I encourage YOU to SEEK GOD to receive the gift of speaking in tongues! When I was younger, I just always thought…people were crazy speaking in gibberish. ;-) So, I wanted no parts of it. Took awhile but Thank GOD I grew up and realize the importance of speaking in tongues. When I decided to really take my walk seriously in 2011; I took a class at my church at the time and I received the gift of speaking in tongues. It still felt weird at first. I sounded like a baby trying to speak…but the more I allowed God to have His way…the more it came and now it’s much stronger.
Speaking in the Spirit enables us to live in the Spirit, walk in the Spirit, be led by the Spirit, have the Fruit of the Spirit, it manifests the Gifts of the Spirit and allows us to have Spirit to Spirit communication with God.
For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God. Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 14:2
Times when I have no idea what to pray for or just having a bad day. I just PRAY in the spirit.
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. Romans 8:26-27
So, if you do not know how to speak in tongues. I encourage you to receive this gift TODAY!
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. John 14:16-17
Prayer: Lord, I humbly come before you to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit in me to pray in another language. Remove any and all things that is preventing me from receiving this gift. So, that I may pray in the tongues; as well as give you PRAISE in tongues now and forever more. In Jesus name, AMEN
Now try speaking in tongues…just try saying something and keep trying and trying…the more you do it..the better you will become. God is with YOU!
