Trust and Faith

Wherefore, brethren, seek not to counsel the Lord, but to take counsel from his hand. For behold, ye yourselves know that he counseleth in wisdom, and in justice, and in great mercy, over all his works. (Jacob 4:10)

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all they ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Prov 3:5-6)

Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do. Wherefore, now after I have spoken these words, if ye cannot understand them it will be because ye ask not, neither do ye knock; wherefore, ye are not brought into the light, but must perish in the dark. (2 Ne 32:3-4)

Sometimes I think we are not given all the answers, because we each have to come to an understanding of the Atonement on our own. Since Christ suffered all things, He knows what we go through in this struggle, and can therefore heal and comfort us. We must still do our part. We must be open and willing to hear what He would tell us, and in the way He would tell us.

Sometimes that means taking a leap of faith and trying to live what we don't yet understand fully, trusting in Him. If any man do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. (John 7:17)

I really draw strength from: Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all they ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Prov 3:5-6)

Thank you for posting that!
