THEME: PILLAR OF FIRE
“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. He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.”
-God manifested Himself divinely through a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night, to guide the Israelites in their journey. He previously appeared to Moses in such a way through the burning bush experience and directed him on his calling. When they marched through the desert by day, the pillar of cloud protected them from extreme heat and offered them direction. At night the pillar of fire eased them from care and secured them from danger both when moving and resting. The Lord loves us with His lavish love and continues to guide us, protect us, provide for us, counsel us and preserve us through the presence of His Holy Spirit in our spirits. He also guides us through His word which becomes a lamp to our feet and a light to our path (Psalms 119:105). He is the Light of the world and calls us to follow Him always that we may have the light of life (John 8:12), which offers us direction and overcomes all darkness.
