Alma 20

When we follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost, we have the Lord's help to accomplish whatever we have been prompted to do. Ammon was directed to go and rescue his brothers and their friends from prison in Middoni, and he did it.

When Lamoni asked him how he knew that his brethren were in prison in Middoni, Ammon told him the following:

5 And Ammon said unto him: No one hath told me, save it be God; and he said unto me—Go and deliver thy brethren, for they are in prison in the land of Middoni.

"Spirituality yields two fruits. The first is inspiration to know what to do. The second is power, or the capacity to do it." Richard G. Scott, “To Acquire Spiritual Guidance,” Ensign, Nov 2009, 6–9

I love that Elder Scott quote. It isn't enough to know what is right. It isn't enough to just have faith. You have to do what you are directed. I wonder if Nephi as he slunked through the dark city, as a wanted man, if he was afraid. He didn't know what he was to do, only that the Lord would make provisions for him to accomplish what he was called to. I think its sometimes easy to forget that when in the middle of a task and you cannot see beyond the next turn. Its a good reminder for me.
