Last week we looked at this powerful scripture
“Then the cloud covered the Tabernacle, and the glory of the Lord filled the Tabernacle. Now whenever the cloud lifted from the Tabernacle, the people of Israel would set out on their journey, following it. But if the cloud did not rise, they remained where they were until it lifted. The cloud of the Lord hovered over the Tabernacle during the day, and at night fire glowed inside the cloud so the whole family of Israel could see it. This continued throughout all their journeys.” Exodus 40:34, 36-38 NLT
We in the New Covenant of Grace through the death, burial, and resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, have the Glory of God on the inside of us through His Spirit. In the same way that the Children of Israel follow the cloud of glory, we as Christians can follow the “cloud” of glory in side us.
When making a decision or a life change, take time to see if the peace of God is going in that direction or not. We follow the “cloud” by following the peace and rest within us. If we move in a direction and notice that there is an unrest and hesitation in our Spirit, then we need to pay attention to that. Perhaps God is not leading that way.
The Children of Israel didn’t do a lot of things right but they got this right. If the cloud remained, then they remained. If the cloud moved, then they moved with it. We can do the same thing by looking to the Spirit of God inside us.
When making decisions in life, whether large or small, don’t trust only in external things. Stay with the cloud of His presence, His peace, His rest. If you feel in your spirit unrest, stay with God’s peace by following what brings a peaceful rest and you will find yourself in God’s will… blessed and prosperous in all things.
