Alma moved on to the city of Ammonihah, where his message was so rejected by the people, he left them. As he left, an angel appeared to him (one he had encountered before) and informed Alma that the people of Ammonihah were planning to destroy the liberty of his people (v. 17). Alma returned speedily at that news with no idea how to proceed. He knew he had to try, though, and the Lord led and assisted him in his quest. How speedily do we respond to those things which threaten our faith, our family or our freedom? Can we follow Alma’s example and react with great haste, trusting the Lord?
