Moses, Elijah, the transfigured Jesus, the cloud and the voice from heaven all led to falling facedown to the ground in fear. Then this happens:
“But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.” (Matthew 17 v 7-8)
Are you falling down today under the weight of fear, confusion and uncertainty? Them falling down may be a result of worship but it could also be a response to what they simply could not understand, overwhelmed and way outside their comfort zone they hide their face from that what is confusing.
Then He comes, Jesus the Shepherd, with that gentle touch to say He is here with us, we don’t need to bury our head in the sand, we can look up; we can get up and not be afraid for He is with us.
They saw no one else except Jesus. He is all-sufficient. Moses and Elijah withdraw, Jesus remains.
It is not a question of whether you can face your fears but it is about whether you are facing Jesus. Does he have your focus today?
