Holy Spirit Baptism
I am a born-again believer who recently asked for the Holy Spirit Baptism. That day two wise women prayed for me and urged me to speak in tongues, all I could say was "Holy" and I felt God was saying to me "Peace, be still". Later that day I spoke in tongues and have been since.
I only do it in my prayer closet and have only shared that this has happened with those two women. My husband doesn't believe in speaking in tongues and I don't feel this is the right time to share it with him.
I still feel slightly silly doing it and don't have a clue as to what I am saying. One of the women said she thought I was filled with the Spirit long ago and just hadn't spoken yet.
I know that the Spirit is working in me and I have all kinds of ideas for witnessing but when I ask my sisters at church they discourage trying to involve the church as a whole but encourage me to do whatever individually. I am not sure where to go with this and how to use the gifts given me.
I know that God works in His time, but I am eager. Is there advice from mature Christians?
By the way our church is small, maybe 35 total.
