Infilling Of The Holy Spirit

Luke 11:11-13; John 14:25-26; 16:13-15; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 8:12-19; 10:44-48; 19:1-7; Romans 8:26-28; I Corinthians 14:2, 4, 14; Ephesians 6:18; Jude 20

1. When the hands were placed on you, you were filled with the Holy Spirit. The ability to speak in new tongues for your personal prayer use comes with being filled with the Holy Spirit.

2. As you continue to speak, God will continue to give you words to say. Trust God and continue to speak. (Acts 2:4)

3. You will not know the words to say because your spirit, by the Holy Spirit, is praying. Your mind is not praying
(I Cor. 14:14)

4. Your mind will try to stop you from praying in the Spirit (or tongues) because your mind does not understand what is happening. This is why it is important to continue to speak in tongues. (I Cor. 14:14)

5. Remember when you speak in tongues you are speaking to God, not man. It is highly important that you continue to speak in tongues even though your mind is working against you. Your mind will settle down the more you speak. Tell your mind to settle down. You are going to speak to God with your spirit. (I Cor. 14:2)

6. The new tongue is a real language unknown to you. It is either a language of this world or an angel language. (I Cor. 13:1)

7. You will be able to speak in tongues whenever you desire to speak to God. It energizes your faith as you speak in tongues. (Jude 20, I Cor. 14:4)

8. You can direct your praying in tongues simply by saying, "Father, in Jesus’ name, give me the words to say concerning…," then speak in tongues and God will give perfect words to say according to God’s perfect will for the situation.
(Romans 8:26-28)

9. You can speak in tongues wherever you are. When in public do it under your breath (silently). When in church, and everyone is singing or praising God out loud in the Spirit (tongues), do so also. (John 4:34)

10. This is one way to worship God, in Spirit. Pray in tongues silently when the minister is sharing God’s Word or praying. (John 4:24)

11. God has filled you with His Holy Spirit for ministry service. You are expected by God to pray in tongues and God will empower you for further service to His Glory. As you spend time in the Spirit by praying in tongues, expect that God will begin to use you in other gifts. Be available to God. (I Cor. 14:1)

12. Praying in tongues is not to be forbidden, but used as part of our spiritual weapons against the devil at all times.
(I Cor. 14:37-40; II Cor. 10:2-5;Eph. 5:18; Jude 20; Rom. 8:26-28; I Thess. 5:16-19)
