That's an Odd Verse
"According to the commandment of the Lord they were numbered by the hand of Moses, each according to his service and according to his task; thus were they numbered by him, as the Lord commanded Moses." -- Numbers 4:49
That was the verse that the Holy Spirit fixed my mind on a few weeks ago. It's a "skim over" verse. A conclusion to yet another list of people and tabernacle paraphernalia. I typically read these lists quickly, and simply to check the box that says: Bible Study. I don't generally expect God to speak through them. And that's wrong.
God through Paul tells us that His entire Word is profitable -- not merely the portions that we judge to be interesting or instructive. It rests on us to approach His word correctly, assuming:
1. God intentionally included this,
2. For my edification, and
3. He is present and able to apply it to me and my life. (Even when we may not want Him to.)
