Thoughts During My Morning “Speaking In Tongues” Routine

I tend to analyze things as I do them. If I sense something is amiss, I want to be certain that I’m on the right side of things. Most certainly this is the case with anything involving my connection to God.

Speaking in tongues has provided discernible benefits to me. Yet there were times when some questionable experiences arose: I would notice “chaotic” activity in the environment, things that would suggest demonic influence. For a time I avoided tongues-speaking until I could gain sufficient understanding of what this experience actually was: Godly or ungodly, a pure manifestation of the Holy Spirit or an opening of one’s spirit to both good and evil influences.

 After some time of abandoning tongues I noticed a steady decline of my spiritual “vigor,” my state of faith in addressing the worlds affairs and problems. It became clear to me that speaking in tongues was an essential part of a strong faith life for the Believer. 

It all came down to “discerning the spirits:” (1 Corinthians 12:10, 1 John 4:1). I noted that there’s an inclination for the flesh to rise up whenever we experience an increase in strength, either physically or spiritually. As we are freed from burdens that were weighing-down our spirit and our thoughts, our flesh may feel emboldened to take matters into its own hands and forsake dependency on God.

So I’ve assembled notes from time to time in an effort to clarify the ways in which praying in tongues has proven to be most beneficial and within God’s economy.

First, take it by faith that the Lord, being good, will not hand you a snake if you ask for a fish (Luke 11:11).

Seek God first, then seek tongues.

Open up your spirit, visualizing the Holy Spirit, and let your spirit’s language flow. Visualize positive scenes, colors, love-thoughts toward any enemies and battles that await the day ahead. Why “love-thoughts”? Because this will orient you to God’s state of mind. That way, the devil won’t be able to tempt you into thinking thoughts of rage and revenge toward those past enemies that he parades across your mind’s eye.

We have negative thoughts throughout the day, and it is no different when we are speaking in tongues. When we’re getting that renewal of power while speaking in the spirit, the flesh will be tempted to use this new energy to attack those who pose threats toward us in the natural. BUT: “we wrestle not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers” in the spiritual realm. We must “spot” those intrusions when we’re praying and cast them down in the name of Jesus.

Then RELEASE them.

Repent – then MOVE ON. We’re given a time to exercise our Anointing, and we aren’t allowed to waste it on feeling “unworthy”. Once we’ve repented, that matter is done. Now you must continue recharging your spirit with this vital energy from God. (He wouldn’t have given it to us unless we needed it, after all.)
