October 2, 2022 - The Prophet Is Speaking

Overcoming the world is an ongoing process, involving repeatedly embracing and living the doctrine of Christ, cultivating faith through daily repentance, making and keeping covenants, and contintually strengthening our testimonies.
In coming days, we will see the greatest manifestations of the Savior’s power that the world has ever seen.

President Russell M. Nelson, General Conference, October 2022

A couple of thoughts here. First, the Prophet talked about our need to overcome the world. How do we do that? He talks about living the doctrine of Christ. Well, in order to do that, we need to know it. So, we need to immerse ourselves in the scriptures and words of modern servants. Then, we need to pray for strength and opportunities to live it. Then also, as he mentioned, daily repentance, keeping covenants, and strengthening testimonies, which will happen doing all of this. All things we know we need to do....we just need to do them better.

My second thought I had to bring up to, separate from overcoming the world, he said that we will see the greatest manifestations of Christ's power in the coming days. This is extremely significant. Because, in the scriptures, we read of Christ's tremendous power and miracles and, still, in the coming days He will manifest even greater power than that?

Wow. I'm so excited to see what happens and how it all plays out. To be honest, I'm a little nervous too. Not fearful, just apprehensive because of the unknown. But, I need to fully trust in Christ and let Him steer the ship and stop sticking my hand or my puny, futile oar in the water to see if I can control the direction or speed some.
