On the day that the tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, the tent of the testimony. And at evening it was over the tabernacle like the appearance of fire until morning. So it was always: the cloud covered it by day and the appearance of fire by night. And whenever the cloud lifted from over the tent, after that the people of Israel set out, and in the place where the cloud settled down, there the people of Israel camped. At the command of the Lord the people of Israel set out, and at the command of the Lord they camped. As long as the cloud rested over the tabernacle, they remained in camp. Numbers 9:15-18
God is different from all our false gods in that He is real, and is capable of leading us. The false gods of our day are thin disguises for our own will and desires. Money, power, and pleasure are true north for the lust that burns within us.
Romans 8:14 tells us, “All who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” He is the one we follow and He is our destination.
