The Baptism Of The Holy Ghost Pt. 2 (Benefits)
This are a lot of hidden treasures in the baptism of the holy spirit. It is an equipment God has given us to live successfully on this earth.
The benefits of praying in the Holy Ghost:
1. Effective prayer: You’ll only pray by guessing if you are praying in your understanding. You’ll be in the dark as regards what to pray for if you only pray in your understanding.
You can never know what to pray for as a natural man. Our prayers are only answered when we pray according to God’s will. -
Praying only in your understanding limits you and God is usually not always committed to it.
There are many times when all we need to do is to pray in the Holy Ghost.
Speaking in the Holy Ghost is an upgrade to spiritual language.
1 Corinthians 14:14-17,
Effective prayer happens when you pray in tongues.
2. It Edifies You:
(1 Corinthians 14:4)
When you pray in tongues you charge up your spiritual life. Not praying in tongues leaves you cold & unfired up.
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Building up our faith by praying in the Holy Ghost clears every doubt and worry we have.
3. It Helps You Become More Yielded To The Spirit:
As believers the real battle we fight is the battle against spirit and flesh (feelings).
4. It Gives You Access To Mysteries:
What’s going to be isn’t always going to be except you take it up and we only know what these things are when we pray in the Holy Ghost.
There are mysteries about our life that can only be accessed by praying in the Holy Ghost.
(1 Corinthians 14:2)
5. It Gives Us Access To Our Spiritual Gifts:
We all have spiritual gifts, but we’ll never realize our spiritual gifts if we don’t pray in tongues.
6. It Helps To Build Character:
If you’re struggling with your character it’s because you’re not spending time praying in tongues. Your Christianity is powerless when you’re "prayerless". Your struggle with sin reduces when you pray in the Holy Ghost.
