Search diligently, pray always, and be believing, and all things shall work together for your good, if ye walk uprightly and remember the covenant wherewith ye have covenanted one with another.” – D&C 90:24

This is an oft-quoted scripture, but as I was reading it today, I realized something.

In the first part of the scripture, we are told to search (the scriptures/prophecies/ways of the Lord), pray, and have faith. Then, things will work for our good.

Another condition is then given – “If ye walk uprightly and remember the covenant…”.

This advice seems pretty redundant. Isn’t that basically what the Lord told us to do in the first part of the scripture?

However, I think that this last part is the important part. We need to walk uprightly. We need to remember our covenants. In fact, if we have chosen to be baptized, then we covenant to always remember Him. Remembering Christ is the heart of the matter.

And the first part of the scripture, the searching, praying, and believing: those are important. What’s cool is – these are the tools we can use in order to keep our covenants. When we search the scriptures, when we pray, and when we exercise our faith, we are remembering the Savior. It is impossible not to!

So – yeah – I like this scripture. It isn’t a trick. Heavenly Father has laid it out for us. We need to remember Him, we need to remember our covenants. And the commandments he has given us will help us to do that. Best of all, when we do remember Him, we are blessed.
