This morning I was reading in Numbers 9 about how the Israelites stayed and moved at the Lord's leading. And this is how He led:
21 Sometimes the cloud stayed only from evening till morning, and when it lifted in the morning, they set out. Whether by day or by night, whenever the cloud lifted, they set out. 22 Whether the cloud stayed over the tabernacle for two days or a month or a year, the Israelites would remain in camp and not set out; but when it lifted, they would set out. 23 At the LORD’s command they encamped, and at the LORD’s command they set out. They obeyed the LORD’s order.
Sometimes I wish we had a cloud like that, don't you? A big visual sign! But I know we have the Holy Spirit - the still small voice, and I'm very grateful for that! Only the Israelites could enjoy the benefits of the cloud - now we all can enjoy being led by the Spirit who comes to live inside us when we ask Jesus into our heart. Very cool.
Well, I'll leave you with some pictures of our lovely time at the beach, along with a couple snapshots of the broken rearview mirror!
