Did you know that there is NO sacred/secular split in God’s eyes? The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof (Ps. 24:1), so nothing on this earth is secular. Nothing is satan's. It is ALL God’s. So any job I do is my ministry unto the Lord and His service through me to all of humanity (Col. 3:23-24). This includes construction, architecture, sewing, teaching others these crafts, etc.
Craftsmen anointed with God’s wisdom and knowledge
Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, "See, I have called by name Bezalel... "I have filled him with the Spirit of God in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all kinds of craftsmanship, to make artistic designs for work in gold, in silver, and in bronze, and in the cutting of stones for settings, and in the carving of wood, that he may work in all kinds of craftsmanship…in the hearts of all who are skillful I have put skill, that they may make all that I have commanded you” (Exodus 31:1-6).
You are to instruct all the skilled craftsmen, whom I have filled with a spirit of wisdom, to make garments for Aaron's consecration, so that he may serve Me as priest. (Exodus 28:3)
Then Moses said to the Israelites, “See, the LORD has called by name Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability, and knowledge in all kinds of craftsmanship, to design artistic works in gold, silver, and bronze, to cut gemstones for settings, and to carve wood, so that he may be a master of every artistic craft.
And the LORD has given both him and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, the ability to teach others. He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple, and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and as weavers—as artistic designers of every kind of craft.” (Exodus 35:30-35 Berean Study Bible)
When I was reading these chapters recently, I was struck by the fact that even sewing, weaving and embroidering were done under the anointing. Also, the ability to teach others these crafts is a gift and calling from God.
- Lord, what are the skills You have placed within me?
- Lord, what love and passion have You put in my heart?
- Lord, how do You want to combine this love, passion and skill to serve You and humanity well? What guidance do You want to give me? What steps do You want me to take?
