And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.—2 Chronicles 20:20
Sometimes we can learn and study and know and sometimes we have to believe, trust, and hope.—M. Russell Ballard
