The Transfiguration of Jesus before Peter, James, and John follows the confession of Faith by Peter. This is no accident. Once Peter professes his undying belief in Jesus, then God grants him and James and John a glimpse of what they believe.
We all need encouragement. Every once in a while God grants us a clear peek at Jesus. May we cherish these moments, and may they sustain us in times of trouble and despair.
Dear Jesus, I trust in You. I know that You are the Messiah of God. When I need it most, grant me a glimpse of Your glory.
