Day 233

PILLAR OF FIRE

Neither the pillar of cloud by day

nor the pillar of fire by night left its place

in front of the people.

Exodus 13:22

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, you will face danger repeatedly. Obstacles will line your path. Darkness will obscure your view. Terror will stalk you like a lion on the loose. But I am your pillar of fire to guide you through. I will blaze a trail for you that will tunnel through every mountain, burn through every forest, and clear every cloud. Stay close to My side. There, the smoke won't get in your eyes.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Even when I can't see a thing in front of me, there You are, Lord, blazing a trail as a pillar of fire.  Just as You led the Israelites out of bondage by Your own raging forest fire, You send Your protection out ahead of me. Lord, I can't go wrong following You.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Some fires give warmth, light, and comfort; others destroy everything in their paths.
