In his Sunday morning message, my husband made reference to the people of God who don’t move when the cloud of God moves. The cloud of God represents His glory, His anointing and it is expedient that the people understand that our God is a God of movement and timing. What has stunted many of us in the faith is that we have missed the movement of the cloud. We have camped ourselves out in a matter and some of us have been on that same camp site for so long that we have become comfortable, stubborn, and resistant to change. When the cloud of God moved, Israel moved. They kept their eyes on the movements of the Lord and followed the Lord where He led them.
You will miss your hour of visitation when you become comfortable in who you are because you won’t perceive the reason to change. You will miss your hour of visitation when you become relaxed because you are too comfortable to move. When a person is comfortable and relaxed in who they are and God brings change, they fight. Why? Because you are tampering with their comfort.
Jesus said in John 5:19, “I assure you: The Son is not able to do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son also does these things in the same way.”
Jesus knew the movements of the Lord. He knew the cloud of God and wherever God was, He went. It didn’t matter to him whether He had to confront devils, human agents of devils, the sick, the dead, or the immoral. If God moved in a certain area, Jesus followed pursuit. It makes you wonder, doesn’t it? Why are we still here….when God is ….there? Let us discipline our spirits to follow the Lord wherever He leads us. Let us remain open to change. Let us have an ear to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the church.
