Numbers 9:15-23
15 The Tabernacle was set up, and on that day the cloud covered it. Then from evening until morning the cloud over the Tabernacle appeared to be a pillar of fire. 16 This was the regular pattern-at night the cloud changed to the appearance of fire. 17 When the cloud lifted from over the sacred tent, the people of Israel followed it. And wherever the cloud settled, the people of Israel camped. 18 In this way, they traveled at the LORD’s command and stopped wherever he told them to. Then they remained where they were as long as the cloud stayed over the Tabernacle. 19 If the cloud remained over the Tabernacle for a long time, the Israelites stayed for a long time, just as the LORD commanded. 20 Sometimes the cloud would stay over the Tabernacle for only a few days, so the people would stay for only a few days. Then at the LORD’s command they would break camp. 21 Sometimes the cloud stayed only overnight and moved on the next morning. But day or night, when the cloud lifted, the people broke camp and followed. 22 Whether the cloud stayed above the Tabernacle for two days, a month, or a year, the people of Israel stayed in camp and did not move on. But as soon as it lifted, they broke camp and moved on. 23 So they camped or traveled at the LORD’s command, and they did whatever the LORD told them through Moses.

The Israelites traveled and camped as the Lord guided them.  They did not make a move before the cloud did.  When you follow God’s guidance, you know you are where God wants you to be.  So many times we are looking for God to guide us into what we should be doing next or where we should be going, but every one of us is at some place right now.  Instead of praying, “God, where do you want me to go?” ask, “God what do you want me to do while I’m right here?”  Direction from God is not moving you from one place to another or one job to another; it is understanding that He has a purpose to use you right where you are now.  It doesn’t matter if you are in the valley or on top of the mountain; God has a purpose for you right where you are.  Begin to understand God’s purpose for your life by doing His will right where you are at this moment!

Have a God Day!
