A Testimony on Receiving the Gift of Tongues

Receiving and flowing in the Gift of Tongues is all about taking thoughts captive, worshipping God, and Faith in the truth of the Word of God.  If you've been struggling to manifest this gifting, the following testimony may give you a boost to keep going.  

It's a beautiful thing to mentor… and after E.J. got his breakthrough in confidently flowing in the gift of tongues, I asked him if he'd testify about it to bless others that are desiring the promise as well.  He welcomed the chance…  BE BLESSED!
Well it all started like this. Actually I've been praying about it for three years to be exact because now its 2015. In all this time I hadn't received it (gift of tongues). So I stopped praying about it. Until this past October/November I just got interested again.  I prayed and prayed but I didn't receive it. 
In December I got really desperate, and so hungry about it, so I did a lot of research about how to get it/what to do in order to get it, etc. I watched a lot of videos on YouTube about speaking in tongues. I discovered that we should move our mouth when we ask for it. Honestly, I prayed to receive it for almost a week, and then out of nowhere, I just wanted to try it. ---And it happened! BUT, the enemy came and told me it was fake, and also tried to make me think it was counterfeit tongues. Then I saw your video, and messaged you about this struggle, and knew to not give up; building my faith. 
On January 2, in the afternoon… I was watching more videos and wanted to try it again because I got really tired of the enemy telling me its not real. So I went to my room. I sat there and just praised God and worshiped Him and really concentrated on HIM.  I just kept saying Hallelujah over and over again until my tongue started to get kind of tied-up-feeling, and the Holy Spirit told me to, "Loosen up. Let it flow".  
Then I just started speaking-- with the enemy continuing to attack, but I didn't listen to him. I just continued speaking and just let go and let it flow until I began to feel the warmth of the Holy Spirit. I began worshiping Him even more and got on my knees and with my hands up, praised Him and just prayed and prayed. I Spoke and spoke until I got so comfortable and felt so free, then I paused for a while. There was this feeling inside of me to speak more. So just couldn't control myself and prayed in tongues again.  I came to a place where I felt so loved and peaceful and ended up crying, all the while still speaking in tongues.  
I actually prayed in tongues for about 5 hours with small breaks, because I just couldn't help myself, I just let it flow even more. I felt so happy
The feeling at first, when I was new with it, was very strange. There was the enemy who just kept telling me that it is fake and I was making it up; trying to make me think it was counterfeit tongues. So I felt very frustrated and doubtful and I couldn't sleep for days.  I had to know more and more on how to truly receive it.  
I didn't give up. I just kept praying, until I 'got it'.  I just let it flow and I fought the feeling of doubt and just went with the flow. And there it was, I had the breakthrough. FAITH is how I got the gift. Its because of Faith. :)))
