Numbers 9:17-“Whenever the cloud lifted from above the tent, the Israelites set out; wherever the cloud settled, the Israelites encamped.”
Moses would consult with the Lord whenever he had a question. The Israelites would follow the presence of the Lord wherever it led them; a day, a month, or a year. They followed the cloud day or night.
In this Age, we have the presence of the Lord within us. The cloud or fire resides in our hearts. I can consult the Lord just like Moses did. The Lord can speak to my heart if I consult Him. I have to keep my heart soft, supple, and sensitive to the voice of the Lord so that I will be able to follow Him, night or day. The further I travel on my path of sanctification, the greater my need for accountability, the greater my need for the Word, and the greater my need to spend time in prayer.
Lord Jesus, I desire to hear your voice. I desire to be obedient to You, night or day. I desire to go where you want me to go. Accept my obedience as my offering. Cleanse my heart, and equip my hands for your service. In Jesus' name, amen.
