But while Peter was still speaking, a radiant cloud composed of light spread over them, enveloping them all. And God’s voice suddenly spoke from the cloud, saying, “This is my dearly loved Son, the constant focus of my delight. Listen to him!” Matthew 17:5 TPT
I was hearing the word ‘suddenly’ in my spirit and so I began putting the word into my bible application to see what would come up. This verse spoke to me, not for the word suddenly, but for the very first part, “But while Peter was still speaking.” I heard the Lord say that even while we’re still speaking, we will see things shift and change and hear His resounding voice declare to the world, “This is my dearly loved son/daughter, the constant focus of my delight. Listen to them!”
I’m not trying to add or take away from the Word, but I’m personalizing it because we need to remember who’s our daddy! We need to remember that He delights in our worship, in our praise and that Jesus was the firstborn of many brothers and sisters
Can you even imagine hearing the booming voice of God? Perhaps if you tune in you will because He’s always speaking. His Word is alive, active, powerful and always hits it’s mark. So while you’re speaking, so is God. He’s telling you of His love for you and that He’s constantly watching, elbowing the angels, “Did you see that? Did you see her faith? I’m so pleased!”
Father, I feel Your love as You breathe on my heart like a flame and it bursts into a fiery passion. I hear Your declaration over me every time I open the written word and speak it aloud. Oh Your voice. It sound like mine but with so much more power. Perhaps some day I will understand the power that works in me and my voice will be as booming as Yours. It’s for Your glory, Amen!
