What attributes of God are shown in this verse?
Lift up your hearts and be glad, for I am in your midst, and am your advocate with the Father; and it is his good will to give you the kingdom.
Doctrine & Covenants 29:5
Sometimes our problem isn't knowing if God is real or not. Our problem is who we think God is and the character of God. I like what this verse shows about God. First He tells us we can be glad and have happy hearts. The reason is that He is close by and watching over us. Then He explains He is our advocate. That means He supports us and is on our side. The Lord naturally favors us and will do all He can for us to succeed. It is His good will to give us His Kingdom.
Today’s Takeaway: God is good. He is pulling for us. Consider today how loving and good the Lord is, even when we don’t understand the difficulties around us. In the end, we will see how everything in life was for everyone’s eventual good, if we will trust in the Lord (Romans 8:28).
