Scripture: Luke 16:15

Verse 15 says, “And He said to them, ‘You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.’” The Pharisees misjudged because they looked with their natural understanding. They looked at how valuable something was in the natural and never saw the gold of the Spirit. Praying in tongues often reveals gold in the Spirit! Praying in tongues can reveal a spiritual bar of gold because it empowers us within and further builds our character in Christ. Christ in us is a chief mystery in the entire New Testament and when we pray in tongues we are praying the fullness of Christ in us! But if we focus on the natural or are waylaid by what the flesh wants, we miss what we would potentially see by looking in the Spirit. The Spirit brings us discernment of the times and seasons. But when we pray in the Spirit, we start to discern – we begin to see the way God sees. God’s Word is clear. The question is, what are we going to do with it? If we jump into this head first, we could truly see some radical changes in the days ahead. Let’s start praying in the Spirit every single day without fail. Let’s build obedience and establish a habit of praying in the Spirit and let’s see what God does!
