Stop Panicking. He Has Enough For You, Too.

Stop panicking. He has enough for you, too.
.
As we think about the lesson, Christ taught the multitudes of 5000 people by feeding them; Christ never ran out.
.
Isn’t that the lesson He wants all of us to learn from Him? He has plenty for all of us, with several baskets to spare.
.
What is it that He has for us?
.
His grace—It’s sufficient for all of us. As Jeffery R Holland mentioned in a talk he gave at Stanford University earlier this year, he said, ”Don’t worry about whether His miracles have run out before helping little old you. Don’t panic. He has plenty of blessings to go around… Be believing and enjoy His offer of the ”bread of life”!
.
How do we all think God the Father and His Son feel when we believe things are that way, that they have no more for you?
.
I know I have a personal relationship with my dad, and I can go to him for everything. My brothers and my sister do the same.
.
He usually lets us figure things out on our own, but he always works his ”dad magic,” and by the end of the conversation, we typically feel much better.
.
I believe our Father in Heaven is very similar. I don’t think he’s just going to give us the answer, but he’s going to let us work for it. In return, He has given us a ’big brother’ to show us the way.
.
Christ has more than enough for all of us.
.
Holland went on to say, ”I am convinced that none of us can appreciate how deeply it wounds God the Father and His Son, the Savior of the World, when They find that people do not feel confident in Their care or secure in Their hands or trust in Their commandments… We have a duty to be cheerful.”
.
You panic when you don’t read your scriptures and study the gospel. It’s that simple.
.
When you begin to do what the Lord asks, you’ll see how much food is in the basket. The food has always been there, but where have you been?
.
Happiness, strength, achieving your destiny, and successes can all be yours. The Lord is amongst us and asks,” Where goest thou?” what is your response to Him?
.
My response is, ”Wherever you are, Lord.”
.
Hear Him and follow Him. He is right there, and the basket of His grace is full.

    Mikey, can you please direct me to where I can find Elder Holland’s talk you’re referring to. I must have missed this one!
