Exodus 13:22 22 Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people. (NIV)

 The Hebrews didn’t wander in the wilderness.  They were led by the pillar of cloud by day and by the pillar of fire by night.  When the pillars moved, the Hebrews moved with them.  They could have chosen to stay in one place but they moved forward with the pillars.  We are led by God’s Holy Spirit Who is our pillar of cloud and fire.  Are we moving with Him?  It’s comfortable to stay in one place or to worship in one traditional way.  We must make a choice.  We can stay in one place, do things in one way, or be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit and move with Him.  We can say, “We’ve never done it that way before.” Or we can say we will go and do in whatever way the Holy Spirit leads us.  We must ask ourselves if we’re moving forward with God or if we are content to stay in a comfortable rut.
