Procession of Camp
The cloud settles. The cloud guides.
The presence of God is manifested in the cloud as it guided the Israelites. The Israelites watched the cloud closely. They anticipated movement of the cloud. We have the Holy Spirit to guide us today. We should anticipate God’s movement in the person of the Holy Spirit within us.
Lord, I’m watching and I am going to follow You. I want You to point the way and I will follow even if it is inconvenient, if it is unexpected, if I don’t have all the details.
People centered on God need to watch and listen for God’s calling. The trumpets called the Israelites together. Today it is not the trumpets calling us. God speaks to us and calls us through His Word (Studying/reading the Bible, Hymns, Discussion Groups, Voices of other believers).
God wants His people to follow where He leads.
In order to know where God is leading me, I need to be centered on Him. Am I watching and listening? God gives me the opportunities to make Him the center of my life. How do I use those opportunities?
Lord, please help me to follow You every day!
