As the Spirit begins to reveal to Nephi what his father, Lehi, had seen in vision, another truth about God is given.
“And the Spirit said unto me: Behold, what desirest thou? And I said: I desire to behold the things which my father saw. And the Spirit said unto me: Believest thou that thy father saw the tree of which he hath spoken? And I said: Yea, thou knowest that I believe all the words of my father. And when I had spoken these words, the Spirit cried with a loud voice, saying: Hosanna to the Lord, the most high God; for he is God over all the earth, yea even above all.” (1 Nephi 11:6)
-Do you believe there is a God over all the earth?
-Would knowing there is a God with perfect perspective and judgment provide greater comfort and hope in your day-to-day life?
-Can the Spirit, who bore witness of God’s existence and exalted status to Nephi in vision, bear the same witness to you in your heart?
-How much strength to live a better life could be received from developing a greater bond with the Lord who is above all?
