We live in a world where wickedness abounds, yet those who love the gospel are strong in it. What do we do in this kind of world? We see an example of Nephi in 3 Nephi, who was a man of God. Here was what happened to him as he was valiant in a wicked world.
"And he did minister many things unto them; and all of them cannot be written, and a part of them would not suffice, therefore they are not written in this book. And Nephi did minister with power and with great authority.
And it came to pass that they were angry with him, even because he had greater power than they, for it were not possible that they could disbelieve his words, for so great was his faith on the Lord Jesus Christ that angels did minister unto him daily.
And in the name of Jesus did he cast out devils and unclean spirits; and even his brother did he raise from the dead, after he had been stoned and suffered death by the people.
And the people saw it, and did witness of it, and were angry with him because of his power; and he did also do many more miracles, in the sight of the people, in the name of Jesus." (3 Nephi 7:17-20)
Do we have the faith of Nephi? Do we have the faith to believe in miracles? I think we sometimes do not know what the Lord can accomplish though us if we but have faith. May we ever have faith in him, is my prayer.
