For I am God, and mine arm is not shortened; and I will show miracles, signs, and wonders, unto all those who believe on my name. —Doctrine and Covenants 35:8
Faith precedes the miracle. It has ever been so and shall ever be. It was not raining when Noah was commanded to build an ark. There was no visible ram in the thicket when Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac. Two heavenly personages were not yet seen when Joseph knelt and prayed. First came the test of faith – and then the miracle. —Thomas S. Monson
