Generate Momentum Toward His Will

If you love the Lord, God has prepared some wonderful things for you that eye hasn’t seen and ear hasn’t heard, and these are the things God wants you to generate momentum toward in your life. Look at 1 Corinthians 2:9–10.

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. (KJV)

The Bible is the will of God for all believers of all ages. It reveals His general will for us, but everybody is a unique creation and God also has a unique plan for you as an individual. The specifics of His will—where to live, your ministry and vocational pursuits, who to marry, etc.—are revealed to you by the Holy Spirit. Both His general and specific will are things we want to build momentum toward in our lives.

Well, how can we receive specific revelation from the Holy Spirit? Look at what Paul writes in verse 13.

Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. (KJV)

What things do we speak? The things God has prepared for them that love Him. How do we speak about them if we don’t even know what they are? We do so by using words from the Holy Ghost. In other words, Paul’s talking about tongues. We see this also in Romans 8:26.

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (KJV)

How do you pray about the will of God for your life if you’re not even sure what it is yet? Well, you can’t, but that’s why the Spirit makes intercession for us according to the will of God with groanings that cannot be intelligibly uttered. That’s tongues. When you pray in the Spirit, you’re making intercession for the saints, yourself, your kids, your wife, your friend, or somebody you don’t know, all according to the perfect will of God.

Now it’s one thing to pray in tongues and remain unaware of what you are praying. It’s another thing to pray in tongues and receive interpretation or understanding about your future. I want to show you some practical ways the Lord has shown me His will through praying in tongues, but I will wait and continue this article in a future blog post.
