How We Learn God’s Will

Did you know that you can pray in tongues and receive understanding about your future? As we pointed out earlier, every time you pray in tongues, the Holy Spirit is praying through you the perfect will of God, sometimes for other people, often for your own life.  It is the Holy Spirit’s job to reveal God’s will to you for your life as you do so.

“Why can’t God just send some preacher to me who will tell me God’s will?”

Look at 1 Corinthians 2:8.

Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. (KJV)

If the enemy would have known what God had planned for the future, he would have never crucified Jesus. The implication is the same for you. If the enemy knew God’s plan for your life, he would put up roadblocks and try to stop what God wanted to do. That’s why God is going to reveal His will to you this way. He will give you the interpretation of what the Spirit is praying about so you can get glimpses of His will and begin building images of your future on the basis of that revealed will. Read More…

Self-Talk Is in the Word

In my most recent magazine article, Faith and Healing: When Self-Talk Can Be Good, I talked about a principle that the woman with the issue of blood employed when she received her healing from Jesus.

And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: for she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour. (Matthew 9:20–21 KJV)

The key to this woman’s healing is in this phrase: “for she said within herself.” She wasn’t talking to the crowds or her friends or her family. She wasn’t talking to the unseen realm. She was talking to herself. Whether or not she realized it, she was employing the spiritual principle of self-talk. Read More…
