Climb Every Mountain

Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.
- Matthew 17:1
Does Jesus try to lead you? Do you let Him? How would you feel if He asked you to go to a remote place with Him by yourself?

When Jesus led His disciples up the mountain, they were treated to a wonderful experience: the Transfiguration. If we allow Jesus to lead us, if we go where He asks, who knows what wonders lay in store for us! We have to trust Him though. He always has our best interests at heart, so even if we're not sure where he's leading us, or why, we should trust Him and follow Him without question.

Another reason Jesus often went up on a mountain was to pray, in secret and without distractions. We should follow Him there. We should pray with Him up on that mountain, be with Him, spend some quality time with Him without distractions. Only through prayer like this can we deepen our relationship with Him. You can't get to know someone if you don't spend time with them. And you can't get to know them deeply if you're always in a group with other people.

So follow Jesus up that mountain. Experience His glory and spend some quality time with Him. Then ask Him where else He wants to lead you.
