Q: Is speaking in tongues of the devil?

A: No! When you ask the heavenly Father for one of His promises, you will never be given something from the devil.

Jesus said in Luke 11:10-13: “For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. You fathers—if your children ask for a fish, do you give them a snake instead? Or if they ask for an egg, do you give them a scorpion? Of course not! So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.”

The Apostle Paul said, “For if I pray in tongues, my spirit is praying…” (1 Corinthians 14:14). We see here that the “I” who was doing the praying was Paul. He did the speaking in an unknown tongue, but his spirit did the praying.

It’s no wonder Satan tries to create fear and confusion about asking for this gift. For one thing, from 1 Corinthians 14:2, we know that when we pray in the spirit, we are not speaking to men but directly to God. Our spirit man has a straight communication to God, bypassing our human minds. A man’s mind is Satan’s battleground (2 Corinthians 10:4-5). Every time a believer is stopped from praying in the spirit by the lie that “speaking in tongues is of the devil,” they are hindered from entering into the deep things of God. Satan fears you having an intimate relationship with the heavenly Father; so he will do his very best to stop it. Never allow Satan’s tactics to stop your time alone with God!

Confidently go before your heavenly Father with your desire to discover the deep things of God by being baptized in the Spirit and speaking with other tongues. Devil-overcoming, kingdom-of-darkness-destroying power will be yours as you walk in the treasures of His wisdom.
