Willing To Wait...Ready to Move

Numbers 10
21 And sometimes the cloud remained from evening until morning. And when the cloud lifted in the morning, they set out, or if it continued for a day and a night, when the cloud lifted they set out.22 Whether it was two days, or a month, or a longer time, that the cloud continued over the tabernacle, abiding there, the people of Israel remained in camp and did not set out, but when it lifted they set out.

Are you sensing a shift...a change of direction...a new adventure?  I think a lot of us are - but the key is to do nothing unless God moves first.  There are a lot of selfish reasons to move...after all, it's exciting to do something new.  There are a lot of selfish reasons to stay put...there is security and comfort in the known.  That's why I like what the Israelite's did - they were ready to move in a moment's notice - but were willing to stay for was all dependent upon the movement of God.

Be willing to wait...and ready to move.
