Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles says that feeling gratitude and focusing on the love for the Savior and His love for each of us open doors to inspiration. “This is how He speaks to me. … This carries me on to answers and responses which I’m so in need of now, just as I have been throughout my life.”
In the video, he talked about how doors open for him, he said, “When I am grateful for what the Lord has given me, then this love opens doors.”
There are many ways to hear the Lord and to him, his comes from thinking of how Jesus Christ loves him. “My most personal experience, when I think of the Savior and how He loves me, and then how much I love Him.”
“What I have learned is that I feel and hear the voice of the Lord in any language. The voice of the Lord transcends the language we speak,” Elder Uchtdorf said. “Even though I often pray in German, I don’t know whether the answers come in German, but they do come to me. And when I pray in English, the answers come too.”
