Not only those outside the LDS Church, but as indicated from my conversation with a dear friend, church members too need to understand the great privilege that is ours. Some Mormons today do not appreciate and others discount the value of personal revelation.
We cannot do this.
Among God’s greatest gifts is the privilege of kneeling, speaking with God, listening for communication from him through the Holy Ghost, and receiving guidance and direction in all facets of our lives. Initial revelation must engender a quest to more clearly discern the language of the Spirit and distinguish it from the myriad false voices in the world today. Then will come additional and more finely tuned personal revelation.
We must be ever conscious of the extraordinary blessings that are ours. We must recognize that guidance and direction are available, that the Spirit will teach proper principles and practices that provide us protection, direction and purpose in life. It is incumbent upon every member of the church to diligently seek personal revelation and thereby be empowered by God.
