In Faith

Day 12: His Will

“And I do this for a wise purpose; for thus it whispereth me, according to the workings of the Spirit of the Lord which is in me. And now, I do not know all things; but the Lord knoweth all things which are to come; wherefore, he worketh in me to do according to his will.” -Words of Mormon 1:7

This scripture inspires me. Mormon was just about to deliver up the plates to his son Moroni when he found this small record–the plates of Nephi. He could have easily dismissed it and set it aside. He had just finished abridging the entire Book of Mormon–surely this one small record out of the hundreds was insignificant, right? But Mormon was in tune with the Spirit, so he heard the whisper to include this record with his abridgment. He wrote the verse above following his decision. What faith Mormon had to listen to such a small and seemingly insignificant prompting. This decision would prove invaluable considering the loss of the 116 pages that would happen centuries later.

In short, the Lord knows what needs to happen. He orchestrates his plan perfectly. All we need to do is trust Him and listen. If we do, He will work His great and glorious will through us.
