1 Nephi 2:19

"And it came to pass that the Lord spake unto me, saying: Blessed art thou, Nephi, because of they faith, for thou hast sought me diligently, with lowliness of heart."

Through the Spirit Nephi was told that by doing the right things he was blessed. By having three things Nephi was blessed greatly.

1, Faith: by faith is all things possible and miracles can happen. Each of the miracles performed by Christ was because of faith. Raising Lazarus from the dead, the woman with the issue of the blood being made whole, the leper that was made clean, the blind man, and many more described in the New Testament.

2, Sought the Lord diligently: by searching for the word of God and understanding Nephi was given great knowledge. Many great prophets followed this example. Adam, our first father, Alma the older (later in the Book of Mormon) and so on up to Joseph Smith.

3, lowliness of heart: meaning humility. Christ said that we all should be like unto little children "of such is the kingdom of heaven." Children submit to their fathers and this is why we must become like them. To submit to our Father who is in Heaven and knows all, so He is the best person to go to when in need of guidance.
