Mosiah 4:11

"And again I say unto you as I have said before, that as ye have come to the knowledge of the glory of God, or if ye have known of his goodness and have tasted of his love, and have received a remission of your sins, which causeth such exceedingly great joy in your souls, even so I would that ye should remember, and always retain in remembrance, the greatness of God, and your own nothingness, and his goodness and long-suffering towards you, unworthy creatures, and humble yourselves even in the depths of humility, calling on the name of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly in the faith of that which is to come, which was spoken by the mouth of the angel."
Mosiah 4:11

That is all one sentence.  Dang.  Anyway, I said I would tell you what "this" was from yesterday’s scripture… and here it is.  If we remember God, and all that he has done for us, and humble ourselves, recognizing the parent-child relationship there, and that he is wiser than we are… and if we call upon him with faith… then we will have all of those things that we talked about yesterday.  In case you don’t remember, here is a refresher:

1.    constant happiness
2.    constant fulfillment / love that fills us
3.    continual remission of sins (!)
4.    continual inflow of knowledge...
5.    calm

Those are pretty amazing things.  And all it takes is some humility on our part.  I do know how tough that can be… admitting that someone in the universe might be smarter than we are… admitting that anyone might know more about us than we do… it’s tough.  But, looking at all those things that we could have… isn’t it worth it to try?  I think so. :)
