Message 71:3

Fear not, for the Lord is mindful of his people. The Church shall see his hand and his power. Heed not that which does not calm the soul—it is of the evil and seeks to destroy. Be not moved in emotion, for Satan takes hold of mankind and entices evil that they may gain prominency—and speaks in confusion and untruths.

The lord is looking out for his people. If we sit back and watch the events of the world we will be able to see the hand of God in control. We should look to his words for both strength and hope.

Message 64:7

Lift up your strength in the Lord. In times past you have been delivered from the pitfalls of Satan. The plan of the evil one to destroy shall be frustrated. Heed wisdom. Those the Lord has sent you for encouragement to stand by this work shall be blessed, for in peace they shall find rest. Many blessings shall come to the humble.

In our hard time and in our good we need to remember the give thanks to God. There are times in our lives that we might feel that God has forsaken us or left us alone, but this is not true. God is always there, we just might not like what he is saying. God does not promise to make us rich or give us all of our dreams, but he will always give us what we need and the strength to make it through. He does this by his spirit, his word, and the servants. Don’t be afraid to seek the help of others, in your problems. God has a huge army of workers that he can use any way that he wants.

Mosiah 24:12-16

And it came to pass that Alma and his people did not raise their voices to the Lord their God, but did pour out their hearts to him; and he did know the thoughts of their hearts. And it came to pass that the voice of the Lord came to them in their afflictions, saying: Lift up your heads and be of good comfort, for I know of the covenant which ye have made unto me; and I will covenant with my people and deliver them out of bondage. And I will also ease the burdens which is put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage; and this will I do that ye may stand as witnesses for me hereafter, and that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions. And now it came to pass that the burdens which was laid upon Alma and his brethren were made light; yea, the Lord did strengthen them that they could bear up their burdens with ease, and they did submit cheerfully and with patience to all the will of the Lord. And it came to pass that so great was their faith and their patience that the voice of the Lord came unto them again, saying: Be of good comfort, for on the morrow I will deliver thee out of bondage.

When we are put in situations that push our bodies and minds to the limit, it is refreshing to know that God will give us the strength to overcome. This can include daily activities to lifelong battles. If we trust in God he will give us the strength to accomplish anything.

Deuteronomy 4:27-31

And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you. And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

The Lord promises us that he will never forsake us. They are going to be times when there are not going to be many people following God’s will, but for the ones that he does, he will not leave. Though all the tribulation and things that will come into our lives, we can be reassured that God will always be there with his mercy for us.

Psalms 18:2-3

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Without God we are weak and hopeless, but with God anything is possible. He will always be there no matter what we do. Let us be reassured that he will always be there for us we need him.

Message 41:12

“I will cause my servants to be strong in the Lord that they shall stand before multitudes and proclaim the message of life to many that know it not, and thousands shall obey, for they shall come from afar and the hosts of Israel shall know their places. Therefore, be of good cheer, be pleasant in your work, speak the truth in humility, in kindness be your thoughts. Remember to be faithful and true, and the Lord God shall bring to pass all his strange act and fulfill all the promises that gladden the hearts of all those that think upon the Lord.”

We should be at peace knowing that God is in charge.  He tells us to trust him in all that we do. When we are week we can rest and know that God is our strength. He can get us though anything, no matter how hard that it seems.
