1 Nephi 4:3 — LeGrand Baker — Doubting as Fear

1 Nephi 4:3 

3. Now behold ye know that this is true; and ye also know that an angel hath spoken unto you; wherefore can ye doubt? Let us go up; the Lord is able to deliver us, even as our fathers, and to destroy Laban, even as the Egyptians.

Sometimes doubting has nothing to do with what we know. Rather it has to do with what we fear. And that, in turn, has a great deal to do with our integrity. When we know what the Lord has instructed us, but also know that it puts us in a fearful situation, we have two options: 1) to act upon our fears, notwithstanding what we know or 2) to act upon our knowledge, notwithstanding what we fear.
