And I said unto them: Have ye inquired of the Lord?
And they said unto me: We have not; for the Lord maketh no such thing known unto us.
Behold, I said unto them: How is it that ye do not keep the commandments of the Lord? How is it that ye will perish, because of the hardness of your hearts?
Do ye not remember the things which the Lord hath said?—If ye will not harden your hearts, and ask me in faith, believing that ye shall receive, with diligence in keeping my commandments, surely these things shall be made known unto you.
1 Nephi 15:8-11
Heavenly Father gives us our agency. Sometimes, if we don’t ask for things, we don’t receive them. It is good to ask questions and to seek knowledge. We need to remember to pray and ask our Heavenly Father. We can rely on him for knowledge, for guidance, and for the blessings in our life that we need and desire.
