Let’s not still be deciding.
I’ve thought about this saying today after sitting through our sessions of Stake Conference.
Are we still deciding to follow the teachings of the prophet and apostles or do we go against their counsel?
Do we listen to their messages and question the things they say? Sure, we need to gain personal testimonies of what is instructed, but are we questioning them without making an effort?
I have read the arguments made by members “they are still humans and susceptible to error.” While I agree wholeheartedly with that, I still don’t question them, and I make the best effort I can to follow the prophetic guidance from the Savior.
They are the mouthpiece of the Lord.
At times, they are instructed to change policy. They need to adjust according to newly received revelation to bring to pass, little by little, the restoration of the Gospel.
We were clearly taught, “If you think the church has been fully restored, you’re just seeing the beginning.” President Nelson.
Changes are going to come and we have a lot to look forward to.
If we are still deciding to follow the prophet or question Jesus Christ’s Gospel, let’s get direct with the Lord.
Did you know you are entitled to ask our Heavenly Father specific questions?
Ask Him to help you with the doubts you have.
Ask Him to guide you to understand and sustain your leadership. As hard as it may be for you, pray specifically to Heavenly Father to guide you to reason and understanding.
The Lord’s church will not fail. It doesn’t matter who is on earth leading the church, because Christ is leading it from above.
I mentioned this a few posts back, but we need the reminder on a daily basis: “The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing.”
Our prophet and apostles will be guided to make necessary changes. Their human errors will not thwart the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ from progressing—Trust them, and let’s not still be deciding.
It’s Christ Gospel and it is moving forward at a rapid pace. Decide to come unto Him and take His yoke upon you. In Him you will find strength!
