It all happened in one night. The scripture also tells us, “The wealth of the wicked has been stored up for the righteous” (Pr. 13:22). So, whenever God provides any financial victory for you, there will be those who say, “Where’d They Get It?” We must always answer, “It came from our God, and there’s more where that came from!”


Dear Jesus,

I love You, and I thank You this AM for always providing for my every need. I’m not worried about tomorrow or next year. Because I know there’s more where that came from! Amen
