Elder Neil L. Andersen said we live in days preceding the Lord’s Second Coming and a time when the gospel is being taken to all the world.
He said we face many struggles and uncertainties.
“Neal A. Maxwell once said to me, ‘If everything is going perfectly for you right now, just wait,’” Elder Andersen said.
He said keeping a clear perspective is not always easy in the midst of trials.
“Seeing and believing the Lord’s miracles in establishing His kingdom on earth can help us see and believe that the Lord’s hand is at work in our own lives as well,” Elder Andersen said.
He gave many examples of faithful members. He spoke of members from Haiti, faithful members in Thailand and couples on the Ivory Coast.
“God’s miracles are not just happening in Haiti, Thailand and the Ivory Coast,” Elder Andersen said. “Look around you. God is mindful of every people.”
He said sometimes we wonder how we can more clearly see His hand in our own lives.
“The Savior said, ‘Doubt not.’ ‘Be not afraid, only believe.’ When you pray in faith to see the Lord’s hand in your life, He will open your spiritual eyes even wider, and you will see more clearly that you are not alone,” he said.
He said to look for the Lord’s hand in the past, in our day, and in the days to come.
“May His prayer be our prayer: ‘Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.’”
