He exclaimed many things unto the Lord

While reading my scriptures tonight, I ended up in 1 Ne 1:14:

And it came to pass that when my father had read and seen many great and marvelous things, he did exclaim many things unto the Lord; such as: Great and marvelous are thy works, O Lord God Almighty! Thy throne is high in the heavens, and thy power, and goodness, and mercy are over all the inhabitants of the earth; and, because thou art merciful, thou wilt not suffer those who come unto thee that they shall perish!

At this point, Lehi is having a vision. In the vision, he saw someone I presume to be Jesus and 12 others, I presume to be his apostles. The first person gave him a book to read, and after reading it, the above was his response.

Under the verse, I had written the question: do I have a similar reaction when I read the scriptures?

I wondered again tonight if I have the same reaction as Lehi when I read the scriptures. I wonder if any of us do? Do we trudge through the scriptures trying to get in our 15 minutes or our chapter each day? Or do we give praise to God?

One thought on “He exclaimed many things unto the Lord

  1. Perhaps we do have similar experiences. Similar but perhaps to a lesser degree. Lehi didn’t say this happened to him everyday either. I don’t think we can expect to have incredible experiences everyday because that would eliminate the living by faith aspect of our earthly test. We certainly find Gods greatness and mercy in the scriptures.
