Knowing My Heavenly Father

What can I do to develop a relationship with my Heavenly Father?

Heavenly Father is literally our Father. He loves us. He loves us so much that He provided this Earth as a place for our schooling, and He provided His Son to be both our Master and our Redeemer. He is a Perfect Parent and He desires for all of us to progress and be happy.

Following are a few scriptures that will be directive in helping us understand what to do in order to know our Heavenly Father. There are many important scriptures that can help us know who He is and how much He loves us and desires our happiness. As we come to know Him, we will understand that our happiness is linked to developing trust in Him and becoming like Him. Don’t quit your search with these few scriptures. You can recall other ones and search for more. Go to and search for key words that you find in your scripture search. Also, visit to watch a video on the topic.

Here is a video that I watched:

The Only True God and Jesus Christ Whom He Has Sent

There are many more. But don’t stop there; pray for answers. God will listen to your prayers and help you find answers to your questions.

John 14:6-9:

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.

9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

1 John 4:7:

7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

Alma 30: 44:

44 But Alma said unto him: Thou hast had signs enough; will ye tempt your God? Will ye say, Show unto me a sign, when ye have the testimony of all these thy brethren, and also all the holy prophets? The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.

Doctrine and Covenants 132:22-24:

22 For strait is the gate, and narrow the way that leadeth unto the exaltation and continuation of the lives, and few there be that find it, because ye receive me not in the world neither do ye know me.

23 But if ye receive me in the world, then shall ye know me, and shall receive your exaltation; that where I am ye shall be also.

24 This is eternal lives—to know the only wise and true God, and Jesus Christ, whom he hath sent. I am he. Receive ye, therefore, my law.

These are a few suggested scriptures in this month’s New Era, but there are so many more. Which are some of your favorites? How have they blessed you to come to feel the love that God has for you? How have they blessed you in developing a relationship with your Father and coming to know Him and His Son? How does knowing that God is our Heavenly Father enrich our lives? What does the knowledge cause you to do?
