1 Nephi 4:6

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I have been thinking a lot about our scriptures! We use the King James version of The Bible, which includes The Old Testament & The New Testament, The Book of Mormon, The Doctrine & Covenants and The Pearl of Great Price. We also have many helps, but perhaps that is best for another post.

My favorite verse happens to be in The Book of Mormon! It is found in 1Nephi 4:6. This is where Nephi and his brothers have been sent back to get the Plates of Brass and have not been able to accomplish this task. This verse is where Nephi says:

For those that know the story, my question is this...how would the story have gone if Nephi had questioned his promptings from the Spirit and gone back to his Father and asked what he should do because it just wasn't necessarily the right thing to do. Well, the theories here could take pages and we don't have wonder because Nephi didn't question, he trusted his promptings and knew how to recognize the Spirit enough to KNOW to just have faith and follow them to accomplish what he was asked.

This scripture originally stood out to me in a time when I was feeling prompted to do something that wasn't the norm as a missionary but it was for the best and The Lord found a way to accomplish what he was asking

I am again working on taking that leap of faith and just follow the Spirit. I know there are great blessings on the other side of such a leap! What is your favorite scripture? Why?

This is what it is to me...watsit2u?
