Apostle Grace Lubega
Acts 2:6-11 (KJV); Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
When the Spirit of God gives you utterance, He gives you the ability to reach any man regardless of His tribe and tongue.
This was the experience of the disciples of Christ in our theme scripture. The Bible reveals that as each man spoke, each individual outside heard him speak in his own tongue. The man from Cappadocia heard the Galilean speak in his tongue; the man from Mesopotamia also heard that same Galilean speak in his tongue, and so did the man from Egypt, or Pamphylia.
This experience is not limited to simply speaking with our lips. It can be translated into other areas of our lives. God is capable of giving you a concept, idea or invention that every tribe and tongue understands.
Take the example of applications such as Uber. Uber is presently in over 10,000 cities across the globe, cutting across different languages and tongues. The German man understands it, the Italian man understands it, the Slovakian understands it and so does the Lebanese and Singaporean.
Don’t be deluded into thinking that this is merely technology. It is an infallible truth that things are firstly spiritual before they are physical. The creators of such an application by some act of grace received access to the power of language that allows a man to reach men regardless of their tongue.
As a child of God, you must awaken to the reality of this experience. You have the Spirit of God. In you are ideas that can change nations regardless of differences in language because the Spirit in you gives you utterance and that utterance is translated to every man who must hear you in the language he understands.

GOLDEN NUGGET: You have the Spirit of God. In you are ideas that can change nations regardless of differences in language because the Spirit in you gives you utterance, and that utterance is translated to every man who must hear you in the language he understands.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this knowledge. Thank You for the gift of Your Spirit and the wisdom at work in me. My concepts, ideas and innovations are blessed because they do not merely minister to those of my tongue but bless nations, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
