KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 14:2 ” For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.”
We continue our study on the Pauline revelations; this time we are considering, speaking in tongues as a means of touching the real issues that we need to pray on.
One does not make a mistake when praying in tongues. The scripture said “For if I pray in an unknown tongue my spirit prayeth, but understanding is unfruitful” (1st Corinthians 14:14). He means that when praying in tongues it is his recreated spirit within him that prays. His mental faculties do not play a part. Your recreated spirit is one with the Holy Spirit (1st Corinthians 6:17). The Holy Spirit cannot make a mistake, He prays and intercedes on every need or thing that you have to tackle.
Our key scripture presents it this way “For he that speaks in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God, for no man understands him, howbeit in the spirit he speaks mysteries” 1st Corinthians 14:2. Man is limited in many things. Even issues concerning our present moments are unknown to us. As you sit now, can you tell the biochemical conditions of your body? Do you know what somebody is planning for you, whether good or bad? What about the future. Dear one life is spiritual and you need to approach it from the spiritual point as well.
A man woke up at the early hours of the morning, and had a strong urge to pray. He prayed in tongues till morning. He left for work with the wife. As he got to work he had a call that his water tank full of water had fallen on his roof and entered his bedroom. It fell directly on the bed .What would have happened if it had fallen when they were sleeping? I believe his prayers dealt with that.
I have countless testimonies of various deliverance resulting out of others praying in tongues.
Please, don’t forbid to pray in tongues. It is a great privilege to do so. You can’t make mistakes praying in an unknown tongue.
Thank you heavenly father, for the blessing of praying in tongues. I always pray rightly and get my results as I pray in tongues.
Romans 8:26 ” Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit himself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
1 Corinthians 14: 39
“Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues”.
