Fear Not Thine Enemies

on October 11, 2012

Go thy way and do as I have told you, and fear not thine enemies; for they shall not have power to stop my work. (Doctrine and Covenants 136:17)

Many citizens worry that in the elections next month their enemies will win political power that they will then use harmfully. There have been many times when the Lord’s people feared and the Lord comforted them and urged them to keep going in obedience to his instructions. In the example we cite above, The Lord gave a revelation to Brigham Young about the organization of the camp of Israel for the journey westward to the Rocky Mountains. After all the persecution the Saints had experienced up to that point and the daunting prospect before them of starting all over again in a new place yet another time, the Lord tells His people to follow His instructions without fear of their enemies. He also assures them that their enemies will not be as powerful as the Saints feared they would be. We believe the Lord will say something similar to fearful Saints today if they ask him. No matter how much power evil doers might gain or keep in the upcoming elections, the Lord will still be mightier than they.
