Day 8 - Hear Him
Matthew 17:5b, 8 NLT
“This is My dearly loved Son, who brings Me great joy, Listen to Him”.... And when they looked up, Moses and Elijah were gone, and they saw only Jesus.
On the Mount of Transfiguration three disciples had an experience that showed us the Father’s plan for a New Covenant. Jesus took Peter, James and John up to the top of a mountain where He was transfisgured into His glorified state. Up until this point, they related to God through the law (Moses), or through the prophets (Elijah).
After the vision, Peter eagerly o ered to erect three tabernacles – one for each. Then a loud voice from Heaven was heard saying, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to Him”. When the disciples looked up, they saw only Jesus.
On the mountain, God made it clear that we would only discover His pleasure by following Jesus. God’s grace is freely given to those who have received new life in Him. Some mes though, there are areas of our lives where we do not fully embrace God’s grace. There may be circumstances or areas where we s ll try to earn our way to the Father. You cannot earn God’s pleasure, but you can walk in it as you follow Jesus Christ. As you seek God today, seek Him for a greater revela on of Jesus in your heart; for only then are you reminded that you are a beloved child of God. He finds pleasure in you.
As we close out this first week, continue to pray fervently for the main areas of concern in your life. Trust God to bring an answer as you journal your thoughts and inspirations through this time.
