My Personal Study on Oct 13, 2010

Today I was reading in Alma 17 and I have a lot of scriptures that I like in that Chapter like this one, 
  2 Now these sons of Mosiah were with Alma at the time the angel first appeared unto him; therefore Alma did rejoice exceedingly to see his brethren; and what added more to his joy, they were still his brethren in the Lord; yea, and they had waxed strong in the knowledge of the truth; for they were men of a sound understanding and they had searched the scriptures diligently, that they might know the word of God.
but that's not the one I would like to talk about today the one I would like to talk about is Verses 34-35 and they say
34 Therefore, they did as Ammon commanded them, and he went forth and stood to contend with those who stood by the waters of Sebus; and they were in number not a few.

  35 Therefore they did not fear Ammon, for they supposed that one of their men could slay him according to their pleasure, for they knew not that the Lord had promised Mosiah that he would deliver his sons out of their hands; neither did they know anything concerning the Lord; therefore they delighted in the destruction of their brethren; and for this cause they stood to scatter the flocks of the king.
what is going on in this Chapter is Ammon just came to teach the Lamanites and they took him to the king and the King asked him some questions and Ammon asked if he could be his servant and the king told him that he could and he was in charge of watching the sheep but some other Lamanites would go chase the sheep and Ammon wanted to protect the sheep and that's where the scriptures they came to scatter the sheep again and there was a lot of them and they thought they could take him out no prob but what they did not know is that the lord was on his side and as long as he was doing what the Lord wanted him to do nothing could hurt him.
That is true with every body we can have the lord in our lives and if the lord tells us to do something and He tells us to do something if we follow him we will be blessed no matter what.
