Good morning people who communicate with God
There is a lot of uncertainty and opinion about speaking in tongues. I feel prompted to write briefly on it over the next couple of days.
I believe that God gave this wonderful gift as a means of communicating with God on a deeper level than our natural minds can take us. I believe tongues is a spirit to spirit connection with God.
1 Corinthians 14:14-15 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my mind.
Have you ever been talking to God about something where words seem to be inadequate? I have and it’s in this area that I believe praying in tongues is fruitful.
1 Corinthians 14:2 For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God. Indeed, no one understands him; he utters mysteries with his spirit.
I have had many times when I am delighting in God or praying about a situation and I start to speak in tongues. I feel my spirit lift. I think one of the reasons is the realm of faith and trust that speaking in a language that we don’t understand requires.
I don’t fully understand it, but I do know it has been such a blessing in my life.
