31 Days of God-Woven Moments – October 2
It shall have an opening for the head in the middle of it, with a woven binding around the opening, like the opening in a garment, so that it may not tear. Exodus 28:32
“The hole on the top, through which the head was put, was carefully bound about, that it might not tear in the putting on. In religious worship, care must be taken to prevent every thing that may distract the minds of the worshippers, or render the service despicable. Round the skirts of the robe were hung golden bells, and the representations of pomegranates made of yarn of divers colours. The pomegranates added to the beauty of the robe, and the sound of the bells gave notice to the people in the outer court when he went into the holy place to burn incense, that they might then apply themselves to their devotions at the same time, in token of their concurrence with him in his offering, and their hopes of the ascent of their prayers to God in virtue of the incense he offered.” Matthew Henry
Father, I want to be bound in Your love. I desire to apply myself to prayer, thanksgiving, and devotion as You call me. As I enter into Your Presence, LORD, I pray that I always remain tightly woven as to not depart from Your ways, that I would not tear to pieces under worldly stress, worldly ways, the worldly pull. I want to be close to You in the bindings of Your hand-pulled threads. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
