Acts 2:2 (NIV) ~ Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

Acts 2:2 (NIV) ~ Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

The word “suddenly” is a very powerful one. In total, it is mentioned 45 times in the Bible. Three of the ways the word is used are as follows: first, in Hebrew ‘pitom’ is mentioned 12 times meaning, all at once, in an instant, by surprise, so quickly, unexpectedly. Then in Greek ‘exaiphnes’ is mentioned 5 times, meaning, unexpectedly and lastly, ‘aphno’ is used 3 times meaning, suddenly like a rushing wind.

Oh, for God to breakthrough suddenly in answer to prayer! Oh, for a “suddenly moment” to happen. What a tremendous blessing it would be, if we have been praying for something to happen, when suddenly God brought the answer.

He can heal suddenly.

He can move suddenly.

He can deliver suddenly.

He can bring the breakthrough suddenly.

He can bless you suddenly.

He can provide suddenly.

He can save suddenly.

Suddenly, He can make a way where there seems to be no way, in an instant, so quickly, all at once, by surprise, God can move suddenly. Oh, for more “suddenly moments” from God!

My friend, in our text for today, the disciples were gathered together in one place to pray, when, as the Bible says in Acts 2:2 (NIV), “Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.” Suddenly, everything changed, as the Holy Spirit came as tongues of fire and rested on each of them.

Oh Lord, take us by surprise, bring a revival suddenly, let Your fire fall suddenly and fill our earthen vessels afresh with the Holy Spirit. Oh Lord, move suddenly when we least expect it, take us by surprise Lord, and have your way, do something way beyond our hopes and dreams and move suddenly with something new in our lives.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
