For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. – 1 Cor. 14:2
When you pray in tongues, it is communication at a higher level. Divine communication with God, the voice of Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. It is communication at a higher level in the realm of the Spirit. A realm that is too high for satan to enter. So, while you are praying, you are taking him out –cutting the enemy off.
When you are baptized with the Holy Spirit, you are baptized with God’s breath. You are using God’s Holy breath to set things up on earth that satan cannot stop. Things that not even you can stop. So, God is not only hiding things from satan in our prayer, He is also hiding things from us. If we knew everything God was doing while we were praying, we might try to “move the checkers” ourselves. Trying to do things the way we think they should be done.
So, every time you open your mouth to pray in the Spirit, you are breathing God’s breath and communicating with God at a higher level in the Spirit realm. This is not common communication. Don’t take this lightly. This is not like talking to any physical being or texting someone 0r communicating through social media — this is the highest form of communication that will ever exist!
