Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
This is the consecrated portion for Aaron and his sons, from the offerings made by fire to the Lord, on the day when Moses presented them to minister to the Lord as priests. – Lev. 7:35
Aaron and his sons were consecrated as priests unto the Lord. Their responsibilities were sacred and holy! They would offer sacrifices to God on behalf of Israel so that God’s people could atone for (i.e. be forgiven for) their sin. This was a full time job! Moses and Aaron would spend all day, every day, fulfilling their responsibilities as priests. So in return, God would provide for them.
He would provide their food (v 35). He would provide their clothes (Lev. 8:7)! He would give them everything they needed so that they could devote their lives fully and completely to God. And He will do the same for you.
Do not let concern for material needs stop you from serving God. He will give you what you need to you can spend all day, every day in His presence! After all, that is where He created you to be.
So the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle. – Ex. 33:11
Father, thank You that I never have to leave Your presence. I am going to live my life at Your feet! And I thank You that as I do, You will provide for my every need. I am so grateful, in Jesus’ name.
