Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.—Acts 2:3-4 NKJV
God has blessed us with a supernatural ability to pray and experience a move of His Spirit in our personal lives. We have the Spirit of God within us because of the new birth. We can tap into His power by praying in other tongues. The Apostle Paul referred to speaking in tongues as ‘praying in the spirit.’
Jesus said you shall receive power! That power was released when the disciples began to speak. They tapped into God’s power and saw a move of God before their eyes. It is amazing to see the radical transformation of Peter who had just recently denied The Lord three times now preaching with boldness, supernatural power and miracles!
Praying in the spirit is an absolute essential to walking in the fullness of God’s power for your life. I think today it is the most untapped resource for many believers. Many problems believers face can be resolved if they took advantage of this wonderful gift—speaking in tongues or praying in the spirit! Commit to pray in the Spirit and watch life giving rivers from the Spirit of God begin to flow out of your innermost being!
