Have you ever been in the middle of a difficult time, and you were agonizing over what to do, how to think, and you prayed “God, I wish you would just break out of the heavens and tell me what to do!”
If you’ve ever thought something like that, you are not alone. Most of us have thought that in a moment of frustration. Or we wish we could talk with God all the time.
In Psalm 4, the writer of the psalm, Israel’s famous King David boldly says “Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God!” I read that and I think, “Yikes, David, you better watch your mouth.” Maybe he is not demanding. Maybe he is desperate. And we can identify with that. Often we are desperate to hear from God.
You fill in the blank. What life situation would love God to talk with you about? Raising kids? What to do about the future? A friendship? A job? An expenditure?
There are so many times when we wish we knew what God’s will for us is. And we can, with David, cry out “Just tell me what you want me to do, God! Answer me!” Will he? Does God still speak? If so, how?
Sometimes we hear from him when we least expect it.
As we continue our series in Luke, we come to Luke 9:28-36, and through an unexpected and freaky situation, some disciples of Jesus are about to have an experience of a lifetime. One they would never forget. One they would write about years later, as if it happened the day before. They’re going to hear the voice of God. But what will he say to them?
