Daily Devotion: Where Are The Vessels?

Bible Reading: Nehemiah 10:28-39

Key Verse: Verse 39 - “For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall bring the offering of the corn, of the new wine, and the oil, unto the chambers, where are the vessels of the sanctuary, and the priests that minister, and the porters, and the singers: and we will not forsake the house of our God."

Key Words: where are the vessels

The statement “Where are the vessels” is not so much a question of the vessels being lost; it’s a statement of bringing the offerings of corn, new wine, and oil to the area where the vessels are. It has to do with location.

I remember as a young lad my mother buying some canning jars, and she was having a hard time finding a place to store them. Finally, she said, “Son, go put the jars where the preserved vegetables are.” I knew exactly where she wanted them. I knew the exact location of the “where.”

The where of our text deals with organization. Everything has a place, and everything in its place helps the ministry to minister.

In a peanuts cartoon, Lucy demanded that Linus change TV channels, threatening him with her fist if he didn’t. “What makes you think you can walk right in here and take over?” asks Linus. “These five fingers,” says Lucy. “Individually, they’re nothing, but when I curl them together like this into a single unit, they form a weapon that is terrible to behold.” “Which channel do you want?” asks Linus. Turning away, he looks at his fingers and says, “Why can’t you guys get organized like that?”

Organization helps.

What to do:
✞ Organization helps not only put things together, but helps you organize your spiritual life for God’s glory.
