For behold, the time cometh, and is not far distant, that with power, the Lord Omnipotent who reigneth, who was, and is from all eternity to all eternity, shall come down from heaven among the children of men, and shall dwell in a tabernacle of clay, and shall go forth amongst men, working mighty miracles, such as healing the sick, raising the dead, causing the lame to walk, the blind to receive their sight, and the deaf to hear, and curing all manner of diseases.—Mosiah 3:5
Just as important as these “mighty miracles” are the smaller “private miracles” that teach each of us to have faith in the Lord. These come as we recognize and heed the promptings of the Spirit in our lives.—Sydney S. Reynolds
This Day in Church History
1833: Joseph Smith provides the plat of the “City of Zion,” featuring square blocks, large home lots, and street running in four cardinal directions. The design is intended to serve a city of up to twenty thousand inhabitants and becomes the basic model for LDS settlements in the Intermountain West.
1966: The Bermuda Branch, the first branch in Bermuda, is organized.
1976: As a goodwill gesture by the state of Missouri to symbolically apologize for past abuse to Latter-day Saints, Missouri governor Christopher S. Bonds signs an executive order rescinding the infamous “extermination order” issued in October 1838 by Governor Lilburn W. Boggs.
What is one way we can recognize the miracles of the Lord in our daily lives?
