The Lord Guides Us

Exodus 13:21 -- “The Lord went ahead of them. He guided them during the day with a pillar of cloud, and he provided light at night with a pillar of fire. This allowed them to travel by day or by night.”

Do you ever feel like you are wandering in the wilderness? It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle of the everyday. But even then, the Lord is our guide.

Exodus 13:21 tells us that the Lord went ahead of the Israelites and guided them while they were in the wilderness. He provided a beacon so His people could follow Him by day as a pillar of cloud and by night as a pillar of fire.

The Lord still goes ahead of us and guides us today. It will probably not be as a pillar of cloud or fire, but God provides beacons for us to follow. It may be an encouraging friends, a passage of scripture, or even just a gut instinct.

God still guides us, the question is do we still listen, and if we hear Him do we follow? God’s ways are often subtle and His voice gentle, but that does not distinguish His Almighty Power. We must push away our distractions and focus on Him. By listening to God and following His guidance we will be blessed and find peace.

What is God trying to tell you today?

Dear Lord,
Open my ears to hear you and open my heart to follow Your guidance.
