Faith in the Lord is trust in the Lord. 
We cannot have true faith in the Lord 
without also having complete trust 
in the Lord’s will 
and in the Lord’s timing. 

As a result, 
no matter how strong our faith is, 
it cannot produce a result contrary 
to the will of Him in whom we have faith. 

Remember that when your prayers 
do not seem to be answered 
in the way 
or at the time 
you desire. 

The exercise of faith 
in the Lord Jesus Christ 
is always subject to the order of heaven, 
to the goodness 
and will 
and wisdom 
and timing of the Lord. 

When we have that kind 
of faith 
and trust 
in the Lord, 
we have true security and serenity in our lives.

—Dallin H. Oaks, The Atonement and Faith, Ensign, Apr 2010, 30–34
