Exodus 13:21-22

The Lord Will Daily Lead You


Exodus 13:21-22
“The Lord was going before them
in a pillar of cloud by day
to lead them on the way,
and in a pillar of fire by night
to give them light,
that they might travel
by day and by night
and He did not take away
the pillar of cloud by day
nor the pillar of fire by night
from before the people.”
That is an awesome thing.
Could you imagine being led by a
physical pillar of cloud
in the daytime and fire at night?
It’d be hard to go wrong.
Hard to make a mistake.
The voice of the Holy Spirit,
is stronger than a pillar of fire
and a pillar of cloud.
What we have in the comforter,
Holy Spirit, who was released
after the resurrection of Messiah
is much much more tangible,
much more powerful,
than being led by a cloud,
or being led by a pillar.
I think that God wants us
to know His voice,
more and more and more.
He has something for you today.
By the way it’s Shabbat again,
let’s dedicate this day,
to a day for the LORD.
That is rest,
that is relaxation,
a day of blessing,
a day of serving Him.
What really I learned about
hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit.
He wants to direct us everyday
There are divine appointments
for you today.
People that you will meet today,
that are ordained and
directed from God.
There are things that He
wants to accomplish today,
and in the coming week
that are ordained and directed of Him.
I remember hearing
this story one time
I heard it, it was a
testimony on television.
But it was a woman,
a young woman who lived
on the east coast.
I believe the United States,
and she was having her quiet time.
She got Isaiah 54:15
it said “if anybody fiercely assails you
it will not be from me,
and whoever assaults you
will fall because of you”
The Holy Spirit directed her
to meditate on that, memorize that.
Which she did she said “why?”
She didn’t know.
About 2 weeks later,
there came a knock
at the door one evening
after she got home from work.
She opened the door
a man burst in,
put a knife to her throat,
and threatened to rape her.
Immediately that word
she had been meditating on,
came rising up out of her spirit.
“if anyone fiercely assails you
it will not be from me,
and they will fall because of you.”
And she made a choice,
to implement that word
and she told that man,
“you will not touch me,
you will not harm me,
because I am in blood covenant
with God almighty, I dwell in Him
He dwells in me.
Do you know what that means?
That means whatever you do to me,
you do to the Lord Jesus Christ.
What have you
come here to do today?
To rape Jesus Christ?”
the man said “What?… What?
what are you talking about?”
She just continued to speak
the word that God had given her,
and the reason she had boldness is,
the Holy Spirit had directed her
to meditate on that scripture.
It was strong within her.
To make a long story short
that man did everything he could
to try to get her in fear.
She wouldn’t move
he said “I’ll kill you
if” you don’t submit to me
She said “my life doesn’t belong to me,
my life belongs to
the Lord Jesus Christ
and if it’s my day to die,
I’m ok with that.
I don’t think it is though,
This is my apartment,
you have no authority here.
In the name of
Jesus the Messiah get out!
That man turned and fled,
ran out of the apartment.
How was she able to do that,
with that kind of
confidence and boldness?
I believe it was because,
she was following
the pillar of fire by night
and the cloud by day.
What does that mean?
She was listening to
the voice of the Holy Spirit.
That was a familiar voice to her.
There could be a million scriptures
you could read in the Bible,
and you could read
a different one every day.
Like the one that we just read about
the fire and the cloud,
but the one that she read that day,
the Holy Spirit quickened and said
“this is for you meditate on it”
I believe God has
something for you today.
There’s something
He’s speaking to you
personally, specifically today.
He wants to lead you,
and direct you and guide you
personally and specifically.
Thank God for the Holy Spirit,
who is the comforter,
who abides in you,
if you are born again,
if your life belongs
to Jesus the Messiah.
Then the Holy Spirit
will comfort you,
direct you, guide you
and lead you more strongly
than God did the Israelites
by fire and by cloud.
God bless you,
enjoy your sabbath day.
