What does Psalm 78:14 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 78:14

In the daytime also he led them with a cloud
Which was in the form of a pillar, and went before them, and the Lord in it, and directed their way, and protected them from heat; see ( Exodus 13:21 Exodus 13:22 ) ( Nehemiah 9:12 Nehemiah 9:19 ) this was typical of Christ, who is a shadow and security from the heat of a fiery law, the flaming sword of justice, the wrath of God, which is poured forth like fire, the fiery darts of Satan, and from hurt by any enemy whatever; see ( Isaiah 4:5 Isaiah 4:6 ) ( 25:4 ) , and who leads his people through the wilderness of this world by his Spirit, by his word, and by his own example; and who is the best and safest guide to follow:

and all the night with a light of fire;
which also was in the form of a pillar, and went before them, and gave light in the night, and the Lord was in it; and this also was typical of Christ, who is the light of his people amidst all their darkness in this world.
