“Jesus took … them up a high mountain to be alone.” (Mark 9:2, NLT)

“We have all experienced times of exultation on the mountain, when we have seen things from God’s perspective and have wanted to stay there. But God will never allow us to stay there …

We are inclined to think that everything that happens is to be turned into useful teaching. In actual fact, it is to be turned into something better than teaching, character. The mountaintop is not meant to teach us anything, it is meant to make us into something. There is a terrible trap in always asking, “What’s the use of this experience?” We can never measure spiritual matters in that way. The moments on the mountaintop are rare moments, and they are meant for something in God’s purpose.”

(Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest, October 1)
