SPEAKING IN TONGUES (1)
1 Corinthians 14:2-15, Isaiah 28:11-12, John 16:15
Let me show you some things about speaking in tongues. There is more to speaking in tongues than just warming our spiritual engines in the morning. When you spend time praying in the Spirit, it builds up your spirit man and gives you rest. This rest is the indwelling presence of the Spirit of God and all that He brings.
All the blessings of the kingdom of God are in His possession. You can’t take it yourself, He has to show you. The things of the Father belonging to Jesus have been put in the custody of the Holy Spirit to be revealed in due season to the people of God. Every believer ought then to find out what the Bible says about speaking in tongues in order to enjoy and live an effective Christian life.
A lot of Christians have no rest and the Bible does not call sleep rest. Biblical rest is energizing yourself with life by the power of the Holy Spirit. The open door into all these blessings of the kingdom of God which are spiritual, is speaking in tongues. Don’t belittle it. You may cram the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, but there is refreshing only when you pray in tongues. The seasons of refreshing that God talks about is on your inside and as you spend time praying in tongues, something bursts out of you. You can thus keep having seasons of refreshing as you spend time praying in tongues in your closet. When you are so tired and weary, just release yourself to speaking in tongues.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the gift of the Holy Ghost. I receive upon myself again, a dose of refreshing as I pray now in the Holy Ghost.
