I was reading in Moroni 10:15 the other day and stopped where it listed the Gift of Tongues among the Gifts of the Spirit that the Lord promises to those who have faith in Him. I felt a little sad thinking how I had never really experienced this gift. I served a mission in a foreign country and felt that the Lord blessed me to learn the language, but I don’t think that is the same. So, I asked God, “Why have I not had the Gift of Tongues?” My answer surprised me.
I heard a Voice speak to my mind, “You have experienced the Gift of Tongues frequently in your life. Do you not know? When you speak by the power of the Holy Ghost, you speak the Tongue of Angels and this is My Word.”
There are times when it is expedient for one of Gods servants to speak in a different language through this gift, but one of the most common usages of this gift is when we are given by the Power of His Spirit the words to speak, even the words of Angels.
Since I first posted this on the Gift of Tongues I have learned much. This was for me a vital gift necessary to receive the Second Comforter. When speaking in tongues, one must become as a little child and speak from the soul, allowing the words to flow; even if it sounds like just broken syllables, and to allow the glory to envelop your entire being. It was for me, among a couple of other things, the last hurdle to open the veil.
