Exodus 13:21 By day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give the light so that they could travel by day or night
This is always on my list of favorite verses. Mainly I guess because it reveals, assures, shows me, and everybody else who believes the bible is truth, that God will guide you where He leads you. What greater comfort is that? He lead the Children of Israel, His chosen people, out of Egypt. True they had been enslaved there; treated poorly, but Egypt was their home. The only home they knew, and God didn’t just lead them from this familiar area to a foreign land and leave them stranded. Nope He guided them by pillars of fire and cloud. His guidance was so big no one can miss it they just had to look. He also preformed a few miracles along the way. Same as today; God still guides His chosen people. He still lights their way. Maybe not with pillars of fire and cloud but in ways that are impossible not to see if you simply look for them and if we look closely along our journey we will see that He probably preforms some miracles for us too.
