“Have the moral courage to stand firm in obeying God’s will, even if you have to stand alone.” – For the Strength of Youth

Today and for the rest of the segment, I, ____________________, will stand firm in obeying God’s will.

“Although the devil laughs, his power is limited. Some may remember the old adage: “The devil made me do it.” Today I want to convey, in absolutely certain terms, that the adversary cannot make us do anything. He does lie at our door, as the scriptures say, and he follows us each day. Every time we go out, every decision we make, we are either choosing to move in his direction or in the direction of our Savior. But the adversary must depart if we tell him to depart. He cannot influence us unless we allow him to do so, and he knows that! The only time he can affect our minds and bodies—our very spirits—is when we allow him to do so. In other words, we do not have to succumb to his enticements!” – To Act for Ourselves: The Gift and Blessings of Agency by Robert D. Hales

Am I using my agency the way Heavenly Father would want me to?
