The truth will prevail.

The truth will prevail.
.
We have recently been instructed by President Nelson to “Let God Prevail.” I want to write about something along those same lines—The Truth WILL Prevail.
.
It’s not about whether we are wrong or we are right. It’s about making decisions in our life that allow the truth to prevail.
.
I’ve seen both sides of the fence. I like the side I’m currently on and I will absolutely not be a fence rider—I’m all in.
.
Alcohol, drugs, or mischievous acts are not things I want to mess around with; I don’t want them in my life (these are just three examples; we could list more).
.
How do we let truth prevail in our lives? Well, we have to act according to our faith.
.
Does alcohol bring the spirit of a Christ-centered home?
.
Does the abuse of narcotics bring the spirit of a Christ-centered home?
.
Does the spirit remain and do you feel entitled to personal revelation when these activities are influencing your surroundings?
.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a participant in the activity or not. The spirit does not dwell in unholy temples. If you’re enabling these actions, the spirit will withdrawal from the unholy atmosphere—Stand up for truth and righteousness.
.
“And because of their iniquity the church had begun to dwindle; and they began to disbelieve in the spirit of prophecy and in the spirit of revelation; and the judgments of God did stare them in the face.
.
And they saw that they had become weak, like unto their brethren, the Lamanites, and that the Spirit of the Lord did no more preserve them; yea, it had withdrawn from them because the Spirit of the Lord doth not dwell in unholy temples.” Helman 4:23-24.
.
How do we know if these things are true and how do we let truth prevail? It’s called FAITH. If I go the rest of my life and don’t partake in “worldly fun” I will be okay.
.
Why? Because, my witness has come. I am a witness to these abiding truths taught by the Son of God—they have prevailed for me in my life.
.
His truths have kept me safe, they have given me comfort, and they have never made me question if I’m on the right path.
.
I can hear Him as I let His truths prevail in my life.
