1) Ask for it.

If you are a believer in Jesus then you have the Holy Spirit within you. Tongues is therefore PART OF your inheritance. So:
Matthew 7:7 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you
2) Eagerly Desire it.
1 Corinthians 12:31 Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.
1 Corinthians 14:1 Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit…
1 Corinthians 14:12 Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church.

3) Step Out In Faith.
Hebrews 11:6 Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him

4) Now, how to overcome some common obstacles:

-What if I’m making it all up?

Is it your heart’s desire to speak in your God given Spiritual Language? If yes then you will have to operate in Faith. Another way to spell Faith is RISK. Open your mouth and speak out the sounds that are formed in your mind and your heart and remember that:
Hebrews 11:6 Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him

So what if some of the words are made up by you. Never mind, if you are operating in faith be encouraged in that God is pleased with your faith. He will help you get things right!

So form the sounds, speak them out loud. You may only have one or two syllables. Wonderful! Say them in every possible way you can say them. Don’t despise the days of small beginnings. Over time you’ll grow in confidence and vocabulary.
1 Corinthians 14:39 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues.

-What if I’m lead by the wrong Spirit?

Luke 11:9-13 Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil,know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

John 16:13-15 “…when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.

-I open my mouth but nothing comes out

It’s true that some people will open there mouth and words will just gush out without any effort on their part. While this is a wonderful testimony of many people who receive the gift of tongues, it doesn’t always happen this way. Remember we can’t put God in a box or designate a strict formula to the way the Spirit of God wants to operate.

Often people expect to be literally possessed by the Holy Spirit. But remember God has given us a free will to choose. Chances are the Holy Spirit will not overtake you and move your mouth and tongue for you.
1Cor 14:32 You are in control: the spirits of the prophets are subject to the control of the prophets

-But you are to be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit of God.

Speaking in tongues is often just like speaking a foreign language. The words sound strange and they can seem very unnatural when forming them with our mouth!
It’s our responsibility to speak the words as we heed the instruction of our Language tutor – the Holy Spirit.

At time, for some people it may even feel extremely uncomfortable. That’s O.K. This is why the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. Be encouraged that God is in the midst of your learning experience to comfort. It’s what he’s promised!

The Holy Spirit. Who is He?



The term “anointing” is not a trendy catch-phrase that was coined by Charismatics and Pentecostals. The anointing is promised to every believer. It is received when we seek after the Lord, when we make His priorities our priorities, and when we establish His Kingdom. The anointing comes with specific purposes and functions to the life of a believer. Below are 6 results of the anointing of God on your life:

1Your spiritual eyes will be opened. When God sends His anointing, it reveals things that were previously not known to you, causing you to see with eyes of faith what God already sees as reality. (Ps. 92:11a)

2. Your spiritual ears will hear. The anointing opens your ears to the voice of God, causing you to hear His will and direction clearly for your life and the season that you are currently in. (Ps. 92:11b)

3. Your life will flourish. The anointing causes your life and destiny to flourish, even in the midst of a dry and desert place. (Ps. 92:12a)

4. Your spiritual life will stand the test of time. Psalm 92:12 compares an anointed life to the growth of a cedar tree. A cedar tree is known for its exceptional longevity. With the anointing, your spiritual life will be forever growing and increasing, avoiding the common pitfall of stagnation as the years go by. (Ps. 92:12b)

5. You will be abundantly blessed. The anointing moves you from a place of “just getting by” in your spirit, to overcoming and living in abundance. (Ps. 92:13)
6. God will reveal Himself through you. When you live with an anointing on your life, the Lord will use you to display His power and His glory to the world. ( Ps. 92:15)

“The anointing of the Holy Spirit is unlimited. It is we that set the limits.”~ Benny Hinn

“The anointing is not mystical something out there. The anointing is the presence and power of God manifested.”~ Rodney Howard-Browne

“The secret to the anointing is found in surrender, and it is only possible through prayer and brokenness before our Lord Jesus Christ.”~ Benny Hinn
