Have you ever wondered why you’re here on earth, what the point of your life is, or whether there’s a life after this one? God has the answers to these questions, and He wants you to know the truth for yourself. You can learn His message for you by studying the scriptures, communing with Him through prayer, and listening to the words of the prophets.
During hard times, we can feel lost or even abandoned by God. Many people question if God is aware of us and if He leads and guides us.
But God truly does live, and He speaks to us. He is the same God who parted the Red Sea, who saved Noah from the flood, and who led Israel into the promised land. And He has the power to work miracles in your life, too. He will hear and answer your prayers. He will guide you through life. He will help you learn His message for you if you seek Him out.
God always hears and answers our prayers. In the Book of Matthew, Jesus makes this promise: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Matthew 7:7). God wants to bless us. He wants to lead us, guide us, and teach us. But He often doesn’t answer prayers or questions that we never ask Him. Show your faith in God by communicating with Him through prayer. Ask Him what He wants for you in life. Your answer may not come right away or in the way you expect, but it will come.
The holy scriptures are full of God’s dealings with His children. The Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon both teach us about who God is, how we can develop a relationship with Him, and how we can return to live with Him one day. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, so His words and commandments are important to us.
Since ancient days, God has called prophets to lead His people. A prophet is someone who has been called by God to give guidance to the entire world. Though God’s commandments never change, the circumstances we encounter in the world are always changing. Through prophets, God helps us know how to navigate the unique challenges and trials of our day. By studying the words of prophets, apostles, and other inspired leaders, you can learn what God’s message is for you today.
