Exodus 40:36 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys: 37 But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
God led His people with a cloud. They moved when the cloud moved. That would be a sweet way to know the will of God. It was clear to all. The cloud moved and God wanted them moving. It wasn’t just the leader who could see the cloud or know when God wanted them to move but all of them.
Today, God’s direction is not so easy to come by! We do not have a cloud. We do not have a clear way that He is going to lead us.
Of course, the Bible, His Word, is to lead us. But it doesn’t always get down to the every day details or really even the biggest of things that we should do. It doesn’t tell us where to go to church, what ministry to have, etc.
There are obviously clear lines about what should and shouldn’t be taking place but not specifics about a certain place. Many pastors today like to intimidate that they have an inside track that no one else has but I have to doubt that one.
So get into the Bible. Be fully convinced in your own mind. Don’t blame God or use God and His will as a way to win an argument for which you do not have Scripture. The cloud was obvious. Maybe I should allow each and every believer to seek God and His direction for their lives!!!
