August 31, 2021 - Armed

I want you to continually remember in your mind, in your heart and in your soul this phrase from the Book of Mormon, ‘armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory’ (1 Nephi 14:14). This is a promise to the covenant people of the Lord. Please see yourself in that verse of scripture.

Elder David A. Bednar, MTC Devotional, August 30, 2021

It's interesting because first I need to go get the armor that is righteousness, but once I get it and put it on, it becomes a protector for me. And it doesn't just protect me from fiery darts and other weapons that come AT me, but it comes with the very power of God, which means I will go AT those using those very weapons. That power will influence everything around me. So, those fiery darts may not even make it to my person.

And we are promised to have this with us if we seek it. The Lord is bound to give it to us. He has to. He does not lie. He cannot. All we have to do is go get it. Sounds simple, right?

However, Satan and his minions know that all we have to do is reach for it. He does not want us to. He will do everything in his power to distract us, to trip us up, to knock us down, blind us, and to stop us.

But, God is all powerful and Satan is not-so-much and he knows it, yet still thinks he will win. Sad thing is that he will gain some souls to go with him. So let's see this from the eternal perspective and make sure we're on the right side. We have all the tools to help us, we just need to use them, I need to use them.
