Today’s Scripture: And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” Matthew 17:4 ESV
Ok, we may not be on the mountain with Jesus during the transfiguration but it is good we are here. We can see and experience Jesus and the light of God right here. Are we looking for God’s vision or our own?
No matter where you are today, God’s instruction in verse five still stands. “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him. Are you looking at and listening to Jesus? Are you at the mountain top, in the valley or somewhere in between?
It is good for us to be here. Our understanding may say otherwise but if we look to God’s light and listen to Him we can trust and know, LORD, it is good I am here.
Wherever we are as Jesus stated in verse seven “Rise, and have no fear.” (ESV) Have no fear for He is here too. Yes, it is good to be here.
Today’s Prayer: Heavenly Father, I praise You and thank You for Your Son and Your Holy Spirit. Through Your Spirit I see and hear what You intend. Thank You for having me here in Your light. I am here with You; thank You for being here with me. LORD, help me see You and Your ways. Amen
