Reach Up to Him in Faith

 

 

Today, we’re faced with unique challenges. It’s comforting to know that God never intended for us to go through them alone. In a general conference address entitled “Drawing the Power of Jesus Christ into Our Lives,” President Russell M. Nelson explained, “God so loved the world that He sent His Only Begotten Son to help us. And His Son, Jesus Christ, gave His life for us. All so that we could have access to godly power” (Ensign or Liahona, May 2017, 39). Every day we’re given the opportunity to reach out and tap into this divine power by putting our faith in Jesus Christ. A New Testament example highlighted in this video is that of the woman who “had an issue of blood twelve years” and was made whole by simply touching Jesus’s clothing. Jesus knelt and explained to her that it was her faith in Him that had made her whole (see Mark 5:25–34). “When you spiritually stretch beyond anything you have ever done before, then His power will flow into you.” —President Russell M. Nelson

The Savior: The Perfect Physician

By Matt Lindsey Hawaii, USA

As a physician, I once had a patient come to me after a routine blood test was out of normal range. In the days between her test and our visit, she had consulted the internet about what the results could mean. When we met, she was upset and worried. I tried to explain the results, but she was still distraught.

“Don’t worry about what could go wrong,” I told her. “That’s my job! It’s what I’m here for. I studied hard to know what to do about this. We’ll get through this together, and if you’ll follow my instructions, you’ll know how to be whole again. Trust me and let me take the burden of medical worries. Then you can focus all your energy on getting better.”

This helped to calm her fears. We made plans to run more tests, and I promised we’d move forward together.

Months later, I was experiencing turmoil in my own life. Pressures at work, a baby on the way, and an upcoming move overwhelmed me. I found myself frustrated, anxious, and afraid.

I prayed earnestly about my worries, sins, and frustrations. As I prayed, the Spirit testified of the Savior’s importance in my life. It was as if He said to me:

“Don’t worry about all the things that could happen. That’s my job! It’s what I’m here for. I suffered all things to know what to do about this. Have faith in me, and we’ll get through this together. If you’ll follow my instructions, you can again be whole. Trust me and let me take those spiritual burdens. Then you can focus all your efforts on becoming your best self.”

With this realization, my worry, guilt, and frustration were lifted. Faith in Him removed unproductive feelings that blocked my progress. I could focus on the things in my control. I could live the gospel and turn to the Savior in my challenges.

In the same way that a physician might lead us to physical wholeness, the Savior, who is the perfect Physician, can take away the burden of shame, worry, guilt, and even feelings of frustration and anxiety and show us the way to be spiritually whole again. That’s His job, and He performs it perfectly.
