Exodus 13:21-22 ” By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.”

The Scene: A representation of the pillar of cloud; each day God set the course for the Israelites to follow. Trusting Him, they followed the pillar of cloud by day and a pillar fire by night–not worrying about tomorrow or what the future would bring. Father God provided every day:  the Israelites’ water, clothing, and food.

Today we are called to do likewise, thinking only of today and what it brings (good and bad) trusting only in our God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Following the Holy Spirit as our guide; not by cloud or fire, but by prayer and meditation along with study on His Word, our Comforter the  Counselor will lead us through our day, if we let Him.

John 14: 15-18 ” ‘If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever– the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.’ ”

John 14: 26-27 ” ‘But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.’ ”
