In the Old Testament, when God had released Israel from their captivity in Egypt, He guided them through the desert by a pillar of cloud by day and a flame of fire by night. They didn’t know where they were going, except that they were looking for the promised land. I’m reminded of it because where I’m sitting while writing this, the fog is as thick as pea soup! When I stepped outside, I couldn’t see very far, but could feel the moisture in the air. The Israelites wandered in the desert for forty years, and the cloud and flame never left them. What an incredible sight that must have been! It’s amazing, with this fog, the wind has stilled and the water has calmed. It’s so hard to remember that God is with us when we are struggling. Let this be a reminder that while you’re in the wilderness and your head is in a fog, rely on the Lord for guidance.
The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from before the people. Exodus 13:22
