The Prophet Joseph Smith taught that faith is “the moving cause of all action” in intelligent beings (Joseph Smith, compiler, Lectures on Faith [1985], 1–2). Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ manifests itself in many ways. It may give one person the power to choose the right or the power to be healed or to heal others. Another person may be motivated to seek reconciliation with an adversary or to fast and pray for the softening of family members’ hearts. Faith can teach us to trust in the Lord, even to sacrifice ambitions important to us, knowing that His map for our mortal journey may be far different—but ultimately far better—than our own.

Wherever members have faith in the Lord, there He will be, blessing their lives and the lives of those they love and serve.
