“And these signs shall follow them that believe, in my name… they shall speak with new tongues.” Mark 16:17
Praying in tongues is a powerful channel for release of divine power to a believer. There is enormous power and anointing in praying or speaking in tongues. This was the hidden power that was prevalent in the early church. It was a practical way of worship and intercession. The dynamics of speaking in tongues removes the veil that covers God’s gift which has been released to us. The obvious benefit of speaking in tongues is that it strengthens believers in times of persecution, peril, confusion, trial, temptation and it also increases discernment.
Praying in tongues takes prayer requests to God in nano-seconds. Request we do not even know of or find hard to say are said when we pray in tongues. “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” (Romans 8:26). Praying in tongues enables believers to bypass satan and his fallen angels when communicating with God.
Every believer has the ability to speak in tongues because the promise of the spirit is for all the children of God. It is not for some believers to have while others won’t have. It’s for all believers. The bible says you shall receive power when the Holy Ghost has come upon you. This is the promise of God. God gives you His Spirit to endue you with power to be His witness to the uttermost parts of the world and to do signs and wonders. Begin to speak in tongues and you break the shackles of darkness on your life. Begin to pray in tongues and you confuse the devil because he doesn’t understand the mysteries you are uttering. If you’ve been saved and baptized, there’s no reason why you should not speak in tongues. Ask the Holy to give you utterance today and speak.
In doing this, don’t forget that giving your Firstfruit is a sign to God that you are ready for His blessings in your life this year.
Isaiah 28:11-12, Hebrews 4:12, Revelations 2:23
I was in church one day when there was a need to buy a new generator for the church. I sowed the five thousand naira I had believing God for financial blessings. Few days later, someone I did not expect gave me one hundred thousand naira. Praise God!
