Go with the flow

What is Jesus saying personally to me today – Go with the flow

I love how Peter is so impulsive and spontaneous wanting to build tents and hang on to the moment of being in the company of greatness. Jesus has other plans and even while Peter is speaking things are changing. If we are to be changeable and transformed, then we need to go with the flow of God, as learning about his love is a never ending journey. Even if the moment is a good one, it is obvious that there is so much more so be prepared for even greater things.

Thank you for speaking to me Jesus

How do I respond to what Jesus is saying personally to me today?

Change is something that I am familiar with, look forward to and know is necessary. The message for me today is to go with the flow of God and keep doing what I am doing. Lean in to His love, listen to his word and have the courage to continue to allow his love transform me. Keep doing all the practices that I have been instructed and called to do, don’t stop now.

Prayer:

Lord,
coniute to mould me into your vision of me.
I seek you word and the knowledge of your love and wisdom,
Thank you for the encouragement to continue.
Amen.

Matthew 17:1-9

Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain where they could be alone. There in their presence he was transfigured: his face shone like the sun and his clothes became as white as the light. Suddenly Moses and Elijah appeared to them; they were talking with him. Then Peter spoke to Jesus. ‘Lord,’ he said ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; if you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He was still speaking when suddenly a bright cloud covered them with shadow, and from the cloud there came a voice which said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour. Listen to him.’ When they heard this the disciples fell on their faces overcome with fear. But Jesus came up and touched them. ‘Stand up,’ he said ‘do not be afraid.’ And when they raised their eyes they saw no one but only Jesus.
As they came down from the mountain Jesus gave them this order, ‘Tell no one about the vision until the Son of Man has risen from the dead.’
