Sheri Dew discusses five ways God gives us his power: his word, the gift of the Holy Ghost, priesthood, temple, and the Savior’s Atonement.
We have been told that we are the generation that will carry the kingdom of God to victory. “Do you think God would have left the last days to chance by sending men and women he couldn’t count on?” asks Sheri Dew, president and CEO of Deseret Book. “. . . Our Father’s most trustworthy children would be needed in the final, decisive battle for righteousness. That is who you are.”
Such a charge sets a high bar. Sister Dew articulates four powerful principles to help us better understand this potential:
- “God wants a powerful people.”
- “He gives His power to those who are faithful.”
- “We have a sacred obligation to seek after the power of God and then to use that power as He directs.”
- “When we have the power of God with us, nothing is impossible.”
These truths can give us a clearer vision for our potential. But what can we do today to achieve the glorious purpose God has in store for us?
God makes his power available through five important tools: his word, the gift of the Holy Ghost, the priesthood, the temple, and the Atonement of Jesus Christ. As we lay hold on that power, God will guide us to become what he intends us to be.Read Sheri Dew’s full article, “You Were Born to Lead, You Were Born for Glory.”
