Insight of the Holy Ghost....

The Holy Ghost will teach us, providing perspective about “things as they really are, and…things as they will be” (Jacob 4:13; D&C 39:6; 75:10). This sense of proportion is needed daily!  Not only does He reach mortals in their many niches, but the Holy Spirit “searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God,” and this must be so because the “things of the Spirit of God…are spiritually discerned” (1 Corinthians 2:10, 14).  The Holy Spirit is thus ready, if we are, to take us well beyond being superficial so that we can learn the things of most worth.
            The ways in which the Holy Ghost teaches are many.  More than once President Marion G. Romney echoed the following: “I always know when I am speaking under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost because I always learn something from what I’ve said’ (quoted in Packer, Teach Ye Diligently, 304).
            In such situations, the substance conveyed is significant, but so is our realization of what is happening! For me, the message is not a whole discourse, but a phrase or a sentence.
Brigham Young taught, "There is not a single condition of life that is entirely unnecessary; there is not one hour's experience but what is beneficial to all those who make it their study, and aim to improve upon the experience they gain"
