Love the Lord your God, listen to His voice and hold fast to Him, for the Lord is your life! Deut. 30:20

Almost a year ago, my dear Aunt Millie passed away.  I am reading a devotional book of hers, "Hope for Each Day" by Billy Graham.  Words of wisdom and faith.  Today's devotion:

The Clouds of Life

 Clouds will come.  They are part of life.

But by God's grace we need not be depressed by them.  Just as clouds can protect us from the brightness of the sun, life's clouds can reveal the glory of God, and from their lofty height God speaks to us.

Like the children of Israel, we are travelers to the Promised Land.  As they traveled through the wilderness, the Bible says, "The Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way."

 Perhaps like them, you are passing through a wilderness right now.    

 It may be the wilderness of a broken marriage, or a financial reversal, or a major disappointment, or a threatening illness.

 It may even be a wilderness of doubt or sin.

 But God is with you in the wilderness, and He goes before you to encourage and guide you.

 He brought the children of Israel through the wilderness - and He will bring you through it as well, as you look in faith to Him.

 Never forget:  "He is the living God, and steadfast forever" (Daniel 6:26)
