Today’s reading Numbers 8-10

Numbers 9:17 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.

God was so gracious to His people. He made it clear to them that He was with them and then He literally guided every step of their journey. The cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night showed them the presence of God in their midst!

He had called them out of Egypt. He was leading them through a land that they did not know to do things that they had never done before but He did not leave them alone.

God has done the same with you. He saved you out of sin and is leading you in your life journey towards eternity with Him but He has not left you alone and He will not. He will guide your steps and has given you a book that you can read and study and with the direction of the Holy Spirit understand how to live out your new life.

He guides you. He has also given you His Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit indwells you and confirms to you that you are His and that He is at work in your life. You do not have to live this life from outward pressure but from an inward reality!
