Clouds and Fire...

Crocker preached on Exodus 13:21 yesterday. 

"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." ~Exodus 13:21

It was not the first time I had heard this verse....or actually even thought about it. 
However, it was the first time I slowed down enough to really think about.

That "Pillar of Fire", was not just  flames leading the way.
It was Very God Himself.
He was Personally providing Warmth & Security 
to scared, tired and anxious people on cold desert nights.

That "Pillar of Cloud", was not just an overcast day or a coincidence. 
It was Very God Himself. 
He was Personally providing Shade and Peace.
 to wiped out, insecure and beat down people.  
Make no mistake.....He still is. 

We don't need to be standing in a desert to see Him.
He is providing, wherever you are in need.
Whether or not you and I are recognizing an entirely different story.
It might not look like a blazing torch pillar of clouds...
Chances are, it might look like a friend, a song, a text, a break in the calendar, a stranger...

Chances are it might look like you. Yes, you, to someone else.

God provides.
Always has
Always will

God, Thank You for Showing up.

In His Dust,
