As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continue to face the ongoing obstacles of the COVID-19 pandemic, they will humbly get on their knees and turn to the Lord and their covenants, said Elder Neil L. Andersen.  

“Once we settle ourselves with our concerns about the health of our family, employment, and the disruptions right before us, we know we need to pray: ‘What am I to do? What am I to learn? How am I to grow in this unusual time?’”

Each who seeks with sincerity will be blessed with the same sure resolve: “All the world is in the hands of the Lord,” said the member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “All things are in His control.”

Speaking to the Church News via video-conferencing as the COVID-19 pandemic continued to cause illness and death, stifle economies and alter daily routines, Elder Andersen reflected on humility, hope and compensatory blessings from the Lord during times of challenge and trial.

“You can never find yourself in a time that the Lord won’t teach you if you are righteous,” he said. “This life is a time for becoming, not just for experiencing. It is a time of being taught from on high. As we are righteous, compensatory blessings always come — even in the most difficult times of our lives.”

‘A time of great learning’

COVID-19 did not surprise the Lord, and He will use it to accomplish His purposes, said Elder Andersen.
