There is No Searching for His Undersanding

Today I read Isaiah 40 and I really liked one of the last verses.  Isaiah says, "Hast though not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching for his understanding."  What a wonderful description of our Heavenly Father and our Savior!  He is never weary of hearing from us and no matter how often we come to Him and ask Him for help He will be there for us.

The second part, there is no searching for His understanding, is also very comforting.  Heavenly Father does not change.  He has told us His Gospel and what we need to do in order to return to Him.  We don't have to wonder what His will towards us is.  He has already made it known to us.  For example, when I was in my early 20's I used to hear young men preparing for a mission talk about how they wondered if serving a mission was the right thing for them to do.  They would talk about this great spiritual journeys they would go on to get an answer.  These young mean bother me so much.  They already have their answer of whether serving a mission is right for them.  President Kimball said that EVERY worthy young man should serve a mission.  President Monson has renewed the call calling missionary service a "priesthood responsibility".  There is no need to seek out personal revelation on this matter, an answer has already been given.  And it is wonderful to know that we don't need to search out His Gospel.  Nephi tells us in 2 Nephi 32 that no "more will be given until He shall manifest Himself to you in the flesh."  We need to stick to what we have been taught and told and all will be well with us.  Until tomorrow.
