Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles held his sixth live question-and-answer on Instagram on Tuesday, June 4, where he answered questions submitted by young adult social media followers, counseling them to trust God as they strive to follow promptings from the Holy Ghost and make important decisions in their lives.

In the Q&A, which lasted about 10 minutes, Elder Bednar answered two questions centering on personal revelation, trusting God and decision-making in a discussion with a young married couple named Brock and Bailee. The questions were selected from thousands submitted since Elder Bednar announced the Q&A the day prior, with a focus on questions and concerns from young adults.

The questions were:

  • Sometimes things don’t work out when I follow a prompting. How can I keep trusting in God?
  • There are so many decisions to make about a career, marriage, etc. How do I not get frozen? How can I know which good option is best?

Elder Bednar responded that promptings are rarely isolated instances but rather parts of a sequence, “line upon line, precept upon precept.” He gave an example that if a young man or young woman receives a spiritual prompting to date somebody, that does not necessarily mean that is the person they should marry. Instead, the purpose may be to help them learn and help them develop in preparation for another relationship.
