Rest until God moves you. We get anxious while waiting for things to happen that we’ve prayed for. Sometimes we wait and wait, and still nothing happens. This is when things get difficult; if we are not careful, we will begin to move when God hasn’t released us. When we go out on our own, without God, our path becomes foggy, and hard to maneuver, we become hurt, sometimes physically, and sometimes financially. It will cause setbacks, and may prolong his answer. Unlike the Israelites, we don’t have a pillar of cloud by day, or fire by night to guide us, or tell us when to move. However, we do have the Holy Spirit in residence, he will give us clues, and make our pathway clear. I’ve learned that when I try to fit a square peg into a round hole by force, it doesn’t fit right; that’s when I know I’m moving without his guidance. Learn to pickup on his clues; he speaks to all of us in a language we understand, all we have to do is tune in.
Throughout all their journeys, whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the people of Israel would set out. But if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out till the day that it was taken up. Exodus 40:36-37
