Moving Only By God’s Instruction!

The Lord used this cloud to tell the Israelites when to move their camp and where to set it up again. As long as the cloud covered the tent, the Israelites did not break camp. But when the cloud moved, they followed it, and wherever it stopped, they camped and stayed there,  whether it was only one night, a few days, a month, or even a year. As long as the cloud remained over the tent, the Israelites stayed where they were. But when the cloud moved, so did the Israelites.

Memory Verse: If you do what the Lord wants, he will make certain  each step you take is sure. Psalm 37:2

Everywhere you turn to right now, there is some sort of bad news looming around. It’s almost like the negativity is so visible that you can almost not see anything positive around you, even if you searched. As a result of this, there is a lot of movement. People are now just moving towards that which they assume is best for them. There is constant movement and change happening, people are now not just walking, they are running in fear of the unknown and some are even unknowingly running towards that which is designed to hurt or destroy them, just because they cannot see, they run into error.

A few years ago, I was planning a house move and praying as i did. My prayers were in all categories but of all, I wanted a place that would feel like a home for the family. I embarked on my viewing journey and continued praying, my friends gave me a list of places that were family friendly, but I wanted a place that was God’s desire for me.

God spoke and I was glad! The instructions were clear and precise. Before I could view the house, there was all sorts of hindrances, the sellers had a month holiday booked and if i was interested in viewing, we had to wait another month but once they came back, I was able to view it and that was the house we moved into. God gives an instruction, and the devil tries to get in the way but if we  move earlier or later, we may later live in regret.

Move  only when you have clarity and full instruction!



  • Father I an grateful for your amazingness in my life
  • Thank you for directing, guiding and always instructing me
