BLESSEDNESS OF SPEAKING AND PRAYING IN TONGUES
Romans 8:26-28; 1 Corinthians 2:9-12
By Rev. Olusola & Rev. Oyenike Areogun
The Bible makes it very plain that speaking in tongues is peculiarly a New Testament experience. It is also an experience peculiar to only those who are born again. That is to say that only born-again people can speak in tongues. This experience is also peculiar to the arrival of the Holy Ghost into the heart of a born-again person in full measure.
What this means is that no one can speak in tongues without a full baptism of the Holy Ghost. Only those born-again people who receive the baptism in the Holy Ghost will be able to speak in tongues.
Let me share some of the blessings of speaking in tongues.
a) Your prayers are a mystery to Satan. So, he can’t hinder them. Please compare Daniel 10:10-13 with 1 Corinthians 14:2.
b) It opens your spirit to the realities of the spirit realm. This is so since praying in tongues is your spirit praying – 1 Cor. 14:14-15
c) It builds up your spirit for exploits – 1 Cor. 14:2; Jude 20
d) It brings calm and quiet to your mind – Phi. 4:6-7.
e) You are able to pray for things you never knew before or thought of – 1 Cor. 14:1-2.
f) It helps you to pray longer and better and reduces your chances of selfishness in prayer – 1 Cor. 14:21.
g) While praying in tongues, the Holy Ghost has more access to your spirit and understanding and as such can bring directions and guidance to your mind.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive my heart flooded with light to grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life that You have made available to me through praying in tongues. Amen!
