Read the full chapter here: 1 Nephi 4

Passage #1

Now behold ye know that this is true; and ye also know that an angel hath spoken unto you; wherefore can ye doubt? Let us go up; the Lord is able to deliver us, even as our fathers, and to destroy Laban, even as the Egyptians.

1 Nephi 4:3

Precept #1

If you want to doubt something, place it in man. Always trust that God is able to do what He says he’ll do – and to help you accomplish what He asks of you.

Did you have an occasion to choose to trust God over someone on earth, like a friend or colleague? What was the outcome? And how did it affect your relationship with God?

Passage #2

Inasmuch as thy seed shall keep my commandments, they shall prosper in the land of promise. . . .

Surely the Lord hath commanded us to do this thing; and shall we not be diligent in keeping the commandments of the Lord?

1 Nephi 7:14, 34

Precept #2

Be diligent in keeping God’s commandments.

In what ways has recognizing opportunities to keep God’s commandments allowed you to feel connected to Him?

Passage #3

And it came to pass that when Zoram had made an oath unto us, our fears did cease concerning him.

1 Nephi 4:37

Precept #3

Be honorable. Keep your word always. If you make a promise – follow through. This includes your covenants with God.

How has honorably keeping your covenants brought you closer to God?

Passage #4

And I was led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which I should do.

1 Nephi 4:6

Precept #4

Listen to the Spirit as you strive to accomplish your goals and God’s goals for you.

What opportunities have you taken to let the Spirit of God lead you in your day to day experiences? How has that blessed your life?
