God fought that battle for me. I really do not seek the fight, but it often comes to me. I just refuse to back down once the fight comes my way. I hold my testimony in higher regard than life itself. It truly is my greatest possession.
Here is the story that got me spun up:
President George Q. Cannon spoke to this subject on more than one occasion, cautioning the Saints:
I have come to the conclusion that if our eyes were open to see the spirit world around us, . . . we would not be so unguarded and careless, and so indifferent whether we had the spirit and power of God with us or not; but we would be continually watchful and prayerful to our heavenly Father for His Holy Spirit and His holy angels to be around about us to strengthen us to overcome every evil influence. . . .If he could [Satan] would shed the blood of every man and woman on the face of the earth, rather than it should go into the hands of God. All those who are connected with him would, if they could, slay every man that stands in their pathway. The more faithful a man is in the cause of God, the more the hatred of the wicked is manifested against him.
This kind of ties into this week’s Book of Mormon video:
