Faith and Belief

Posted on

Therefore, if this is the case, I would that ye should go in and see my husband, for he has been laid upon his bed for the space of two days and two nights; and some say that he is not dead, but others say that he is dead and that he stinketh, and that he ought to be placed in the sepulchre; but as for myself, to me he doth not stink.
Now, this was what Ammon desired, for he knew that king Lamoni was under the power of God; he knew that the dark veil of unbelief was being cast away from his mind, and the light which did light up his mind, which was the light of the glory of God, which was a marvelous light of his goodness—yea, this light had infused such joy into his soul, the cloud of darkness having been dispelled, and that the light of everlasting life was lit up in his soul, yea, he knew that this had overcome his natural frame, and he was carried away in God

Alma 19:5-6

If Ammon wanted to go in and see the king, if he knew what had happened to him, then why didn’t he go in and see him? Why didn’t he tell someone what happened? Well, first of all, Ammon is just a servant. Not many would believe him, and he’s not allowed to just walk into the most important person in the land’s bedroom! And even if they would believe him, they need to believe in and have enough faith in God.

And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

Matthew 9:28-29

Ammon doesn’t know who knows what he told the king. He doesn’t know who would believe him if they knew. He might not even know about their worries! He is just a servant, after all.
