1 Nephi 17

Last night while I was reading the book of Mormon I was comforted by the spirit and reaffirmed my admiration for Nephi. In this chapter he gives a great pep talk having faith in the Lord. Beleiving that He will prepare the way we should go even when the way seems dark and unknown. I loved how he taught his doubting brothers this principle by reminding them of how the Lord lead previous prophets-mainly Moses and the Egyptians to refine them and striten them with his rod.

vs 30 "and nothwithstanding they being led, the Lord their God, their Redeemer, going before them, leading them by day and giving light unto them by night and doing all theings for them which were expedient for man to receive, they .....hardened their hearts and blinded their minds against moses and the true and living God."...He is true to his word. vs31 According to his word He DID destroy them and according to his word he DID lead them" He did everything according to his word.
vs35 The Lord esteemeth all flesh in one; he that is righteous is favored of God...vs40 He loveth those who will have him to be thier God"

Just as he lead the Egyptians he will lead ME according to his word.

"And I will be your light in the wilderness; and I will prepare the way before you, if it so be that ye shall keep my commandments; wherefore, inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall be led towards the promised land; and ye shall know that it is by me that ye are led."

Where is my promised Land?

vs38 He leadeth away the righteous into precious lands, and the wicked he destroyeth.."

I supposed it is anywhere where I feel safe and supported by other righteous people the Lord has also lead here.
