There’s a theme of deliverance and fulfilled prophecy in the Come, Follow Me reading this week.
- Alma and Amulek breaking the cords they are bound by (also see 1 Nephi 18:20)
- the city of Ammonihah falling in a single day (see Alma 9:4)
I don’t know from the story in Alma 14 how long Alma and Amulek were imprisoned, it’s possible they cried for deliverance many times, but eventually it came.
Deliverance comes like the sun rising. But every night isn’t the same length, and I can’t expect every promised blessing at an exact moment, though I can count on them coming.
