STAY “FIT” IN THE SPIRIT
(Get In On The Exciting Benefits Of Prayer)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
1 Thessalonians 5:17 MSG “Pray all the time”
◀️ LET’S TALK
In the same way a gymnast keeps herself fit and trained, physically and emotionally, for the Olympic games she’s to participate in, we ought to keep our spirits spiritually trained, through praying in the spirit, for everyday living. You see, one of the beautiful things the Holy Spirit has done in our lives as God’s children is to give us the ability to speak in other tongues. And when you understand the importance and higher purposes of prayer, you’ll always be willing and excited to pray, especially in other tongues.
When we speak in tongues, the utterance, the words we speak, aren’t man-made but from the Lord. Moreover, we aren’t speaking to men but to God: “For one who speaks in an [unknown] tongue speaks not to men but to God, for no one understands or catches his meaning, because in the [Holy] Spirit he utters secret truths and hidden things [not obvious to the understanding]” (1 Corinthians 14:2 AMPC). Did you see that?
When you pray in tongues, you’re in fellowship with the Father; you’re communicating with Him through the Spirit in a heavenly language. What a blessing that is! Also, praying in tongues helps to stir up the power of God resident in your spirit. Though that power came into your life when you received the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8), you’ve got to keep it active and in use for His glory. Praying in tongues will keep you more “fit” spiritually, and responsive to the guidance and promptings of the Spirit.
The more time you spend in fellowship with the Lord, praying in the Holy Ghost, the more His character and personality are revealed in, and manifested through you. Some are only compelled to pray when they face crises in life, and that’s not right. We’re called into fellowship with our heavenly Father; that’s what prayer, and praying, is primarily for: fellowship!

Father, your glory, greatness, and majesty are beyond description. Thank you for your presence in my life, and your Word that builds and transforms me in ever-increasing glory. Thank you for the privilege of speaking in other tongues and to fellowship with you in such deep intimacy, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
