Exodus 13:17-22 Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, “Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt.” 18 So God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Sea. And the children of Israel went up in orderly ranks out of the land of Egypt.19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for he had placed the children of Israel under solemn oath, saying, “God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from here with you.” 20 So they took their journey from Succoth and camped in Etham at the edge of the wilderness. 21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. 22 He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.
OUR DADDY LEADS THE WAY
The children of Israel were in captivity, bondage in Egypt (type of sin).
What I love about our Father is that He will not leave us.
Matthew 28:20, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
When we are starting on our journey with Him, it is that, a journey.
It is not, “I have arrived”, it is truly an ADVENTURE and a process.
Israel was in bondage and Father sent Moses to lead them to God’s best, the Promise Land.
God has vision for your life! He has a plan and a destination for you!
You have a DESTINY in Christ
Israel had the Promised Land, but they first had to leave Egypt!
Daddy didn’t say, “Good luck”, He sent a man named Moses to lead them.
God has always chosen a leader
Then He went a step further.
He set before them a visible, tangible guidance system.
The Pillar of Cloud by day
The Pillar of Fire by night
Our Father is the same, yesterday, today and forever. He wants His children to know that He is for them, not against them.
Exodus 13:21-22, And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night. 22He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.
As long as they followed the PRESENCE OF THE LORD, they would continue the adventure toward the Promised Land.
When they stopped following the presence of the Lord and the leader God placed for them, they ended up wandering for 40 years in the wilderness.
Keep your eyes on Jesus, His Word, and His presence.
