What an amazing sight this must have been!
A pillar of cloud by day, and pillar of fire by night; the very presence of God hovering over the tent of meeting. And when God chose to guide His people to another place, to a new destination on their way to promise, He would rise up as a signal for the people to get ready. Then He would lead them, always out in front.
Since He was this brilliant Usher, this glorious cloud, they always knew He was near. Since He stayed in front of them, they always. knew where to go.
Oh that we would ask God to be our Ushering Glory, even today!
He may not be that spectacular sight of long ago in the wilderness, but He has not changed. He is still present in our lives when we trust Him with our heart. He is still one who guides and will lead us... if we will follow.
It only takes a humble heart and a desire to seek Him daily. When we cry out to Him, He will meet us where we are... offering His pillar of cloud to comfort us, His blazing fire to light our way. Yahweh is ever our Ushering Glory
