Paul the Apostle to the Gentiles said that he wished we spoke in tongues as much as he did and stated he believed he spoke in tongues more than all. This was a major weapon to his ministry...staying supercharged spiritually and amplifying his awareness of God and the enemies agenda.
Two Mighty Weapons
The gift of tongues and spiritual discernment are tantamount to our arsenal of weapons,..the weapons of our warfare are not of this earth but are spiritually mighty to the pulling down of strongholds. This tells us that the gift of tongues makes us keenly aware and a spiritual giant that is able to rise above our own strongholds of thought that the enemy pulls on and that are contrary to God's will. Can you see here why Pauls ministry was so powerful. He was soaked in prayer and spoke in tongues so much that he was able to stay walking in the spirit(Gods annointing) to rise over his own will and walk in God's will. He also was single minded, there was no room for distraction and double mindedness, he was constantly speaking in tongues and it strengthened him to to stay the course and overcome. From strength to strength, precept upon precept, line upon line.
Do you maybe see a difference in your walk and the course God He has set before you, compared to how Paul treated his?

The Promised Land
You know the Israelites didn't enter the promised land as soon as they got there. God told them wait until He did something..what was it?
Sanctification is accomplished through Inner Healing, Deliverance and renewing the mind, it is cleaning, purifying making holy and evicting the enemy out from your promised land. But without Faith in Gods promised Word and the gifts of the Holy Spirit it is hard pressed to be accomplished. The problem seems to be that most believers have been given bandaids and not real first aid( Antiseptic, stitches, CPR..etc). Deliverance, life changing healing at the depths of the heart and soul along with real food follows naturally with healing of sicknesses and infirmities. There are myriads of Christians crawling around like babies when if they were fed the right food, treated with real Inner healing and deliverance they would be fighting for their promised land and living in it.
The real reason why Inner healing and deliverance is so important is that sometimes we may be walking on the high hills and then the enemy comes along and trips us up and we go rolling back down. This is the time that understanding how inner healing and deliverance works is so important, it enables the Holy Spirit to work with you to heal brokenness and hurt readily and deal with that enemy that tripped you up.
We seriously need to know what the giants are in our promised land and how they got in front of us to trip us in the first place. This helps us to become aware warriors so it doesn't happen again to us and also be able to help others become aware while helping them so they are not tripped up again. Line upon line precept upon precept God builds you in becoming a warrior that understands how to fight and use the given weapons available.
The spirit of discernment(A keen weapon that the enemy hates) allows you to see the giants that are occupying your promised land. Wisdom and knowledge shows you what to do with those weapons and stand in your authority as a believer. Sometimes though it all seems so overwhelming.., Where do I start? What are the root issues to my problems? What really is it that is hindering me from excelling? LET GOD LEAD!

What will God do?
God will go before you if you hold to His will for you, that is if you desire Him with all your heart, mind and soul.
Why did God not allow Moses into the promised land?
Remember you have passed though the waters(Baptism) like the Israelites coming out of Egypt, the Egyptian soldiers perished there(the old man got wiped out), you have experienced the wilderness where you were purged of your old mindsets(character was formed), now it is time to take courage and trust God to wipe out your giants(whatever they may be) until you inherit your promised land.
Take on the Spirit of Joshua..and say with him,"We can take our land". We have an awesome God!
I hope you are encouraged,
