“Feasting on the Word,” Ensign, Mar. 2003, 35–39
The word of the Lord in the scriptures is like a lamp to guide our feet (see Ps. 119:105), and revelation is like a mighty force that increases the lamp’s illumination manyfold,” says Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “We encourage everyone to make careful study of the scriptures and of the prophetic teachings concerning them and to prayerfully seek personal revelation to know their meaning for themselves” (“Scripture Reading and Revelation,” Ensign, Jan. 1995, 7). The following accounts from members offer insights gleaned from study of and prayer about the scriptures.
