Matthew 17:1-3 (KJV)
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
Peter, James and John were able to see the glory of their Lord Jesus. It was amazing for them to see their God in all His splendor.
Jesus was transfigured before Peter, James and John and was no longer just a man but God. His glory shown forth before them.
Oh Lord, I pray that people will no longer miss out on the experiences you have for them. So many times people allow fear to creep into their lives and your desires for them are no longer heard. Instead of giving into your desires for their lives, they instead doubt the fact that they can and should do it and back out. This is saddening to see in many so-called Christian lives now-a-days. You see them worshiping with their hands up high in church but when you have a calling for their lives, it is a different story in how they react. I know this to be true Lord, as this used to be me. I used to hear Your promptings all the time, like I do now, but in the past my doubts got in the way. I'd see people that were struggling and have an instinct to stop and care for them, and instead I'd continue driving. Afterword's, I'd feel terrible about it. These events happened countless times until I finally decided, Lord, that following You and doing Your will was most important. It didn't matter what I thought about things and how they people that of me. I instead decided to just trust in Your desires for my life. Because of this, there are now countless blessings, that I've received from these experiences. Thank You Lord. You have allowed me to not only be blessed but also bless other people's lives. I am so happy that You are still leading me to this day. You have brought me the greatest joy of all. This same joy I want to share with the world. I love You God. Amen.
