How Does The Holy Ghost Communicate To Us?

In Lesson 5 we discussed the need and means for obtaining revelation. This lesson discusses revelation itself. How do we recognize it? How does it occur?

HOW DOES THE HOLY GHOST COMMUNICATE TO US?


Cautions About Personal Revelation

We should pray that the Lord's will be done--and then be willing to submit to his will.

We should remember that revelation will come in the Lord's own time and way.

We receive revelation according to our stewardship and responsibilities.

We should discern whether the revelation has come from God.


When Revelation Is Not Received or Recognized

Sometimes when answers do not come or we do not recognize them, we lose faith.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO WHEN PERSONAL REVELATION DOES NOT COME?


Gospel Doctrine Notebook

Record your thoughts on personal revelation. What impact has personal revelation had on your life? How can you better prepare to receive revelation to guide you?
