7 And I do this for a wise purpose; for thus it whispereth me, according to the workings of the Spirit of the Lord which is in me. And now, I do not know all things; but the Lord knoweth all things which are to come; wherefore, he worketh in me to do according to his will. (Words of Mormon 1:7)
Acknowledging our own limitations can be a key to success and happiness. Most of the decisions we make are based on incomplete information. Very often, what we need to do is to follow our convictions. We may know what is right even if we don’t know all of the reasons why. That is an opportunity for us to exercise our faith and to trust that we are guided by a Being who does know all things. Without that conviction, we might be immobilized, but with it, we can move forward trusting that all things will be revealed to us as quickly as we need to know them. Mormon did not know what was going to happen with the first 116 pages of his book, but he did know that he was following the voice of inspiration in adding the small plates of Nephi to his record.
