Alma 9:9-11

We receive deliverance every day. In unexpected forms and sometimes at unexpected times, but we are continually and repeatedly being delivered. Sometimes, I think we take that for granted. We forget just how good God is to us. We receive hundreds of blessings and witness dozens of miracles on a daily basis, yet we are so quick to doubt and be discouraged.
I would propose that we need to take time and remember.
Remember how many times we have seen the Lord's hand in our lives.
Remember how blessed we truly are.
Remember that God has delivered us in the past, without fail, and trust that He will do so again.

Do ye not remember that our father, Lehi, was brought out of Jerusalem by the ahand of God? Do ye not remember that they were all led by him through the wilderness?
 10 And have ye forgotten so soon how many times he adelivered our fathers out of the hands of their enemies, and preserved them from being destroyed, even by the hands of their own brethren?
 11 Yea, and if it had not been for his matchless power, and his mercy, and his along-suffering towards us, we should unavoidably have been cut off from the face of the earth long before this period of time, and perhaps been consigned to a state of bendless misery and woe.

He is the reason to rejoice in this world.
Don't forget Him.
