Seeing the Move of God in the Cloud

Right now as I look around I only see noise, fog, fear, loathing, anger and a storm of huge proportions.

This is not only about the season of election, that's bad enough, but the news from the whole world is hard to digest.  It can even be frightening.  We have declined as a nation and can no longer tell ourselves we are great.  God's kingdom keeps expanding, and that is the nation we must adhere and pledge our allegiance to.  It has no flag except the banner Jehovah Nissi.  The Lord Himself IS the banner.  It is over you and it declares victory and His love for you.

He has no motto except Holy Holy Holy.  For that is who he is.  The nation of God standing around the throne on the glassy sea sing the anthem of the Lord "Great and Marvelous are your Works Oh GOD". 

It is this that helps.  Yet we know that God isn't hands off.  Somehow He is up to something.  He allows the devil to overplay his hand.  He allows good people even as He did Peter to be misled and fall.  There is much deception.  Still the enemy is right there on the other side of the cloud of his Glory. He sees it as a storm, as a threat.  He is still waiting to strike.  Yet.. somehow the confusion is held off. 

Exodus 14:17-20 My great glory will be displayed through Pharaoh and his troops, his chariots, and his charioteers. When my glory is displayed through them, all Egypt will see my glory and know that I am the Lord!”  Then the angel of God, who had been leading the people of Israel, moved to the rear of the camp. The pillar of cloud also moved from the front and stood behind them. The cloud settled between the Egyptian and Israelite camps. As darkness fell, the cloud turned to fire, lighting up the night. But the Egyptians and Israelites did not approach each other all night.
The enemy, the Pharaohs of this world are in full attack mode.  They even have some of the camp of Israel helping them and hearing the attacks.  They are in rebellion. 

God will make a way.  No matter what He will.   That much is certain.  Let us not grow weary.  Let us not fear.  Even in the darkness His fire still burns.  Time to look UP.  Redemption is Near.  The nation of God is intact and marching across the sea with courage and confidence.

Your words always make me stop and think, Thank You! I have not been fearing because I trust in the Lord and know that all that will happen is in his plan.
