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. :)))
