3-3-16 “Listening”

Have you caught a glimpse of His glory?

When Jesus was transfigured on the mountain (in the presence of Peter, James and John), His heavenly glory burned bright as the sun. Excited by what he saw, Peter immediately began talking of his plan for monuments, but the scripture says while he was still speaking God interrupted and this happened:

“…a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him! And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were greatly afraid.” – Matthew 17:5-6 NKJV

Once again, Peter was talking when he should’ve been listening. Of course, Peter isn’t the only example of “Sudden Speech Syndrome”. We too can suffer from the urge to speak without listening. Part of seeing the glory was to truly listen; “Hear Him!” the voice of God commanded.

Have you caught a glimpse of His glory? Perhaps you did long ago, but the brightness of the moment has faded. If so, prayerfully look to the throne of God…see Him sitting beside the Father in glorious power…and listen. If you’ve never caught that glimpse before, today would be a great time to prayerfully look toward His majestic presence…and listen.
