Clouds and fire…


Exodus 34:34 Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 35 Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud settled upon it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 36 Whenever the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, the Israelites would set out on each stage of their journey; 37 but if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out until the day that it was taken up. 38 For the cloud of the LORD was on the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, before the eyes of all the house of Israel at each stage of their journey. 

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to clearly see where God is leading? I mean, when there’s a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night, there’s no guess-work involved. Where it goes, we go. Where it stops, we stop.

But that’s not our experience today as God’s leading is much more subtle. These are difficult days friends. And though we don’t have clouds and fire to show us the way, we do have the Holy Spirit to speak on the inside, fellow believers to speak on the outside, the Word of God in scripture to speak to us in written form, and more.

Lord Jesus, give us eyes to see and ears to hear where you call. Amen.
