3 Ways to Develop a Personal Relationship with God

3 Ways To Develop a Personal Relationship with God - A Profile of a Man Praying To Illustrate One Way We Can Develop a Relationship with God

There are many ways to know for yourself that Heavenly Father lives and loves you. You can:

1. Speak to Him through prayer and ask Him for reassurance and love (Bible, James 1:5).

2. Read the testimonies of special witnesses called apostles and prophets. They have had special and unique experiences with God and have recorded these experiences in books for others to read and study. These books are called scriptures, and they include the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon (Bible, 2 Timothy 3:14-17).

3. Keep God’s commandments, which bring you closer to Him and help you know that He lives (Bible, John 14:21-23).

Watch the video below to see how two people used prayer, scripture study, and keeping God’s commandments to grow closer to God and establish a meaningful relationship.

God Is Our Heavenly Father. He Wants a Relationship With You.

The best way to create a personal relationship with God is the same way that you come to know anyone better: through communication.

When teenagers leave home for an extended period of time, their father often requests that they call home every night to tell him about their day. Fathers love their children, and are concerned about their welfare.

God, our Heavenly Father, wants to hear from us as well. He wants to have us tell Him about our successes, our heartaches, our questions, and our concerns. He wants to be involved in our lives.
