A sound from heaven

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven Acts 2:2 (NKJV)

Have you ever been in a room filled with people where many different conversations are taking place? There is a hubbub of voices but no distinct sound. It can be hard to concentrate on what someone might be saying to you as your ears pick up snippets of conversations all around you.

There is a lot of noise in our world. A lot of voices and opinions but there seems little clarity. We are awash with information but are in great need of revelation. We need to hear that distinct sound – the voice of God.

As the early disciples, who were maybe somewhat bewildered, gathered in continuous prayer there was a ‘suddenly moment.’ There was a breaking in of God’s Realm into their realm. There was a sound from heaven that is described as ‘a mighty rushing wind.’ It was not a clear word, but a sound that would usher in transformation (v3-4). A sound that would reverberate and grab people’s attention (v5-12) and a sound that would unfold into a life giving message (v14-39).

Lord, may there be a fresh sound from heaven in this day.
