Exodus 13:21 By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.

Until Jesus came to this earth, died and rose and ascended back to heaven the Holy Spirit was only sent to a few individuals. Here we read the Holy Spirit was in a form of a cloud to lead the Hebrews by day and as a funnel of fire to lead them by night. Now we have the Holy Spirit within us to lead us day and night. The Hebrews watched the cloud and the funnel of fire moving when and where they moved and staying still when they stayed still no matter how long they were still. We tend to rush on ahead of the Holy Spirit’s direction to move, forget to ask where to move and fail to stand still for however long the Holy Spirit bids us to be still An entire generation of Hebrews had pass before they learned to obey so they could go into the promised land. God has promises for us. How long does it take for us to listen, follow and obey to receive the fulfillment of His promises to us?
