The Right Place

"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." - Exodus 13:21-22

One of my favourite words from the Christmas season is the name - 'Immanuel' - and the reason for this is because of the powerful reminder that 'God is always with us.' However, in a slight variation of this word, we see another reminder of God's presence in Exodus 13 - it is the promise that God is guiding us on our journey of Faith. 

...God is 'in front of the people'
...God is leading us 
...God WILL direct our paths
...God is in the pillar of cloud and in the pillar of fire
...God uses two different (but clear) signs to lead us

All of this is done so that God can help his people get to their RIGHT destination - His chosen path and His chosen destination.

I have been challenged to put God in the right place as we begin 2019.
May you join me in doing so.

Living in Grace
