“I urge you to stretch beyond your current spiritual ability to receive personal revelation. In coming days, it will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of the Holy Ghost.”
-President Russel M. Nelson
Since President Nelson gave this talk, “Revelation for the Church, Revelation for Our Lives” in April 2018 General Conference, this statement has been at the forefront of my mind. The prophet of God was URGING me to do something! I felt like I needed to implement this ASAP! But how? I was already reading my scriptures, saying my prayers and attending church. So how was I going to stretch myself? I started looking at personal study guides I could use to help me understand the scriptures more deeply. As I tried various ways to study, understand and seek guidance, I took bits and pieces from various sources. I would try something, take what worked, tweak other concepts and implement. I didn’t really know where I was going or what I was really looking for, but what I started with is very different than what I landed on here. Each of these concepts have a special meaning for me and I know I have been guided and directed to use these concepts in my daily pursuit of building my spiritual ability to receive revelation.
Since using this Outline in my daily life, I have been able to hear, interpret and follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost abundantly more than one year ago! I have been able to start, follow through with and pursue this business with staggering success in a very short amount of time.
I know that if you use these concepts as well, you will be stretched, guided and fulfilled just as I have been.
