Speaking in tongues also serves as a medium for your spirit man to express itself to God.
1 Cor. 14:14, “… For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth…”
Allowing your spirit to speak in tongues, to come out boldly, is giving expression to your spirit. When you worship God, He wants you to worship Him from your spirit. When you dance before God, you can either dance in the flesh or dance in the spirit. The dance in the spirit is what brings blessing. Sometimes, what people do in churches is to dance in the flesh, shaking their bodily parts at praise songs for people to see and admire; that is spreading immorality. But God wants us to get the real thing. As we get real with the Holy Spirit, our spirit expresses itself.
When your spirit is not feeling satisfied about anything, stop and probe it prayerfully. Do not be in a hurry when your spirit is unsatisfied, especially when you have the impression that there is still something undealt with. You will be cheating your spirit and forming a bad habit of not obeying the dealings of God in your spirit. The day that some trouble is going to happen, and your spirit tries to warn you, you will not obey it because you started long ago to form the habit of not listening to your spirit; of not allowing your spirit to express itself.
The strongest Christians are not the most muscular Christians; the strongest Christians are the ones that allow their spirit to express itself. They are free to just burst out in the spirit, and they can get into any atmosphere and take charge of that atmosphere. Stop the habit of restraining your spirit from expressing itself so that the devil would not cower and dominate you in any atmosphere you find yourself. There are revelations in your spirit that can deal with the next 50 years of your life but which you would not know until you allow your spirit to express it by praying it out. Just let your spirit go when you pray in tongues, and when you begin to pick what your spirit wants to do, obey it and do it.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the boldness to express my spirit and carry out Your instructions through my spirit.
