Even though we don't always get everything we want when we want it, God will provide for our necessities. In the Book of Mormon there was a people who took an oath to never take up weapons of war ever again. These people were called the Anti-Nephi-Lehites, and they had the promised protection of the Nephites. When their mutual enemy, the Lamanites, came to war against them, the Nephites struggled to defend themselves as well as those who they had sworn to protect. When the time came that the Anti-Nephi-Lehites wanted to take up arms to aid their brethren, Helaman forbade them lest by breaking the covenant, or promise, which they had made with the Lord, they would have been slain. However, they had many sons who had not entered into this covenant, and these sons valued the liberty of their fathers, even more than their own lives, and they 'enlisted' to join the army against the Lamanites. See Alma 53:14-16.
Thus we see that once you say you are going to do something, you need to do it. We also see that the liberty of the fathers was protected by the hard work that their sons gave in service. However we cannot look to someone else to fulfill the requirements the Lord has set to enter His kingdom.
When Joseph, son of Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel, was sold into Egypt, he served in several positions where everything was 'commited into his hand'. After more than a couple years since seeing his family he was brought before Pharaoh to interpret a dream.
The dreams of Pharaoh, and Joseph's interpretation, are as follows:(the teal is my own interjections)
Here we see that everything the Lord does is done by the 'mouth of two or more witnesses'. He gave Pharaoh two dreams, plus the testimony of a Prophet. Three witnesses were given that there would be a time of plenty, and then a time of famine.
Here we have more than two times that the Lord has told us there would be a falling away, or an apostasy, before His second coming.
The famine of hearing the words of the Lord is over, the church that Jesus Christ established has been restored again to the earth, which is the restitution of all things, including the Priesthood which is Authority to perform sacred ordinances in the name of Christ.
We are told to "WORK out your own salvation"(Philippians 2:12), and the way has been shown in the scriptures. The Book of Mormon stands as SECOND witness of Jesus Christ. Through the Book of Mormon we find that we must indeed have FAITH in the Lord Jesus Christ, REPENT of our sins, be BAPTIZED by someone holding the proper authority to do so, receive the GIFT of the Holy Ghost, and ENDURE to the END.
I promise that if anyone is struggling with life right now, be it because of family problems, lack of employment, depression, or addiction, by reading the Book of Mormon for 5 minutes a day you will find peace, hope, and balance in your life and family.
