Meditations in the Psalms
No structure designed by humans could compare with the simple tabernacle that was filled with the glory of God. Everything in it spoke of the worship of God and the importance of sacrifice and calling upon the Lord. It was His sanctuary, a place where the will of God would be known, and the worship of God continually practiced by his people. But, in spite of that blessing, they turned to idolatry and as a result, suffered the consequences.
- The construction of the tabernacle – verse 54
- The casting out of the heathen – verse 55
- The corruption they experienced – verses 56-58
- The consequences of their idolatry – verses 59-61
When we forsake the Lord and decide that we don’t need to follow Him or worship Him, we will suffer the consequences of our actions.
