Throughout the most recent general conference, President Russell M. Nelson emphasized the importance of personal revelation and learning to discern the voice of the Lord in our lives.
He admonished those listening, “As we seek to be disciples of Jesus Christ, our efforts to hear Him need to be ever more intentional. It takes conscious and consistent effort to fill our daily lives with His words, His teachings, His truths.” (“Hear Him,” April 2020 general conference.)
With that in mind, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is releasing videos from Church leaders sharing how they #HearHim. In the introductory video for the series, Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shares how he hears the Lord, through feelings and thoughts that come through his scripture study.
The video was released through his social media accounts. You can watch it in full below:

Recently, I was asked how I hear the voice of the Lord in my life. One of the ways I #HearHim is through studying the scriptures. The scriptures are the pre-recorded voice of the Lord. And it is not hearing an audible voice, per se, although that can happen. It is hearing the scriptures in a feeling. A feeling in your heart. How do you #HearHim in your life?
