“So then tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers; but prophecy is for a sign, not to unbelievers but to those who believe. Therefore if the whole church assembles together and all speak in tongues, and ungifted men or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are mad? (1 Corinthians 14:22-23)
There is a reason for everything the Holy Spirit does. The devil tries to make a mess of it. Do not look to yourself, but to the Lord. Be guided by what the Holy Spirit asks you to do. Do not look at what the Spirit is asking another to do. In the Lord is our hope. In all you do, do it as serving the Lord and not as serving yourself, not even others. To God be all glory now and forever.
Lord I look in the mirror and that is how I often take my first wrong step. Help me to look to You that what others see is You and not me. You know what is needed in all circumstances. Your Spirit flows through those who believe that the saints would be instructed and those who do not yet believe would have a witness. Lead me, Lord, to simply reflect the truth of Your light in my life.
Lord Jesus, You came and died for all the nonsense we sinners get caught up in. Guide me, O Lord, that I would live into the life of faith that You have given me. Help me through all the trials and temptations that come that I would not look to myself, but to You, and see how You are always there as my example and guide, but above all else, my Lord and God to whom I should always bow. Amen.
