I saw this scripture in a whole new light last weekend. In the Gospel Principles book they ask this question:
When has the Lord prepared a way for you to obey Him?
That question really stumped me. And at the same time I thought, "That is a great question! I've never thought of that before?"
So I thought about it. And thought about it.
Finally, during the Relief Society lesson on Sunday, it hit me.
The Lord has definitely prepared a way for me to accomplish this commandment...especially on days when I wonder how I'm going to get through the next!
I remember as a youth telling a teacher of mine at school how I wanted to have a large family. He asked me the inevitable question, "How do you expect to support (pay for) all of them." I naively stated that the Lord would provide. Years later I laughed at my naivity and what a "dumb" answer that was! However, it has dawned on me that maybe it wasn't such a dumb answer after all.
The Lord has commanded us to have families and therefore, as the scripture testifies, He will provide a way for us to accomplish that command. I have seen this happen in more ways than one in my life and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to test the Lord at his word.
"For I the Lord am bound when ye do what I say, but when ye do not what I say, ye have no promise." - - D&C 82:10
