Topic: HIDDEN SECRETS BEYOND HUMAN COMPREHENSION
1 Corinthians 14:2 (KJV)
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.
You often hear the unschooled in the things of the Spirit query those who speak in tongues, as to why we speak in a language we don’t understand. Well, that’s the wisdom of God; that’s how God has chosen it to be, to bypass the limitations of our mind, so we can access His hidden secrets.
The Greek word translated mysteries in our theme Scripture also means, “hidden secrets.” There are hidden secrets beyond human comprehension; beyond human understanding. Because of the fall of man, the human soul often struggles to grasp the things of the Spirit. And for God to achieve His purposes through man, He has chosen to bypass our understanding by giving us a language that has direct access to His hidden secrets.
I like it when our theme Scripture reveals that whenever we speak in tongues, we’re not speaking to men. So, why bother to explain yourself to any man when you’re not speaking to men, but to God. Even though you don’t understand what you’re saying, the God who gave the language says that’s His secret code to decode His hidden secrets; and once He understands what you’re saying, that’s it!
As long as God understands what you’re saying, go ahead and continue to unravel the mysteries of God for your life, by speaking in tongues often.
