As Nephi concluded his sacred record, he left us a wonderful, comprehensive promise that when we "feast upon the words of Christ ... , the words of Christ will tell [us] all things what [we] should do" (2 Ne. 32:3). This is a very bold promise. Can we really receive divine direction in all things?
In the first chapter of the Book of Mormon, Nephi tells how his father, Lehi, beheld a vision. In that vision, an angel gave Lehi a sacred book, and "as he read, he was filled with the Spirit of the Lord" (1 Ne. 1:12). When we search the scriptures, individually or as families, our hearts and minds are filled with the Spirit of the Lord. With that Spirit, we can indeed find the direction we seek within the pages of the standard works. - Spencer J. Condie, “Feast upon the Words of Christ,” Ensign, September 2004
