Tongue Twisted

We recently taught on the baptism in Holy Spirit to a group of very hungry people who are pursuing more of what God has for them. It was a fun session to teach and it was very encouraging to hear the testimonies of people being given the gift of tongues as well as receiving words of knowledge for the first time. It’s always exciting to see others equipped to do the work for which God has placed them on this earth. And it’s even more exciting to see people step out in faith and partner with what Holy Spirit wants to do. Praying in tongues is not a topic most mainstream churches tackle today but it is an important one for every believer. Our prayer language is such a unique gift because, when compared to the other gifts of the Spirit, it is the one most often used for ourselves.
I love praying in tongues. I love being able to pray in the will of God even though I have no idea what I am saying or what I am praying for. I love it because the Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 14:4 and Jude 1:20 that praying in tongues builds us up. It builds up our spirit, essentially making it stronger so that we will more easily be able to live a life by the spirit instead of by the flesh. I want to share a strategy with you that Holy Spirit once gave to me. Praying in tongues will make you an overcomer and is the best strategy to defeat anything you struggle with. No matter what the struggle is, praying in tongues on a regular basis will strengthen your spirit to the point that the struggle is broken. Praying in tongues is like the ultimate secret weapon against the enemy’s tactics. When our spirit is strong, it is able to flex its muscles against anything that comes against us.
Praying in tongues is a powerful gift given to us by Holy Spirit that helps us in more ways than we probably know. If you have not yet received the gift of speaking in tongues, take a moment right now and ask Holy Spirit to give it to you. He loves to give away gifts and doesn’t hold back any good thing from us. And if you already have the gift, I want to encourage you to use it more often. Pray in tongues for at least an hour throughout each day and you will start to see a difference in your walk with God. It will take you to a whole new level!
