Whichever ye shall ask … which is right, believing that ye shall receive behold it shall be given unto you.
~ 3 Nephi 18:20 ~
Exercising our faith in our higher power, we grow confident in knowing that through thoughtful prayer and meditation, we may receive counsel and guidance each day. This not only requires our faith in our Higher Power; it requires our faith in understanding and knowing that we may receive answers to our prayers on a daily basis. We come to expect genuine answers and guidance each day we engage in meaningful prayer. We also grow to expect the answers to come in simple ways, through other people, and in those quiet moments we spend time meditating.
The greatest, and most healthy, relationship we learn to cultivate is the one we establish through faith. Daily prayer and meditation is something we do in solitude. Each day, we come to seek answers, we find relief and strength to face our challenges and struggles, and through the course of our journey – we come to rely on the sweet and savory comfort of the counsel and wisdom our time of prayer and meditation brings into our lives.
Not only do we develop a healthy expectation of receiving answers and comfort from our higher power: our daily time in prayer and meditation provides an improvement to our physical, emotional, and mental well-being. We find greater peace, greater sense of happiness and joy, and we become more resilient in our ability to face adversity.
Today’s thoughtful meditation
I will continue to seek God, as I understand him/her, through daily prayer and meditation. Having an expectation that he may answer me through various means as I continue to seek wisdom, counsel, and increase in faith through my journey.
