Waiting for the Cloud to Move

The Lord has brought many verses to me over the past few weeks after we learned we could not proceed in the adoption process.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
trust: to place confidence, depend, hope, entrust, to rely on, a practical willingness to let God hold me

Do not let you hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. John 14:1

Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust. Psalm 40:4a

Is anything too hard for the Lord? Genesis 18:14

Those who hope (trust in God's power, patience in His timing) in the Lord will renew their strength. Isaiah 40:31

I am thankful for the Lord and His word. I am thankful for friends and family who are and who have been praying for us. I am thankful from so many from my Yahoo Group who have walked the path of adoption who have offered their encouragement and support. I am thankful for the two amazing boys the Lord had blessed us with.

I have been asking God for wisdom and revelation in all this. Should I hold on to the dream of another adoption or let it go? Are you calling us to adopt again Lord and should I begin fundraising? Or is our family complete? I have not felt an answer either way, simply the need to wait. i have struggled. Why did You call us Lord to step out when You knew our path would be blocked right away? So next I prayed for the Lord to give Mike revelation as to what to do! No answer that way either. I have beseeched the Lord - tell me what to do and I'll do it!!

Yesterday as I read in Numbers 9 of the Israelites moving through the desert, following the Lord who was in the form of a cloud, I finally got it - God's revelation is for me to wait - to wait for His cloud to move:
Whenever the cloud lifted from above the Tent, the Israelites set out; wherever the cloud settled, the Israelites encamped. At the LORD’s command the Israelites set out, and at his command they encamped. As long as the cloud stayed over the tabernacle, they remained in camp. When the cloud remained over the tabernacle a long time, the Israelites obeyed the LORD’s order and did not set out. Sometimes the cloud was over the tabernacle only a few days; at the LORD’s command they would encamp, and then at his command they would set out. Sometimes the cloud stayed only from evening till morning, and when it lifted in the morning, they set out. Whether by day or by night, whenever the cloud lifted, they set out. Whether the cloud stayed over the tabernacle for two days or a month or a year, the Israelites would remain in camp and not set out; but when it lifted, they would set out. At the LORD’s command they encamped, and at the LORD’s command they set out. Numbers 9:17-23
