How To Stir Up Your Faith For Your Restoration
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, (Jude 20).
Last week, we saw that we need faith to receive our total restoration. If faith is that important, then you should learn and practice how to build our faith. One way is praying in the Spirit. Pray and praise God in the Spirit (1 Cor. 14: 14 – 15). Read the word of God out loud and declare the word of God in the language of men, then pray again in the Spirit and praise God in the Spirit, for you do not know what to pray and how to pray effectively (Rom 8: 27 – 28).
When you pray in the Spirit, you are talking to God and not to man (1 Cor. 14: 2). You have by-passed the earthly and religious protocols. You are communicating in the language of the angels, which is also the language of God (1 Cor. 13: 1). God hears all languages of man because He created them for man and multiplied them to confuse the evil hearted men who were building the tower of Babel against God (Genesis 11: 7 – 8). But the true language of God is spiritual tongues. During creation, when God commanded, “Let there be light and there was light”, which language did He speak? There was no language of man then – no Hebrew language, nor English, French, Chinese, Arabic, Aramaic languages, etc. Which language did God speak then? It was the language of the Spirit, which we now speak and call speaking in tongues.
When we speak in tongues the enemies are confused, confounded, disarmed and put in total disarray. The enemies understand the languages of men because they were created for the men who were doing Satan’s job of building the tower of Babel (as seen in Gen. 11: 1 – 18).
Yield yourself to the Holy Spirit so that He can give you the language of the Spirit to pray effectively. Do you not see that when you are in a meeting where more people are praying in tongues, the Spirit of God will move freely and mightily; people will be empowered, the evil spirit in some people will manifest and be cast out easily and there will be great miracles of signs and wonders and joy released? Therefore, pray in tongues always.
Praying in the Spirit also builds your faith to the best level of the faith that you have ever attained; that level of faith is called your most holy faith (Jude 20). You can even supersede that level of faith if you endure and continue to pray in the Spirit (- the spiritual tongue). Therefore, pray more in the Spirit and pray also the word of God in the language of man best known to you (Ephesians 6: 17 – 18).
Praying in tongues increases your perseverance in prayer. Without praying in tongues, you cannot persevere long in prayer. You will easily be tired and give up. This is the reason many believers cannot wait long in God’s presence: they have no more things to say in the language of men, when there is so much to still say in the language of the Spirit which they know not.
Why not ask God right now to give you the language of the Spirit so you can pray in tongues and more sensibly in the Spirit of God. Praying in the Spirit is Spirit-led prayer. The more you pray in the Spirit, the more the Holy Spirit will bring more of the written word to your spirit and cause you to declare them in the language of men.
As you are praying and declaring the word or God, you are taking up the sword of the Spirit and you are cutting down resistance, blockers and the enemies. Therefore, pray in tongues and declare the word of God also that the Holy Spirit brings to your heart in that moment. As you are declaring the word of God, you are calling the things that be not as though they were (Romans 4: 17). You are declaring life; you are giving life to the things you speak to; you are forming your new realities based on the word of God and you are bringing into existence in the natural the heavenly realities. Glory to God!
Now praise God as you will and get to the business of praying as you have been instructed by the Holy Spirit through this teaching. Thank You Lord.
POINT OF ACTION FOR DEVOTION
- Read and meditate on Romans 8: 26 – 27. Then, pray in tongues for 10 minutes
- Read and meditate on Joel 2: 23 – 29. Then, pray again in the tongues for 10 minutes. (Try this, you will see how useful it is in building your faith). God bless you and grant you a mighty outpouring of His Spirit for the restoration of all things for you, in Jesus’ name.
