Matthew 17:8

And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

This particular scripture describes the experience of Peter, James and John with Jesus at the Mount of Transfiguration. At the Mount of Transfiguration Jesus was transfigured in brightness and glory before three of His closest companions. Yet when God the Father bathed His Son in all of this brilliance and glory, Peter, James and John saw Jesus and Moses and Elias with Him. At this point a bright cloud overshadowed them and the Father spake out of heaven and said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.” The same words He used when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. The three were then overshadowed by a bright cloud and after that they saw no man save Jesus only.

In life we often find ourselves in situations where we are surrounded by human beings on all sides. Sometimes surrounded even by those who are in high places. While we are to consider what those in places of authority have to say, yet it is my responsibility to come to a place of relationship with God in every situation to where I see no man save Jesus only. In the midst of every situation is a new vision for me of Jesus only in all of His glory.

There was a women one time who had suffered with an issue of blood for twelve long years. When Jesus came across her path He was surrounded on all sides by human beings. This women dropped to her knees and pressed through all the humanity until she was able to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment. She was made whole and restored to her former health.

We can be made whole and restored to our former health spiritually, mentally, emotionally and even physically and financially when we learn to press through all the humanity outwardly and most of all our own humanity inwardly and see no man save Jesus only.
