Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud settled on it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. Throughout all their journeys, whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the people of Israel would set out. But if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the Lord was on the tabernacle by day, and fire was in it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel throughout all their journeys.
God wanted a place to be with his people, and so he made the tent of meeting. But he also wanted a permanent way to be with his people, and so he sent Jesus to “tabernacle” amongst us. He is here. When you do not see the fruit of his presence in your life, perhaps that’s a good sign to change what you’re doing. Realign your life with his word and with his people. Follow him. Trust him. And be part of the new temple God is making with “living bricks,” you and me. Follow Jesus today.

There’s still plenty of time to start. Just read Genesis, Job, and Exodus and you’re all caught up!
