"Though evil will always be around us, we can be armed with righteousness and be strengthened against trials and temptations.
"In 1 Nephi 15:24, Nephi’s brothers asked him about the rod of iron. He responded 'that it was the word of God; and whoso would hearken unto the word of God, and would hold fast unto it, they would never perish; neither could the temptations and the fiery darts of the adversary overpower them unto blindness, to lead them away to destruction.' When we hold to the iron rod, we cannot be overpowered.
"Wilford Woodruff said this about the strengthening power of God. 'We have been sustained by the power of God from the beginning to this day, and nothing short of the power of God could have saved us and brought us through; and nothing but the power of God can preserve us, and nothing but His wisdom can pilot us safe to the high destiny that awaits us.'
"I want to bear my testimony that I know that the Lord will strengthen us through our trials and temptations, and that He is always there to bless us and to give us His power as we turn to Him and as we strive to do the things that He has commanded us."
