#devotional “Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray. As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening. And behold, two men talked with Him, who were Moses and Elijah, who appeared in glory and spoke of His decease which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem. But Peter and those with him were heavy with sleep; and when they were fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men who stood with Him. Then it happened, as they were parting from Him, that Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah”—not knowing what he said.
—Luke 9:28–33 (NKJV)
Peter shows us that sometimes in the presence of holiness, it behooves us to be quiet.
When God roars in the wind or shines in the morning sun. When his spirit is evident to us in our solitary times or he draws near on a walk alone.
Like Peter, we “we may be tempted to interrupt this move of God with words or actions. But in these moments, there’s really nothing to say.
Let’s just experience his presence around us. Be awed by his work in the world. And be silent.
God, in your presence, I sit in silence.” #faith #hope #Sunday #Christian #methodist #catholic #baptist #conservative #liberal
