Exodus 40: 38 “For the cloud of the LORD was above the tabernacle by day, and fire was over it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.”
A man of God was stranded in a thick dense forest. He was lost as it began to get dark. He did not expect this delay so he was not prepared for the night in the forest. Without light, he can not navigate in this forest. He called upon the name of the Lord and Lord sent a huge gang of fireflies to rescue the man. With the light of the fireflies, and the leading of it, the man crossed the forest and entered into a village.Lord God leads us in many ways. His ways are unique and no one can foresee it. Here the Israelites saw the presence of God in the tabernacle. This presence guided them when to start their journey or rest in their journey. This presence also guided them as a light in their wilderness journey. We, who are attached in the body of the Anointed Tabernacle, are filled with His presence everyday and every moment of our life. When there is calm and clarity in our life, He will be with us as a cloud to give us rest. When we have troubles and confusions in our life, He will be with us as a fire to consume and to give power over the forces of darkness. Let us try to see His presence in our every moments of our life and we will know that God is a promise keeping God. He said ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’. When He promised, He will do it. Let us pray to God that we should see His glory and His presence as we walk, talk, sleep and in every step of our life.
