I will meditate on Your precepts and think about Your ways. I will delight in Your statutes; I will not forget Your word. Psalm 119:15-16

I will shake the house of Israel among all the nations, as one shakes a sieve, but not a pebble will fall to the ground. Amos 9:9

All three synoptic Gospels record the transfiguration, but only Matthew’s account supplies the detail that the three disciples fell facedown to the ground. I am convinced that the people of God miss many appropriate opportunities to fall facedown to the ground, not in an emotional frenzy but in complete awe of God. Oftentimes we don’t have a clue who we’re dealing with. I believe one of Jesus’ chief reasons for transfiguring Himself before the three disciples was to say, “I am not like you. This is just a glimpse of who I am.
