Do you know God?
I do. And the wonderful thing is that you can too!
If you find yourself doubting what I say, then I invite you to take a moment and look inside yourself and you will be able to feel His presence. There is a scripture, “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalms 46:10)
This is your Father in Heaven’s sweet promise to come to know Him and feel His love for you. Experiment on His words and see what happens. Let your desire to know if this is true work within you:
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Luke 11:9). Humble yourself and pray, talk to God. Not a memorized “prayer”, not even The Lord’s Prayer. Simply talk with God, speak to your loving Father in Heaven as you would with your best friend.
Thank Him for your blessings, the things in your life that you are grateful for. And ask for His help and guidance with the things that trouble you or that you are unsure about. Ask Him if He is real. Tell Him that you need Him in your life, but that you are not sure He is there or that He loves His children, or whatever your deepest thoughts and desires are. Properly you then close, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
Then be still. See what thoughts and feelings come into your mind and heart. You can feel that He is real. “Yea, behold, I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in your heart.” (Doctrine and Covenants 8:2)
I testify that God is real. He lives. He is our Father. He is closer to you than you realize. He waits to bless you more than ever before. Trust Him and follow the promptings you receive and you will come to know for yourself of the greatness of God!
