What does God want me to do? That’s a legitimate question that each of us has asked ourselves at some point in time. And in Numbers 9, we are going to see the Israelites having to react to the will of God when He let them know it was time to pack up and move out. God had let them know that He would lead them through the wilderness, all the way to the land of promise. He appeared to them in a pillar of cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night. And when either one of the pillars moved from its place over the tabernacle, it was time for the Israelites to follow. They didn’t get a vote. They weren’t asked if it was convenient or fit into their schedule. When God said, “move,” they were to jump. It was all about obedience, and trusting that God knew what was best for them. Yet, the uncertainty associated with this kind of arrangement had to have left them frustrated at times. But that’s where trust was to come in. God knew best. He had a plan and was working it to perfection. All they had to do was follow.
