Let’s take a minute to think about Star Wars. The movie series was created by Writer/Director George Lucas in the mid-1970s and has since led to three prequels, a recent reboot, and several spinoff “Stories.” If I asked you who made Star Wars, you’d quickly answer, “George Lucas.”
While Star Wars may have been George Lucas’s “brainchild,” it certainly wasn’t created by him alone. Turning a dream into a script, and a script into a film and a film into a franchise took hundreds of editors, actors, designers, and producers. George Lucas’s dream was made a reality through the power of teamwork.
Humans were never designed to create on their own, even at the most basic level. God had to introduce a whole other gender onto earth just for humanity to create more of itself!
The same was true with Bezalel. God gave him a dream for a tabernacle decorated to the nines, carefully crafted and beautifully designed. While Bezalel might have been able to do everything on his own, it would have taken much longer and probably would have exhausted even the best of Bezalel’s mental and artistic resources. That’s where Oholiab came in.
You may not be able to pronounce his name without laughing, but Oholiab’s part in the story was no joke. He was a partner to Bezalel, a right-hand man with the ability to carry out Bezalel’s God-given dreams and creatively partner with him to make something beautiful. Humans were never designed to create on their own, even at the most basic level. God had to introduce a whole other gender onto earth just for humanity to create more of itself!
Who are the Oholiab’s God has placed in your life? They could be a coworker, a spouse, or a classmate. They could be someone completely off your radar. Ask God to place on your path the right people to partner with so that the dreams he’s given you can become a reality.
