Opening The Windows Of Heaven

Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study

1 Nephi 12:6- “I saw the heavens open.”

Imagine if the heavens were continually open in your marriage and family? What would that look like and how would it change things?

Revelation can save a failing marriage and dysfunctional family.

Revelation requires doing our homework, and the Apostles teach that we can receive near constant revelation. I think the Lord rewards those who hunger and thirst after righteousness. For example, the Apostles say when you want to talk to God pray, and when you want God to talk to you ponder the scriptures.

Elder Richard G. Scott said,

“Pondering a passage of scripture can be a key to unlock revelation and the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Ghost. Scriptures can calm an agitated soul, give peace, hope, and a restoration of confidence in one’s ability to overcome the challenges of life. They have potent power to heal emotional challenges when there is faith in the Savior. They can accelerate physical healing.”

The Holy Ghost is still and small and it is not a loud or harsh voice. Therefore, it will not compete with the noise we typically surround ourselves with. For example, a lot of people feel compelled to constantly have background noise and which is often from the TV or worldly music; however, this blocks out the spirit.

The father of the family is a prophet to his family, and he must work together with his wife and then God will bless them with great power.
