“For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea” (1 Corinthians 10:1).
Being comfortable, having a manageable life, and a predictable routine are foreign concepts to the life of faith. These are the very things that make one resistant to change. Everyone says they are open to change until change is thrust upon them. Such was the case for Israel. They spoke great, hope-filled words of faith up until deliverance meant something different than what they had ever known; something uncomfortable and unpredictable. The clouds of change upon you may, in actuality, be God’s cloud of provision for a greater, but different, future.
