The Power Of God’s Love
September 12, 2018
Jesus Christ Is More Powerful Than Satan
Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study
1 Nephi 21:10
“They shall not hunger nor thirst, neither shall the heat nor the sun smite them;” They Shall Not Hunger Nor Thirst
We need God’s love! His love can heal all wounds and is how hope is strengthened. Things can go terribly wrong in life, but if you feel God’s love and therefore His assurances you can endure anything.
What if your children always felt close to and loved by Christ?
They would avoid most of the personal noise and the damaging lies they might believe about themselves.
President Henry B. Eyring said;
“Time has taught me. As the forces around us increase in intensity, whatever spiritual strength was once sufficient will not be enough. And whatever growth in spiritual strength we once thought was possible, greater growth will be made available to us. Both the need for spiritual strength and the opportunity to acquire it will increase at rates which we underestimate at our peril.”
The Devil is real and he is intensifying his efforts to spread darkness. However, God has also provided means to counter the darkness. Jesus Christ has absolute power over Satan and can extinguish the greatest darkness.
Neither Shall The Heat Nor The Sun Smite Them
President Eyring said;
“The Master not only foresees perfectly the growing power of the opposing forces but also knows what it is like to be mortal. He knows what it is like to have the cares of life press upon us…..He knows the mistake we can so easily make: to underestimate the forces working for us and to rely too much on our human powers. And so He offers us to the covenant to “always remember Him” and the warning to “pray always” so that we will place our reliance on Him, our only safety. It is not hard to know what to do. The very difficulty of remembering always and praying always is a needed spur to try harder. The danger lies in delay or drift.”
In that talk President Eyring pleaded for us to take the scriptures more seriously and read them more intently.
We must spiritually nourish our souls and our children, be feeding them food that fills them and heals them of their pains and sicknesses. We can’t feed them empty calories or spiritual processed food; otherwise, they will be spiritually sick.
