I recently listened to a talk in our Palm harbor Ward, Palm Harbor, Flordia and during the talk I heard something that stuck out. The words on an apostle, which I am still trying to find out which one, say when we keep the sabbeth day holy, we are able to withstand temptation better.
I really wanted to learn more, so this post is a start. Looking here: https://www.lds.org/topics/temptation?lang=eng
One thing I wanted to leave here for future reference was:
The last days in which we live are especially "perilous times" (2 Timothy 3:1). The influence of the adversary is widespread and seductive. Satan tries to deceive and to make sin seem appealing. But each individual can defeat Satan and overcome temptation. Each individual has the gift of agency—the power to choose good over evil. Those who humble themselves before God and pray continually for strength will not be "tempted above that which [they] can bear" (Alma 13:28). As they willingly obey the commandments, Heavenly Father strengthens them to withstand temptation.
"As they willingly obey the commandments, Heavenly Father strengthens them to withstand temptation." As we are willing to keep the commandments. Wow! If we can pray ernestly to really, truly desire to keep the commandments, have faith in this satement and act on that faith, the Father gives is strength to withstand temptation. I think this is excellent! I believe this to be true!
