Great and Marvelous Works
1 Ne. 1:14
And it came to pass that when my father had read and seen many great and marvelous things, he did exclaim many things unto the Lord; such as; Great and marvelous are thy works, O Lord God Almighty! Thy throne is high in the heavens, and they power and goodness, and mercy are over all the inhabitants of the earth, and, because thou art merciful, thou wilt not suffer those who com unto thee that they shall perish!
After Lehi's vision , he exclaimed many things. Praising God's marvelous works, His throne, power and goodness and mercy.
Lehi was full of praise for the Lord God and for His mercy upon all those who repent and for his power and goodness. He affirms the existence of God also.
D&C:44 Marvelous work..unto the convincing of many of their sins...to come unto repentance. (missionary work-changing hearts.)

Guide Scriptures- Godhead. God the Father is the supreme ruler of the universe. He is all powerful all knowing and everywhere present through His Spirit. D&C19:103, Gen 18:14
Power Matt 26:64
D&C 121:36 The rights of the Priesthood are connected with the powers of Heaven.
We receive the blessings of baptism, ordinations and temple ordinances plus the many other blessings of healing and baby blessings and setting apart blessings. The priesthood is such a wonderful blessing to those who will receive them.
Goodness and mercy of God brings up a whole multitude of other blessings that we receive from Him for which we are eternally indebted but strive to be worthy to receive. God loves all of His children and wants to bless them. This all results in our praising God as did Lehi when he saw this vision.

“Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
“Be thou and example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. ...Like a clarion call comes the word of the Lord to you, to me, and to priesthood holders everywhere. “Wherefore, now let every man learn his duty, and to act in the office in which he is appointed, in all diligence.” then we will be, as the Apostle Peter declared, even “a royal priesthood,” united in purpose and endowed with power from on high.
