Scripture For Today:
“But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places to pray.”
Interpreting Our Praying in Tongues
We have been studying about praying in the Spirit. Today, I want to briefly discuss our interpreting while praying in tongues.
First Corinthians 14 tells us something believers are to pray for. Believers are to pray to be able to interpret their own private prayers in tongues. Doing so will greatly enhance your prayer life.
“Wherefore, let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue PRAY THAT HE MAY INTERPRET.”
Paul is not talking here about interpreting messages in tongues in a public setting. That is a different operation of the gift altogether. Paul is talking about the believer being able to interpret their own prayers that are being prayed in other tongues so they will know what it is they prayed for.
This is an area the even folks who have been filled with the Spirit for many years have missed. They lose many valuable truths God would desire to show them because He promised believers He would show us things to come, right? That’s in John 16:13.
We are told in the Word that when we pray in tongues, we are to pray that we might also interpret. Have you ever done that? If you haven’t yet experienced this, you are missing out on a valuable benefit that God desires you to have through the Holy Spirit.
Some people think, “Well, brother Bob, the person would just be adding what they wanted to believe then. They wouldn’t really know if that is what God was saying or not.”
My answer, YOUR RIGHT!
Jesus always said, “Be it unto you according to your Faith.”
So, if you believe tongues is foolishness – so be it unto you according to your Faith! Fool.
But, if you believe God hears your prayers and since He hears your prayers you have the petitions you desire of Him… allow the Holy Spirit to do HIS WORK in HELPING YOU TO PRAY.
That’s what this series of teachings has been about these past couple of weeks, right?
