If God gave you the instruction to go, He will protect you. This is the night the Egyptians should have had the people of Israel. Its was a straight line on the compass. Well, when you read Psa.23:1-4, it tells you of God as a father. My son used to be very active when he was young. We had to be sure all things were out of the way. One day, he broke his hand, I did not only take him to the doctor, I had to sleep with him to make sure he was alright. At another time, he pushed a piece of chalk up his nose. It got stuck. That night, we couldn’t sleep until the chalk was remove. That’s what parents do to demonstrate their love. Here God changed locations and operational patterns just to protect the people of God. It does not natter how close the enemy may be, God has a covenant like a parent to protect you. When Christ was nailed to the cross, and He cried, heaven shook. There was an earthquake. That was the reaction of the father. God is watching over you jealously. He will react to every oppression concerning you. That He is quiet does not mean He can’t react. Today if you do not see Him where He used to be, don’t be afraid. He is changing locations for your protection.
And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night. Exodus 14:19-20 KJV
