A TONGUE FOR EACH ONE
(Speaking In Other Tongues Is For Everyone)
TO THE BIBLE
Acts 2:1-4 CEV
“On the day of Pentecost all the Lord’s followers were together in one place. Suddenly there was a noise from heaven like the sound of a mighty wind! It filled the house where they were meeting. Then they saw what looked like fiery tongues moving in all directions, and a tongue came and settled on each person there. The Holy Spirit took control of everyone, and they began speaking whatever languages the Spirit let them speak.”
“Speaking in other tongues…Is it for everyone?” “Is it compulsory that I do it?” These questions and many others come from those who don’t speak in tongues. Any Christian who speaks in tongues and understands the great blessings that come from doing so doesn’t ask such questions.
To speak in tongues is to communicate in a spiritual language inspired by the Holy Spirit. As we saw in our theme scripture, “…the Spirit gave them utterance.” The Message translation says, “And they started speaking in a number of different languages as the Spirit prompted them.”
There are those who believe that speaking in tongues is only for a select group of believers, or for high-ranking ministers of God. Not at all! Every Christian, young and old, male and female should regularly speak in tongues. Some other people think that they can only pray in tongues when they reach a spiritual high. Well, that happens simply because they haven’t learnt how to be constantly filled with the Spirit.
When you receive the Holy Spirit and train yourself to always be filled with His divine presence, you’ll have the utterance to speak in tongues whenever and wherever. It will be a natural occurrence in your life on a regular basis.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
1 Corinthians 14:2
For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.
I’m constantly filled with the Holy Spirit, and as I speak in other tongues, I’m giving instructions to angels and appropriating the blessings of God in my life. I’m building up my spirit and ordering my steps along the paths of excellence, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
