“Up The Mountain” By Kirk Hunt
Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.
Matthew 17: 1-2 NKJV
You cannot see everything you need to see in the valley. You cannot hear everything you need to hear in the middle of the clang and clack of regular life. Sometimes, you need to go up the mountain.
Christians often speak of a “mountain top” experience. Jesus’ transfiguration is the prototype event. It was a place and space where Jesus revealed more of Himself to his Apostles.
The extraordinary display had a practical purpose. Jesus wanted them to see and understand. Something they could not see, despite their close proximity to Jesus.
His glory is part of His divine nature. His continuing unity with Father-God is part of the redemption plan. Even the “inner circle” of Apostles were changed by the experience and revelation.
God wants to reveal Himself to you. He needs you to peer into His glory. He wants you to see and understand His purpose.
Maybe you need to find a special spot above the tree line. Perhaps you just need to sit still in a quiet spot. Either way, God is speaking to you. Are you listening?
Think: God wants to revel Himself to me. Am I in the right place? Am I listening?
Pray: “Lord, help me find the right place and space so you can reveal Yourself to me.
