I came across a quote in some studying I did last weekend. I have been pondering this quote and its application in my life. In my own patriarchal blessing, I am taught: "Satan is real and has many helpers." We understand how critical it is to understand the reality and divinity of the Godhead, but why is it significant to understand the reality of the Adversary? Here is it:
"We can make two opposite mistakes. One is to underestimate the devil's influence and power. The other is to overestimate it, or to assume there is no way out. He delights in either error, for they play into his hands. We are counseled to avoid both."
Truman G. Madsen, 2005 BYU Women's Conference
That's such a simple statement, but very profound.
May we move forward to qualify for the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost in our personal lives. Happy Thanksgiving!
