Holy Spirit – A Sound From Heaven.

”And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.” (Acts 2:2)

The Holy Spirit was like a Sound from Heaven when He came upon the disciples at Pentecost. A loud sound may surprise you; a sweet sound may entice you; an unexpected sound may startle you; and familiar sounds may make you feel comfortable. When Christians were praying in the Upper Room, they didn’t know what to expect. Jesus had promised to send the Holy Spirit to them (Acts 1:8).

He came upon them as a loud “sound from Heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind” (2:2). Because He is like a mighty wind, He can do mighty things in your life. The sound filled the whole house, so He can influence your whole world. Those who prayed “were all filled with the Holy Spirit” (v4); you are included in that “all”. The Holy Spirit can enter your life to transform all you do.

Holy Spirit, I need to hear from You. Let me hear the sound of Your presence coming into my life.

The Holy Spirit is a Sound from Heaven. He doesn’t sound anything like what you hear on Earth. A Sound from Heaven is optimistic and filled with hope. It is sweet and good. When you focus your ears on Heaven, you’ll hear eternal things. A Sound from Heaven will make you want to worship, so stop what you’re doing. Be quiet and listen for Heaven’s Sound. The Sound you’ll hear will be God Himself.

Holy Spirit, I need You today. My mind is clear and I’m quiet. I’m waiting for Your voice. Speak, for Your servant will hear and do what You say. Amen.

Key Thought: You will hear a new and different sound from the Holy Spirit.
