I’m Not Sure Our Country Will Survive.

‘m not sure our country will survive.
.
If I had a nickel for every time I have said this or I’ve heard others say this, I’m sure I’d be a living wealthy.
.
Last night as I was studying a passage from Gerald N. Lund, I again was humbled. He told a story of the problems our nation was facing in 2008. As a General Authority Seventy, he was sitting at lunch; his conversation turned towards the current events and the ”Crash of 2007.”
.
During the conversation, a senior member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles sat down with them to eat. He didn’t say much of anything, and the conversation went back to the problems in the United States.
.
Someone then made a statement, and it perked up the head of the senior Apostle. The statement was this, ”With the high debt crisis our nation holds, I’m not even sure our country will survive this.”
.
The Apostle then placed down his fork, and Gerald Lund recalled to the best of his ability the following statement, ”Brethren, the United States of America is the country where God chose to restore His Church. Without the freedoms and protection, our Constitution offers, we would not exist.
.
Without the affluence of our people and the generous contributions they make to the kingdom because of that affluence, this Church could not continue its global operations.
.
So, this nation is not ever going to completely fail, because then God’s work would fail. We will have our problems, some of them very serious ones, but no unhallowed hand can stop this work.
.
Cheer up. God is at the helm. Do not fear!”
.
What a comforting story to hear. We are living in scary times as the mortal man sees them; however, if we see these tones through God’s plan, they are not scary.
.
The more we learn to hear the Lord, the less frightened we will be. I’m grateful to know that God will not fail. The nation he established will not completely fail. This is where he established His restored Gosepl.
.
Find comfort and hear Him!
