April 8, 2020 – Search the scriptures

“Scriptures are like packets of light that illuminate our minds and give place to guidance and inspiration from on high. They can become the key to open the channel to communion with our Father in Heaven and His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ.

They are always available when needed. Their use provides a foundation of truth that can be awakened by the Holy Ghost. Learning, pondering, searching, and memorizing scriptures is like filling a filing cabinet with friends, values, and truths that can be called upon anytime, anywhere in the world.”

  1. Elder Richard G. Scott, “The Power of Scripture”, Ensign, November 2011

Day 3 of the Easter week study guide points us hearing God’s voice through the scriptures. During our prayers we may ask a question and need an answer. Sometimes we need it immediately. Heavenly Father wants us to put in the necessary effort to see how important that particular answer is to us. Part of that effort is to search the scriptures.

Search for the word of God…for you. Listen, hear, what He is telling you. He is most likely answering your prayer through His word by ancient and modern prophets.

Sometimes we think that He’ll answer us by telling us “in our heart and mind” without any effort on our part. That we’ll have this overwhelming feeling. Sometimes that’s true. But most of the time those feelings will hit us while we’re doing our daily tasks that will bring us closer to Christ. Like scripture study. He works in a still, soft, quiet way. Not overwhelming.
