To “edify” means to “build up” or to “raise up”, and this edification is a spiritual edification. You are building up your spirit and charging yourself like a battery when you speak in tongues.
There are two ways by which you can run a battery down:
1. Not using it
2. Overusing it without recharging
Many Christians are running on dry battery, battery that is running down and wearing out. Throughout the week, Monday to Friday, you work from morning till night without making time out to pray to refresh your spirit so, you become worn out. And the devil likes that to happen so that when he comes calling, you will not be in shape to fight.
It’s a dangerous excuse to say you’re too busy to pray because you don’t need to take a break from any physical activity you’re doing to pray in the spirit. While you are working, you can still be praying in tongues so that your spirit is constantly being charged like the alternator in a car; with the battery being charged constantly even while the car is running.
As a child of God, God has given you a clue. While you are working through the day, be praying in tongues. You do not have to speak aloud; you can pray in tongues under your breathe and get the same result in the spirit as if you are praying aloud.
PRAYER: Father, I reject every attack of the devil to wear me out, I will stay refreshed, edified, and renewed as I constantly pray in the spirit. Amen
