Modern Prophets Speak, Volume I, No. 16, Packer
God lives, we are his children, he loves us, has a divine purpose for each and every one of us, and is willing to communicate that purpose to young and old, male and female, black and white, as well as the answers to all of life’s challenges, whether great or small.
A modern apostle, Elder Boyd K. Packer, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, explains:
No Father would send His children off to a distant, dangerous land for a lifetime of testing where Lucifer was known to roam free without first providing them with a personal power of protection. He would also supply them with means to communicate with Him from Father to child and from child to Father. Every child of our Father sent to earth is provided with the Spirit of Christ, or the Light of Christ.1 We are, none of us, left here alone without hope of guidance and redemption.
And how can we know this is so? How can we find that guidance and hope we all need to be who we ought to be, to carry on with peace in our heart through every adversity?
