1 Nephi 10:19 -- On Seeking

"For he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto them, by the power of the Holy Ghost, as well in these times as in times of old, and as well in times of old as in times to come; wherefore, the course of the Lord is one eternal round."
1 Nephi 10:19

Sometimes we think that God has changed the way he does things... that somehow he has stopped doing miracles, or that he favored people in the past a lot more than he does us.  We think that those kinds of things can't happen anymore, or that prophets and apostles today are somehow less potent than their predecessors... but here, God tells us that the rules don't change.  He is the same now as he has been in the past, and the gospel works the same way.  If we really look, and work, to find God, we still will, just as anyone did in the scriptures.
The scriptures are filled with stories of how one person, with God's help, can make a difference.  In battles, in conversion, in slavery, in leadership, and in so many other things.  The same is true today.  We can make a difference wherever we are, with God's help.  If we seek to know God and his mysteries, he will teach us, and lead us to accomplish good works.  Miracles do happen, and as we seek to learn the gospel, and understand God, we will see more and more of them.  Today, let's take God up on his promises.  Let's seek diligently, and start finding out for ourselves the mysteries of God.
