Utterance of the Spirit
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
– Acts 2:4 (KJV)
When I had cancer on my vocal cord, I could not utter a word, and I would go to
my study to pray, read the Word and meditate for hours on end. As I spent time
in God’s presence, I would lay hold to the truth of God’s Word and claim every
promise I could find.
Because I could not even utter a sound, one of my favorite verses during this
time was Acts 2:4, that the Holy Spirit gave them utterance. If you study it
out in the original text, it actually reads, “as the Holy Spirit enabled them
to express their original selves.”
When you speak in that heavenly language, that’s actually the original you, the
real you speaking. That is the pre-fall you expressing to God your prayers,
desires and entreaties in a language you do not understand, unless the Holy
Spirit gives you the interpretation.
When you pray in that heavenly language each day, it sets the atmosphere for
Holy Spirit, refresh my prayer language today so that I can do battle in the
spiritual realm throughout the day.
