PRAYER FINE-TUNES YOUR SPIRIT
“The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly” (Proverbs 20:27)
God leads and guides you through your spirit, not through your mind, and that’s why the Bible calls your spirit ‘the candle of the Lord.’ Your spirit functions like an antenna, scanning the spirit realm to pick the signals of the Spirit of God.
The Holy Spirit is always speaking, but sometimes you may not be alert spiritually as you should to hear what He is saying. This is why praying in tongues is so important: it makes your spirit more sensitive to God.
Praying in tongues fine-tunes your spirit, much the same way you fine tune your television or radio set to get perfect signals. Spiritual signals are always being released from the realm of the Spirit, but your spiritual antenna has to be raised and tuned to receive those divine words of blessing, instruction, direction and counsel coming forth from the throne of heaven.
When you’re in tune with the Spirit you won’t live a life of trial-and-error, or make costly mistakes, for you’ll be guided by the spirit.
