Devotion for Saturday, November 26, 2022

“We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain” (2 Peter 1:18).

Peter was a witness of the transfiguration.  James and John, with him, were there and told to say nothing until after the resurrection.   This same Peter gives you his testimony.  Do you believe it when an eye witness tells you something?  We live in an age of skepticism, so that is one more thing to pray to have removed so that you may not be unbelieving, but believing.

Lord, there are many things I have heard and seen.  Many have heard and seen things and they have told me what they saw.  One thing I know, the truth always has a certain ring to it.  Help me to hear truth when it is spoken and to cling to it.  Guide me in truth that I would hold fast to the true witness and good testimony, living according to Your word of truth now and forever.  Lead me, Lord, by Your goodness and open my ears to hear.

Lord Jesus, beyond hearing these good words of testimony, help me in order that Your word  would pierce my heart and become in me living water.  Let all truth flow deeply in me that untruths would be washed away.  You are the One Lord Jesus Who has come so that we may have life and have it abundantly.  Lead me in the life You have given me, leading me now and forever to be held fast by the truth.  Amen.
