Good morning to you my lovely partners in the Kingdom of God’s agenda! Welcome again to the beginning of a year that will blow your mind for good if you harken and obey the word of Jehovah. As we have fasted and prayed for this year in the first 12 days of December 2016, I’m rest assured that all will be well in Jesus mighty name. Remember to go back to those notes and messages you received during the fasting & prayer period. It’s our year of WALKING WITH GOD!
Now what do I hear the spirit saying to us today?
Topic: The Power of Tongues
Prayer: Oh lord, breathe upon these words and let it become RHEMA unto us in Jesus mighty name.
Let’s get started!
Tongues as explained by the bible is an unknown language of the spirit that is spoken when one is baptised by the Holy Spirit.
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”
Acts 2:1-4 NIV
Please note in the scripture above, ‘All of them were FILLED with the HOLY SPIRIT and then BEGAN to speak in other tongues. Hence, we can conclude that we cannot speak in tongues without the in-filling of the Holy Spirit.
Prayer point- Holy Spirit, fill me up like never before 🙏
Why are we treating this topic today and why should we place any importance on the ability to speak in tongues?
I’m glad you asked!
We are treating this topic today because I feel led by the Holy Spirit to tell us to pray in tongues MORE.
Do you know that your words sometimes have limitations to actually pray the right prayers and the mind of God concerning any matter?
In other words, when we pray in tongues
-We pray the will of God concerning that situation.
-We can never pray amiss when we pray in tongues
-we implore the Holy Spirit to address a certain situation we know nothing about.
-Praying in tongues can literally save our lives because there are so many unknown battles we need to fight.
“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 Godʼs people in accordance with the will of God.”
Romans 8:26-27 NIV
Halleluyah to the lamb of God. What can we do without the Holy Spirit.
There is so much power in praying in Unknown tongues. Very few Christians actually have a revelation in this area. This year 2017, I enjoin everyone of us to pray more in tongues than ever before.
This is very very important because we have no idea what this year will bring but when we pray in the spirit everything will be in control.
This year we’ll start by chatting our course through groanings in the spirit. Pray in the spirit about every area of your life and commit it to God.
“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;”
Mark 16:17 KJV
Do you know that whatever challenges this year throws at you, please choose the weapon of praying in Unknown tongues. For the bible says our weapons of warfare are not CARNAL but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. 2Cor 10:4
Please note ‘mighty through God’ – this weapon is so mighty because when you pray in tongues, you’re inviting the spirit of the living God to begin to intercede for you, to come and take over, to come and abide in you.
There are so many times, we face life circumstances and we do not understand why or what to make of the situation, but when we pray in tongues we begin to receive heavens mandate on that matter.
So how do we start speaking in tongues?
We need to constantly stir up our spirit with praise and worship so that we can flow in praying in Unknown tongues.
“So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding.”
1 Corinthians 14:15 NIV
If you’re not yet baptised by the Holy Spirit through the evidence of speaking in tongues, it’s time to start yearning for it. Ask the Holy Spirit to baptise you afresh.
I pray that today the kind of tongues of fire that came upon them on the day of Pentecost will rest on you today in Jesus mighty name.
Today’s exhortation is not going to be long because we just have to do it! For the most part of today and in this 2017, pray in tongues for your family, career, God-given purpose etc and watch how things will begin to happen for your good.
“O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen on your walls; they will pray day and night, continually. Take no rest, all you who pray to the LORD.”
Isaiah 62:6 NLT
