Are you going in the right dirrection?

Exo 13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:
Exo 13:22 He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.

Num 9:20 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; according to the commandment of the LORD they abode in their tents, and according to the commandment of the LORD they journeyed.
Num 9:21 And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed.
Num 9:22 Or whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the children of Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they journeyed.
Num 9:23 At the commandment of the LORD they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the LORD they journeyed: they kept the charge of the LORD, at the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

Just like the Israelites were are to be led only of God- to move ahead of Him into hostile territory was a diaster- to stay behind and loose sight of Him left them at the mercy of the elements- niether choice led to a great survival rate- we are to be sensitive in what our God is doing and how and were He is moving- it is the greatest of joys to be in the center of His will for our lives (even if that's in a desert place) and the greatest tragedy to be left behind- still doing our duties by with no cloud nor pillar- selah
