“Many Long Strugglings”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
There is a proper price affixed to heaven’s treasures. How strange it is that some profess constant communication with the heavens, and that too on all manner of things; yet when we read of the experiences of the spiritual giants of the scriptures, we discover that of them the Lord required “many long strugglings. ” (See also verse 10 and the commentary on verse 2.)
