Elder Richard G Scott, How to Obtain Revelation and Inspiration for Your Personal Life, General Conference April 2012
When I am faced with a very difficult matter, this is how I try to understand what to do. I fast. I pray to find and understand scriptures that will be helpful. That process is cyclical.”

Dallin H. Oaks, "The Lord's Way", P50, Last partial paragraph 

"The source of the ancient conflict between (1) reason or intellect and (2) faith or revelation is the professor's rejection of revelation, not the prophet's rejection of reason."

Malachi 3:10  

10 Bring ye all the atithes into the storehouse, that there may be bmeat in mine house, andcprove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not dopen you the ewindows of heaven, and pour you out a fblessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Alma 32: 27, 33, 36

Doctrine and Covenants 93:24

24And atruth is bknowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come;
