19 And if there were miracles wrought then, why has God ceased to be a God of miracles and yet be an unchangeable Being? And behold, I say unto you he changeth not; if so he would cease to be God; and he ceaseth not to be God, and is a God of miracles.
- Because of this truth, Nephi can testify boldly that “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” (1 Nephi 10:19).
- Because of this truth, Moroni can testify, in the passage above, that the same God who performed miracles anciently will perform miracles in our lives if we have faith in Him.
God made covenants with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and He will always fulfill His covenants. His time horizon is so much longer than ours, and He is patient with us as we painfully learn to live up to those covenants and to receive His blessings.
Today, I will place my faith in God as I face the challenges of the coming year. I will remember that He is eternal and unchanging, that His covenants are durable, and that His words and actions toward His children are consistent over time.
