“He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church” 1 Corinthians 14:4.
When you pray in tongues for anything, having an expectation, positions you for better results. What can you expect when you pray in tongues? 1 Cor 14:4 (AMP) says “the one who prays in an unknown tongue edifies himself”. The amplified version adds the synonym “improves” himself; “He who speaks in a [strange] tongue edifies and improves himself, but he who prophesies [interpreting the divine will and purpose and teaching with inspiration] edifies and improves the church and promotes growth [in Christian wisdom, piety, holiness, and happiness]. This means that when you pray in tongues, you can expect to be improved as a member of the Church- Christ’s Body. So now, there’s no limit to how much you can improve. Nothing or no one can set a limitation on you.
Most remarkably, Jude vs 20 (AMP) says “make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher….praying in the Holy Spirit”. This means you can make progress and rise like an edifice as you pray in the Spirit. An edifice by any imagination is an unavoidable structure. You make progress till you can’t be ignored! When you refer to an edifice, you don’t look down for it, you always look up for it. That’s how you become. Your stature in life is improved. Your influence and impact cannot be ignored; regardless of the sphere you are involved. Thanks be to God!
Praying in tongues allows you to communicate at the God level. It is communication that is out of this world. It’s comparing spiritual with spiritual. It is spirit to spirit. It is communication that is beyond the throes and frailties of the earth realm. At this communication level, there are no limitations, only possibilities. You are not communing with man, but with God (1 Cor 14:2). What a privilege! This is fellowship of the God-kind. It is too vital and honorable to be missed. When you pray in tongues, your spirit is engaged. You are sensitive to the sublime signals of the Spirit; you are synchronized with the accuracy of God’s plan, purpose and timing.
Train yourself to always start by praying in tongues instead of praying with your understanding. The spiritual is greater than the physical. Why start with the lesser? And in most cases, the understanding is limited; so if you are faced with a situation you don’t understand, and you are praying in your understanding, that will be quite frustrating. Always pray with the spirit first, and then with your understanding if required, for by then your understanding would have been energized and under the influence of your spirit. This is the order. It works!
When you pray in tongues, stay engaged long enough for the power to rise within you. It may take a while, as you try to keep distractions out, but stay with it. Pray until divinity takes over. You will know when this happens. You will get tremendous results as you take out time to pray in tongues today and always.
