Today I sit and listen to rain falling outside and wonder to myself,
"Lord which road is the right path?"

When we are uncertain Exodus 13:17-18 says,
When Pharaoh finally let the people go, God did not lead them on the road that runs through Philistine territory, even though that was the shortest way from Egypt to the Promised Land. God said, "If the people are faced with a battle, they might change their minds and return to Egypt. So God led them along a route through the wilderness toward the Red Sea, [fn] and the Israelites left Egypt like a marching army."

We all know the story of what happened then. Interestingly enough they didn't have to walk blindly because in verse 21 it says,
The LORD guided them by a pillar of cloud during the day and a pillar of fire at night. That way they could travel whether it was day or night.

When choosing the path to travel it is so important to keep our eyes on Jesus. We can't be led by our own understanding, but must be led by the Holy Spirit. My prayer today is that the Lord open my eyes to be able to see the pillar of cloud during the day and the pillar of fire at night. Of course this can only be done by getting to know the Holy Spirit and understanding His leading. God will lead, guide and direct us to dry ground.

I don't want you to forget, dear brothers and sisters, what happened to our ancestors in the wilderness long ago. God guided all of them by sending a cloud that moved along ahead of them, and he brought them all safely through the waters of the sea on dry ground. 1 Corinthians 10:1
