December 6, 2021 - Stay Vigilant

I promise that as we come to a knowledge of the truth and are converted unto the Lord, we will remain firm and steadfast and never fall away. Eagerly we will set aside our weapons of rebellion. We will be blessed with bright light from our lamps of testimony and an ample supply of the oil of conversion. And as each of us becomes more fully converted, we will strengthen our families, our friends, and our associates.

Elder David A. Bednar, "Converted Unto The Lord", General Conference, October 2012

We live in a time where we have to decide if we will to go in with the Bridegroom or not. He is coming and He is coming very soon. If we're not ready, we can't go in, regardless of how much we want to. Simple as that.

I was reminded today about how easily it is to be influenced by the evil one and fall into his traps. He lies in wait constantly for any vulnerability we show or any cracks in our armor that he can exploit so he can ensnare us in his chains. If we get complacent, he will grab us. I find myself lettmy guard down at times to relax. I can't afford to.

I am reminded often of that scripture in Moses that depicts Satan covering the whole earth with his puny influence and laughing as, one by one, we succumb to his attempts, his tricks, his darts, his feeble promises (Moses 7:26).

I implore anyone and everyone within the reach of these words.....stay close to the Lord. Learn of Him. Trust in Him. Love Him. Follow Him.

Of course we will stumble. Of course we will fall down. But we must get back up and keep trying. That's in our control. That we can do.
