“Ask in Faith” – Day 1: Who is God?  

Do you still remember the question you have for God? Keep it in your mind as you do today’s activity.

We are all literally children of God. He knows us because He created us and we lived with Him before we came here to earth. As His children, we can be assured that we have divine, eternal potential and that He will help us in our sincere efforts to reach that potential.

“He understands and feels our sorrows and rejoices in our progress. He wants to communicate with us, and we can communicate with Him through sincere prayer.” Preach my Gospel

President Russell M. Nelson said, “[There are people who] live from day to day without an awareness of God and His goodness unto them. How much better it would be if all could be aware of God’s providence and love and express that gratitude to Him.”


Alma 30:44

“All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.”

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Psalm 82:6

“I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.”

Brigham Young (Discourses of Brigham Young, a former president of the Church)

“I want to tell you, each and every one of you, that you are well acquainted with God our Heavenly Father, or the great Elohim. You are all well acquainted with him, for there is not a soul of you but what has lived in his house and dwelt with him year after year; and yet you are seeking to become acquainted with him, when the fact is, you have merely forgotten what you did know.

“There is not a person here to-day but what is a son or a daughter of that Being. In the spirit world their spirits were first begotten and brought forth, and they lived there with their parents for ages before they came here.”


Why does God care about you specifically?

How can we know God exists?

Has God ever made an impact in your life?

Has God ever helped you through someone else?


Each day write down a thought. It doesn’t have to be long and can be kept in a private journal, kept on notes in a phone, emailed to you or a friend, written as a private message to someone or posted publicly on any social media channel. It could be a doodle on paper, an Instagram story, Facebook post or TicTok video, however you like. You will be blessed for remembering.    

Elder Richard G. Scott taught us to “Write down in a secure place the important things you learn from the Spirit. You will find that as you write down precious impressions, often more will come. Also, the knowledge you gain will be available throughout your life.”
