Mosiah 24:15-16 (#158)

Question

When you’re faced with challenges, are your prayers focused on asking the Lord to take the challenge away from you, or instead, do you ask for the strength needed to handle the challenge with ease? Why is this difference so important and how could its application over a lifetime impact your personal growth and development?

Scripture

15 And now it came to pass that the burdens which were 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.
16 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 you out of bondage.

Mosiah 24:15-16

Quote

The challenges and difficulties were not immediately removed from [the people of Alma]. But Alma and his followers were strengthened, and their increased capacity made the burdens lighter. These good people were empowered through the Atonement to act as agents and impact their circumstances. And “in the strength of the Lord,” Alma and his people were directed to safety in the land of Zarahemla.

Elder David A. Bednar
