" . . . let us make there tabernacles; one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah" - not knowing what he said. (Matthew 17:4)
Some, like Peter, suppose Jesus is pleased with our earnest efforts to do good and make a difference in the world in His name, but that is a grave error. Peter sought to do what he considered a great and noble thing, yet the thing he should have done was be quiet and listen - "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!" (Matthew 17:5) We must learn to wait on the Lord, to be still, and hear Him clearly. Our "work" is to abide in Jesus, and that takes much more time and effort than we first thought. Be still today and wait, because you can do nothing good without Him; but be encouraged, because all good things are possible with Him. "He who abides in Me, and I in Him, bears much fruit . . ."
Let's Pray - Dear God, I fully realize Your ways are superior to mine. Every day, I will ask You to fill me with the knowledge of Your will. I humble myself in Your sight. Amen.
