Speaking in tongues is one of the signs of the New Testament believer. This is one of the marks of a spirit filled Christian and it is also one of the manifestations of the gifts of the spirit as seen in 1 Cor. 12:10. It is an initial evidence of the baptism in the Holy Ghost. We can thus draw a conclusion that speaking in tongues is an identifying mark of God’s family on the earth. Those who are born again and do not speak in tongues are in a place of disadvantage. The intention of God is for you to change position and get your divine communication channel.
When a child of God does not make himself available for speaking in tongues, he is short changing himself by taking a position of disadvantage. This may be due to wrong teaching and doctrine as some churches have concluded that baptism in the Holy Spirit does not include speaking in tongues. These are heretic teachings as no passage in the New Testament Bible speaks of baptism in the Holy Spirit without the evidence of speaking in tongues. This is the first and initial evidence of baptism in the Holy Ghost and you ought to continue in it because the advantage is enormous.
We must remove the stumbling block in the area of speaking in tongues. It is not meant for communication with man; that is, you don’t speak in tongues to men like yourself but in the Spirit you speak mysteries. A mystery is something existing but not known to you. Hence speaking in tongues brings you to deal with things known to God or other men but not known to you yet.
Ability to speak in tongues gives you an advantage that whatever question life is asking you, you can connect to the answers in the spirit. This is the ability to dip into the store or bank of divine knowledge that God possesses. When you find yourself in a place and you don’t know what to do, understand that the answer lies with God and you can connect to it as you speak in tongues. The thing that is confusing you and other experts has a solution with God. You can connect to your help, answers and solutions as you pray in the spirit. This is God’s provision for you to live by the answer and you can start today!
Prayer: Lord, I receive the Holy Spirit baptism into my life today and as I begin to pray in tongues, I connect to the answers, solution and divine revelations of everything you have provided for me in life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
