“In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out; but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out – until the day it lifted. So the cloud of the LORD was over the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel during all their travels.” Exodus 40:36-38
The Lord led the Israelites in all their travels. They didn’t move unless He said it was time. The cloud, that His presence resided in, was in the sight of all of Israel.
Our pastor defined inverted Christianity this past weekend, as:
o Instead of following the Spirit, I invite the Holy Spirit to follow me.
o Instead of serving God’s purposes, I ask God to serve my purposes.
Next, he asked a challenging question: Will my life be an adventure following Jesus or an inversion where I ask Jesus to follow me?
I need to keep Jesus in my sight daily and be in tune with what He has planned for my life. Instead of making my own plans and asking Jesus to follow along, I need to ask for His agenda and then be obedient.
“Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.” Proverbs 8:33&34
Where He leads me, I will follow.
You are the One who knit me together and knows all the days ordained for my life. You are the only Way. Please help me to keep You in my sight always and follow Your lead in all I do and say.
