October 20, 2020 - Miracles

Great things often begin small, but God’s miracles are manifest daily. How grateful we are for the supernal gift of the Holy Ghost, the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and His revealed doctrine, ordinances, and covenants found in His restored Church, called in His name.

Elder Gerrit W. Gong, "All Nations, Kindreds, and Tongues", General Conference, October 2020

Throughout my life, I used to think that miracles that happen are a one time event. Something that happens immediately. A "one and done" situation.

But as I sit and think about how Heavenly Father works line upon line, little by little, in most everything He does, why wouldn't His miracles be that way too? Expecting miracles now is a product of this instant gratification society.

The beauty of nature is a miracle. And it doesn't just happen once or immediately. It takes time. An acorn doesn't become a grand oak tree right away. It takes a long time. There is a process, a natural law, that must be followed. And isn't that process considered a miracle in and of itself?

So, why wouldn't the miracles I need in my life, and the ones I want in my life, take time? Shouldn't they follow some type of process or law? Shouldn't I?

20 There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings (and miracles) are predicated—
21 And when we obtain any blessing (and miracle) from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated. - D&C 130:20-21 (emphasis added)
