Personal revelation is one of the greatest gifts we receive during our time on earth. Revelation is how we know God exists, how we begin to comprehend His incredible love for us, and how we better understand His plan of salvation. Coming to know that God is aware of our needs, desires, and circumstances helps us be closer to Him. Revelation specifically for you is personal because God’s direction may be different for everyone.
One of the many ways we can receive revelation is by participating in general conference—concentrating on what we feel as we listen to the speakers and the music. What message was intended just for you?
The Lord promises us that if we ask, we will receive revelation upon revelation, and knowledge upon knowledge (Doctrine and Covenants 46:11). President Russell M. Nelson teaches us one way to learn to receive revelation:
“Pray in the name of Jesus Christ about your concerns, your fears, your weaknesses—yes, the very longings of your heart. And then listen! Write the thoughts that come to your mind. Record your feelings and follow through with actions that you are prompted to take. As you repeat this process day after day, month after month, year after year, you will ‘grow into the principle of revelation’” (“Revelation for the Church, Revelation for Our Lives”).
Personal revelation is as unique as a fingerprint—it’s different for everyone. It’s important to learn how to prepare to receive revelation and how Heavenly Father communicates with you specifically.
Below are experiences of members of the Church from around the world on how they prepare for and receive revelation.
