"O Lord, I Have Trusted in Thee, " 2 Nephi 4:28-35

2 Nephi 4:28-35

This last part of this chapter has been difficult for me to get my mind around. I have had some distractions these past few days that have made it harder for me to focus on my studies when I've made them.

Verse 34
stands out as important this go around. I've poured over the verses that reference "trusted" and "trust" in that verse.

Ezekiel 33:13
- "When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it."

These verse of scripture are a reprimand to me this morning, lovingly extended from a righteous Father in Heaven. I'm gliding too much, trusting too much in my own righteousness... which in all reality is DEATH. For he that truly puts his trust in God shall be prospered in the land (see Helaman 12:1)
