“Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro… and he led the flock to the far side of the desert and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush.”
Some of us think that once we’re saved we must always be on the mountaintop of extraordinary joy and revelation. But this is not God’s way.
Those high spiritual times are not promised to us. But a daily life of communion with God is. And that should be enough for us.
He will give us those times of exceptional revelation but only if it is the right and necessary thing for us.
Only three disciples were allowed to see the Transfiguration, and the same three also experienced the darkness of Gethsemane.
Christ Himself fulfilled His life’s work not in the glory of a mountain top but in the valley. It was there that He was truly and completely the Messiah.
As Christians we should expect Christ on the ordinary road of life. We should not seek out sensational experiences.
Rather we should desire for Christ to fellowship with us through our everyday work and service, and be our companion on our ordinary journey.
Let us pray that our simple everyday life will be transformed by His presence and His companionship. Amen!
