Numbers 9:1-end –In the first part of this chapter, the LORD commanded them to celebrate the Feast of Passover because it’s been a year since they left Egypt. They were supposed to do this at the prescribed time, the fourteenth day of the first month. The second part was so powerful that I wish we can be led by the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night like He led the children of Israel throughout their journey.

Verse 18 says “At the commandment of the LORD the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the LORD they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.” This visible manifestation of the LORD among the children of Israel made them peculiar and precious children of God. He used these people as a role model to show His love, protection, provision, and all that our God is to mankind. He created us all. Psalm 24:1 says, “the earth is the LORD’s and the fulness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein.” Psalm 100:3 says “Know ye that the LORD He is our God, it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves, we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.”  So all that He showers on the people of Israel are all for everyone to enjoy if they consider Him as their father or God too.

Once you recognize this powerful God as your God you can depend on Him for all your needs. He will protect you with His pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. He will feed you and guide you because He is your Shepherd.  He will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Please make Him your all in all, and you will be glad you did. God bless you.
