God is commanding the Israelites who were in their camp to watch out the movement of the ark of the covenant of God. They were not supposed to figure out where to go and how to go about it for they have never been on that road. They were asked to move out from their position and follow it, if they see the ark of the Lord get carried out by the priests.
What could we observe the secret God is showing His people to experience His guidance and presence as they travel on the road they have never been on before? See also 2 Pet 1:3-4 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
What warning could we observe God is giving to His people against worldly impact on them?
What could we observe about the surety of the impact of the covenant/promise of God? See also 2 Cor 1:20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.
What is the Lord saying about your attitude toward the covenant/promise of God in your walk with the Lord? See also Josh 1:8 Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
How do you want to respond to His voice that you might experience His presence/guidance in life?
