What is so interesting about the Holy Spirit is that He teaches us everything we can’t see in the natural. He shows us mysteries and divine secrets about the Lord and His ways. The Holy Ghost is our first and foremost Teacher. There is a saying, ‘ When the pupil is ready, the teacher will appear.’ Are you ready for more of the Holy Spirit to lead and guide your life today?
When you allow the Him to pray through you, He builds you up on the inside. This is called the edification process, like 1 Corinthians 14:4 describes: “ He that speaks in an unknown tongue edifies himself but he that prophesies edifies the church.”
This word “edification” comes from the word “edifice.” An edifice is a massive magnificent building. Not just a townhouse but a superstructure like the Empire State building. When you pray in tongues, you are actually creating a superstructure, a divine operation on the inside of your spirit to house the anointing of God. You are also praying yourself into your divine calling. And what is so great about tongues is that your spirit is communicating directly with the Lord, and the enemy cannot understand what you say. It is your private prayer language to Him .
Your Heavenly Father is continually in touch with the life of every believer. His ways are so much higher than our ways, it is above human thinking on how He does it, but He does. When you pray in the Spirit, you immediately enter into divine communication with God Himself. The Lord picks up the telephone on the other end, and says, ‘I know that is you, and I know what you want. And because the wisdom of the Holy Spirit is praying through you, know that the answer is on its way for you, and there is nothing the devil can do about it.’
That is why the enemy hates praying in tongues and does everything he can to distract you from doing it. He has absolutely not idea what you are saying to God. It makes him nervous. He has no jurisdiction when the Holy Spirit creates that supernatural language inside of you. Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who has come and made His abode on the inside of you. Your flesh is a type of the outer court, your soul is the inner court. But your born again, recreated spirit is a type of the Holy of Holies – and nobody except your High Priest is allowed inside there.
So make a decision to spend more time praying in the spirit. John Osteen, Pastor Joel Osteen’s Dad, used to say if Christians would just spend ten minutes a day praying in tongues, it would change their lives. Get ready for a life altering change!!
