Never lag in zeal {and} in earnest endeavor; be aglow {and} burning with the Spirit, serving the Lord – Romans 12:11 (Amplified Bible)

King David asked in Psalm 85:6, “Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?” Many Christians today unwittingly pray like this, asking the Lord for revival. The new man in Christ doesn’t need revival. All through the Epistles, none of the Apostles ever asked God for a revival. That’s because we have in our day something the Old Testament folks didn’t have; we can be filled with the Spirit and revived from within.

We can maintain the glow of the Spirit twenty-four hours every day by praying fervidly in other tongues. This is something you must take seriously this year; be afire for the Lord, bubbling and exuberant in the spirit every day! Jesus said in Acts 1:8, “And ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.” The power that Jesus refers to here is inherent power; power that reproduces or revives itself.

When you pray in tongues, the same glory that the apostles experienced in the Upper Room on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:2-4) can come on you, and you can maintain that glow consistently every day. When you feel weak from within, speak in other tongues, and revive yourself. Jude 1:20 says, “But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.” The solution you require is inside you. The Bible says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels…” (2 Corinthians 4:7).

When you have tough choices and decisions to make, spend time to speak in tongues first! When it looks as though you don’t know what to do, or how to handle the challenges that are coming at you, set yourself to pray fervently in the Spirit! You’ll be stirred and set in the flow of the Spirit to receive direction as to what to do, and how to do it.

Never forget the following passages:

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:18-19

Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? For thou dost not enquire wisely concerning this – Ecclesiastes 7:10

The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts. – Haggai 2:9
