Several years ago my husband was travelling from one state to another and he had to break the journey in order to cut cost. Along the way he joined one small car for what was considered a small amount of money; little did he know that he had joined a car full of charlatans, swindlers and tricksters. They started talking and talking, and talking about forgotten money in a house somewhere, one of the men claimed his relative couldn’t pay his rent so the landlord had put the house under lock. Now they wanted him (my husband) to bring some money so they could pay the rent and gain access to the thousands locked away in the said house. He will get to share from the money they claimed.
This was when he realized who they were and told them to let him out but they wouldn’t stop the car. He kept on and on about how he was a child of God, how they should stop the car immediately. They ignored him for a while until he switched. He switched to the language of the Holy Ghost; he burst out in tongues, heated tongues, the men got frightened and confused, they couldn’t stand him anymore. They not only let him out but they gave him a refund of ninety percent of the fare he paid, what they had refused to do initially. You too can get the enemy confused when you speak in the language of The Spirit, the Bible says it a sign to the unbelievers , they cannot comprehend it, so they are confused.
When you speak in tongues you are under the influence of The Holy Ghost and you are speaking in His power, it is He that gives you utterance and His presence gets very tangible at that time. You are filled with Him and His power and the enemy cannot stand, hurt or prevail over you. I believe we should engage this and privilege gift more often, the gift of speaking in the language of The Holy Ghost so we can receive strength to overcome the battles of life
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 Corinthians 14:2
