Being able to hear from and being led by the Holy Spirit are the keys to your success as a Christian. The Holy Spirit is the Truth-Giver Who leads and guides you into profit. Speaking in
tongues activates your spirit and enables rivers of living water to flow
out of it, giving you insight and wisdom to succeed in life.

      2. Your spirit contacts the spiritual realm.
      3. Your soul contacts the intellectual realm.
      4. Your body contacts the physical realm.

    2. The leading of the Holy Spirit is governed by your born-again spirit.
    3. God will light the “candle” of your spirit to lead you (Psalm 18:28).

    2. Your spirit is activated when you pray in tongues (John 7:37-39).
