1 Nephi, Chapter 9

5 Wherefore, the Lord hath commanded me to make these plates for a wise purpose in him, which purpose I know not.

6 But the Lord knoweth all things from the beginning; wherefore, he prepareth a way to accomplish all his works among the children of men; for behold, he hath all power unto the fulfilling of all his words. And thus it is. Amen.

A reminder to me that sometimes we don't know why we're supposed to do the things the Lord asks us to do. But because the Lord knoweth all things from the beginning, He has a purpose and knows why we should do these things we ask. We need to have faith to do as we should do - in time, we will be able to see the Lord's purpose.


  1. I have to remind myself that the reason might not be something we think of as a great blessing. Many times the purpose of challenges is to help us learn and grow...

  2. I think learning to be obedient is one of the most important things we should learn. That takes faith.
