As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began. —Luke 1:70
Obedience is a hallmark of prophets; it has provided strength and knowledge to them throughout the ages. It is essential for us to realize that we, as well, are entitled to this source of strength and knowledge. It is readily available to each of us as we obey God’s commandments. —Thomas S. Monson
