Following the leading of the Holy Spirit is necessary for us to successfully carry out the Lord's will on the earth. Before I came to Christ, I had no clear purpose in life and so life revolved around me. The more I grow in Christ, the more I see how life is about Jesus. The Lord gives us the privilege of being directly involved with the setting up his kingdom on the earth. When the great I Am made himself known to the Israelites, he gave them the Law, but he also led them by his Spirit. We can learn a lot from how the Lord interacted with the ancient people of Israel, because we see the Spirit leading them and subduing their enemies.
The cloud of the Lord was over them by day when they set out from the camp. Whenever the ark set out, Moses said, “Rise up, Lord! May your enemies be scattered; may your foes flee before you.” Whenever it came to rest, he said, “Return, Lord, to the countless thousands of Israel.” - Numbers 10:34-36
