" . . . dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith” (Ether 12:6)."

" Just as the prison holding Alma and Amulek did not tumble to the earth “until after their faith,” and just as Ammon and his missionary brethren did not witness mighty miracles in their ministries “until after their faith” (see Ether 12:12–15), so [our] healing [will] not occur until after [our] faith and [is] accomplished “according to their faith in their prayers” (D&C 10:47)" (Elder David A. Bednar, "Ask in Faith," Ensign, May 2008).

"For if there be no faith, among the children of men God can do no miracle among them; wherefore, he showed not himself until after their faith" (Ether 12:12).

Without faith, we cannot reach our potential. We can not be healed of our afflications. We cannot progress in Christ. We cannot have miracles come to us in our lives until our faith has been tried. If we want our own prisons (addictions, bad habits, unfavorable circumstances, physical appetitites,etc.) to tumble to the ground, we must have faith that God can and will, in His own due time assist us in our escape. This goes for weight loss too. Do you feel trapped by your food addictions, physical inactivity, and other bad habits? If so, exercise faith by first hoping that Christ truly cares about you enough to help you overcome these trials. Then, take that first small step, but do not do it alone. Hold firmly to gospel principles, and He will lead you and show you the way. Finally, as you begin to feel your life change: step by step, rejoice and give thanks, and above all, continue in humility. Before long, I promise, the prison walls will tumble, and you will be set free . . .
