Maintaining Focus

How do we construct a Tabernacle? By studying Torah and thus G-d will have HIS dwelling place. The hardest part is to have G-d’s word on my heart. This means I must learn to live, act and do G-d’s word on a daily basis.

How many times do fail or fall short? Everyday! I strive to reach the goal.  G-d is looking at is my heart. Is my heart and motives right? I sure hope so and this is why I ask HaShem to guide me every day and give me correction.

This is done through my teacher Pastor Steve Gray World Revival Church.

G‑d told Moses to encourage the Jewish people to remember their history, recalling how G‑d chose them to be His people, gave them the Torah, and shepherded them through the desert on the way from Egypt to the Land of Israel.

[Moses said,] “[G‑d] made [the Jewish people] surround Him [by commanding them to camp around the Tabernacle].” Deuteronomy 32:1

By studying the Torah regularly, we construct a “Tabernacle,” i.e., a dwelling for G‑d, in our personal lives. By commanding the Jewish people to encamp around the Tabernacle, G‑d teaches us that we should center our lives around this inner sanctuary. The innermost point of the Tabernacle was the Ark, which housed the Tablets of the Covenant, i.e., the Torah. When the Torah is the focal point around which our lives revolve, it can positively affect all facets of our lives, as it is meant to. Furthermore, once the Torah is illuminating and influencing our lives as it is meant to, its influence can spread still further outward, enlightening and refining all humanity and the entire world.1 Hitva’aduyot 5744, vol. 4, pp. 2649–2650.
