Do you believe and follow?
General Conference is coming in about a month. We will be able to hear from the prophet and apostles. Do you believe that what the prophets and apostles say are true? Do you follow their counsel? Now there are a few different things that can happen:
- You don’t believe and you don’t follow.
- You believe and don’t follow.
- You don’t believe and follow.
- You believe and follow.
This can go for anything, like dating, word of wisdom, or reading your scriptures.
Here is an example: Laman and Lemuel did not believe that they should go to the promised land, but they went anyways. Because they did not believe it was the right thing to do they complained most of the time. Nephi was not sure if leaving Jerusalem was right. He cried to the Lord for help and his heart was softened. He then believed and followed the words of his father.
Do you have questions about some things? I know that Heavenly Father will not make fun of you when you ask questions. He will answer you. You just need to have faith and be willing to do as the Lord says.
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” -James 1:5-6
Believe and Follow.
