Open Heaven 18 December 2022 MESSAGE:
SCRIPTURE: Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Romans 8:26
There is one great and powerful gift that God has given to the New Testament Church; unfortunately, many take it for granted. That gift is the Holy Spirit and especially, speaking in tongues. The Bible says that when you speak in tongues, it is the Holy Spirit praying for you.
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered. – (Romans 8:26)
The Holy Spirit Himself is praying for you. You can be sure that He will pray the right prayers and they will all be answered because He is the Spirit of God Himself who will bring the answers to you. The gift of the Holy Spirit is such a powerful one!
Imagine that you need a job in a big company and the owner sends his only son to help you. The son meets you, becomes your friend, then introduces you to another relative who helps you to write the application letter. Also, the only people who will sit at the panel where your application for this job is to be reviewed are the owner of the company, his son and this relative of theirs. I am sure you know already that you would get the job.
God is the owner of this big company and He is the one who sent Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son who becomes your friend when you get born again. The Holy Spirit is the family member the Son introduces to you and even places inside you. Speaking in tongues is the Holy Spirit writing your request to God for you. You can now see why you should speak in tongues more often.
If you speak in tongues for at least one hour every day, your life will be smoother than if you only speak in tongues once in a while. There is a lot happening in the spirit realm that you don’t know. The Holy Spirit however, knows all things and will say the right prayers through you when you speak in tongues. The Holy Spirit in you helps you pray in tongues to navigate around dangers and optimize opportunities in your future that you don’t know about yet. Speaking in tongues is a powerful gift; use it.
