Scripture of the Day:
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.”
Don’t Limit God with Your Prayers
Some people will say that they “pray in other tongues.” I know what they mean, I sometimes say the same thing. But that does not mean that all speaking in tongues IS prayer!
Now, I have to explain that, right? Praise God!
It is true, that when we pray in tongues in our own private prayer life, we are praying directly to God. That is true. But some people want to leave it right there. They limit what God can do through them by not allowing the Holy Spirit to use speaking in divers tongues to minister to OTHERS through THEM!
For example, speaking in divers tongues is a means, as we have already shared in other sessions, where the Holy Spirit can speak THROUGH YOU, through another believer, in an unknown tongue to you, but it is a KNOWN tongue to the hearer. I gave a couple of examples of that in earlier sessions.
Another example was a service a minister I know of told about this happening. He said there was a young Jewish boy who came to their service one night. He was in the Air Force and only had one friend and that was a young man who wanted to invite the Jewish boy to the service, but told him he did not want to offend him. He was Jewish and did not believe Jesus really was the Messiah. But he said, “You’re my only friend, I’ll go with you.”
As the service got going, the pastor started to pray in tongues. There was usually someone who would stand up to interpret, but this night, nobody stood up to give the interpretation. After a minute or so, the pastor continued with the service.
Afterwards, as the pastor was greeting people as they were leaving, the Jewish boy shook hands with the Pastor and asked him how he knew he was Jewish?
The Pastor responded he did not know he was Jewish and then asked, “Why did you ask me that?”
The Jewish boy said the pastor had spoken directly to him, in perfect Hebrew, and had even spoken the Jewish pronunciation of his name, including his middle name.
The pastor was shocked! So was this boys friend!
The pastor asked him what else had been said…
The boy responded with, “You told me that Jesus was the true Messiah and that I was to believe in Him.”
He then told the pastor that he had to go and think about this more…
The next Sunday, that Jewish boy and his friend came back to church and the Jewish boy received Jesus as his Savior! Praise GOD! Amen!
Do not limit what God can do when He wants to use YOU! If you are unwilling to yield yourself to the Holy Spirit and speak in other tongues, even in private, let alone in public, you limit God!
Don’t LIMIT GOD with your prayers! Amen!
Don’t LIMIT GOD by not being willing to allow HIM to use YOU with supernatural prayer in divers tongues.
I want to pray for you right now. I want to pray that you will be willing to allow God to USE YOU by speaking in unknown tongues. Praise God!
