Relate To God From Your Spirit

Relate To God From

 Your Spirit


What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also

(1 Corinthians 14:15).

 


       God is a Spirit and you can only relate with Him from your spirit. Sometimes when we tell people to relate to God from their spirit they don’t seem to know what to do. They wonder whether to raise their hands, leap and shout, or just stay still. The Bible says they that worship God, must worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23). The Apostle Paul gives us an idea of how to relate to the Lord from your spirit when he said in 1 Corinthians 14:14, “For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.” 


       When you pray in tongues, it’s your spirit that’s praying; you’re communing with the Lord from your spirit; your inner man is activated to hear and receive from God. Notice what we read in our opening verse: “What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also.” He didn’t say “I will pray with the understanding, and I will pray with the spirit also.” Praying with the spirit takes the precedence. 


       The Bible says “But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost” (Jude 1:20). Praying with the spirit, or praying by the power of the Holy Spirit is more important than all the most intelligent words you could ever utter to God in your understanding. That’s why it’s important that you pray earnestly with the spirit, in other tongues, all the time. Paul said, “I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all” (1Corinthians 14:18). Little wonder therefore that he recorded such phenomenal successes and victories in his personal life and in ministry to others.


Prayer


Dear Father,

I’m strengthened by the Spirit through the Word today as I speak in other tongues; I’m built up from within like an edifice, charged with divine fire-power! My spirit is open to receive from you, as you lead me to know and walk in your perfect will,

in Jesus’ Name.
