Here we are – Part III and it’s the absolute best way to hear from the Lord – speaking in tongues! Why? Because when you pray in tongues you’re praying the hidden mysteries of God! How awesome is that!
1 Corinthians 14:2 (KJV) 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.
When you’re facing a dilemma and just don’t know what to do, pray in tongues because you’re praying the perfect answer. Then the Lord will speak to you in your spirit and you’ll know what to do. Let me give an example.
When I’m praying for someone with an infirmity, sickness, disease, or any other problem, I don’t know all that I need to know about the situation but God does. Then I pray in tongues and let the Holy Spirit speak to my spirit to give me the answer and show me what to do. Remember, praying in tongues is praying the perfect answer.
So how do we do this? First of all, you must be born-again, having accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior. [Rom. 10:9-10] Then you simply ask your Heavenly Father to fill you – baptize – with His Spirit in the Name of Jesus. It’s His will for you, so you don’t have to beg. You simply ask and receive.
Luke 11:13 (KJV) 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
Acts 2:1-4 (KJV)
Then stop praying in English, open your mouth, and let your new heavenly language come forth from your belly not your head. You’re going to have to use your voice because you’re the one speaking even though the Holy Spirit is helping you. It’s your voice, your tongue, your mouth,
Sometimes praying with another Christian who’s baptized with the Holy Spirit and speaks in tongues will help you get started.
You can also call Andrew Wommack’s prayer line [719-635-1111] and they’ll pray with you to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Brothers and sisters, we need all the power and enablement available to us as we wrestle against the enemy’s demonic influence arrayed against us. [Eph. 6:12] We need to be quick to hear and obey God’s direction at all times.
So there you have it in capsule form, learning to hear the voice of the Lord and following His leading and guidance through your spirit, the Holy Spirit, the peace of God, and praying in tongues.
We need to practice our faith when things are good because trying to build a boat in the middle of a flood won’t work. Don’t wait for a crisis before you practice hearing from God. Do it now – everyday, all day long and become the giant man/woman of faith and power God has called you to be.
