Aholiab the Son of Ahisamach

You might know Bezalel the son of Uri. He was the man who made the tabernacle and everything that was associated with it. However, he did not do all the work, but he was in charge of the work. Someone in charge of such a huge job needs an assistant.
Meet Aholiab the son of Ahisamach. The Lord said to Moses, “And I, indeed I, have appointed with [Bezalel] Aholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and I have put wisdom in the hearts of all the gifted artisans, that they may make all that I have commanded you: the tabernacle of meeting, the ark of the Testimony and the mercy seat that is on it, and all the furniture of the tabernacle–the table and its utensils, the pure gold lampstand with all its utensils, the altar of incense, the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils, and the laver and its base–the garments of ministry, the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons, to minister as priests, and the anointing oil and sweet incense for the holy place. According to all that I have commanded you they shall do” (E xodus 31:6-11).
Even those two men did not work alone, but you probably noticed that the Lord referred to “all the gifted artisans.” Where did they learn to do their work? Yes, the Lord gave them their ability, but someone also trained them and they also worked in their trades in Egypt, working as slaves for the Egyptians!
The Lord placed them in their various places of work that He might use them later. What does the Lord have you doing right now? Is He training you for something later? Has He already been using you, although you might not be aware of it?
