Repel the enemy by Praying in Tongues

"So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him " (Isaiah 59:19).

Every child of God has a spiritual `force-field’ around him, which repels the enemy! Did you ever read about Job in the Bible? Satan had tried unsuccessfully to attack the man, and that’s why he asked God, “Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side?…” (Job 1:10). That `force-field’ repelled the attacks of the devil, until Job unfortunately breached it through his wrong confessions. So, there is a `force-field’ around you and you can increase its perimeter through praying in tongues!

Isaiah 59:19 in the Amplified version goes thus: “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him {and} put him to flight [for He will come like a rushing stream which the breath of the Lord drives]” Glory to God! No matter how the enemy tries to come at you this month, the Spirit of God will erect that repellent barrier against him! But guess what? He doesn’t do it all by Himself; He does it through you, for He functions and carries out His ministry in the earth through His kids.

To repel means to force back or drive away someone. Thus as you pray in tongues this month, the force-field of the Spirit that repels the enemy is built around you. That force field keeps him from touching anything and anyone that is connected to you. It’ll keep him from touching your business, your job, your family and anything that concerns you. This month, as you pray in tongue that spiritual force-field is raised and expanded, and shields you completely.

When you feel the pressure coming at you on your job, business, academics or in any area of your life, that’s not the time to cry or cower; that’s the time to pray in other tongues fervently! At such moments, don’t just speak in tongues for five minutes and quit; increase your `fire power!’ Talk in tongues hard, fast and loud enough until the power of God inundates your whole being and saturates the entire environment.

You might start slowly, but as you continue, the spiritual `force-field’ around you gets wider and wider, driving the enemy further away. Stir up fire in the realm of the spirit today by praying in other tongues; no demon hatched out of hell can stand that. Glory to God!

What a glorious month! So many are already having great experiences praying in tongues this month. I just wonder what your experience is like. Share with us today. God bless you!
