Have you ever been so emotional, you just don’t have words? You can be overcome with grief or joy and be at a loss for what to say. Maybe you know exactly what you want to say, but don’t know how to verbally communicate it. That being lost in translation can happen between our brain and our spirit. That’s why the Holy Spirit gave us another language to use instead.
Praying in tongues is the perfect thing to do when you feel stirred up but don’t know exactly what you want God to do about it. Or maybe you’re in crises mode and you need to go straight to the throne for help. Or maybe you want to praise God with the language of heaven because you don’t have enough words of your own.
Praying in tongues is our direct link to the Holy Spirit, talking to Him spirit to Spirit. No middleman. No affected lingo. Our spirit knows how to talk to Him and say exactly what our gut wants to be said. Sometimes the Holy Spirit Himself will intercede for us. Now that’s awesome!
I’m not talking about praying in public when you need someone to interpret. I’m talking about personal prayer. Just you and God, speaking the things that need to be said in a way you don’t understand but He does. If you don’t that this amazing gift, ask God for it now.
