"Our scriptures and our history are replete with accounts of God's
great men and women who believed that He would deliver them, but if not,
they demonstrated that they would trust and be true.
"He has the power, but it's our test. What does the Lord expect of us with respect to our challenges? He expects us to do all we can do. He does the
rest. Nephi said, 'For we know that it is by grace that we are saved,
after all we can do' (2 Nephi 25:23)."
