“We face two particular obstacles in being prepared to receive spiritual direction. The first is when we do not believe that daily inspiration is available to us. Instead of looking at ongoing guidance as something available only to leaders and prominent members, we need to truly believe that we too can access inspiration for our regular lives. “The second thing, of course, is worthiness. The Spirit is not going to help an unworthy person,” he said.
All who do humble themselves and with a sincere heart seek the guidance of our Heavenly Father will receive His inspiration.
Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Speaking at a seminar hosted by the Church’s Human Resources Department, he answered questions about being influenced by the Spirit in our daily work. “Spirit Can Guide All Aspects of Life, Elder Scott Says”
