Called…filled…to design artistic works – Fine Arts

Scripture
And Moses said to the children of Israel, “See, the LORD has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; and He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom and understanding, in knowledge and all manner of workmanship, to design artistic works, to work in gold and silver and bronze, in cutting jewels for setting, in carving wood, and to work in all manner of artistic workmanship. (‭Exodus‬ ‭35‬:‭30-33‬ NKJV)

Observation
Moses was constructing the Tabernacle.  He point out specific people called and filled with the spirit of God to do artistic works.  God has a calling and desire for artistic works to prosper, or he would not have done it for the temple.

Application
There are some that are called to ministry, but others called to be artistic.  The artistic calling here was not for self absorption or self gratification.  The artistic calling here was to design works for the Temple.  For the work of God. I am amazed at the ability of this generation in the arts, but God is still filling young men and women with his Spirit for every manner of artistic workmanship. Artistic expression is from God and for God.

Prayer
Lord help us to develop people and gifts for the edification of You!  Artistic ability used for your glory and not merely self promotion. Line Arts is all about bringing glory to the God that has called and filled the artist.  He is the ultimate art expression in the hands of a craftsman.
