Listening to God

And Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make three tents here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah." He was still speaking when, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him." (Mat 17:4-5, ESV)

This is the picture - While Peter was still speaking; God interrupts him and says to 'listen to His Son.'  That is a picture of most of us.  We have lots of good ideas for God, telling him what we think we should do and what is good for Him and are not ashamed to tell him about them when we should be listening to Him!  When How often do we talk to God or tell Him what should be done when we should be listening to Him?
