We're taking a break from our regular Miracle Monday to bring you a special devotional.
The fact that the opposition is building — and advancing — certainly needs no elaborate dissertation. Local and global newscasts bring that forth each day. Despite this disquieting time, the people of God are reminded that if God is for you, who can be against you? A situation that occurred prior to the coming of Christ supports this. In the Book of Mormon, a terrorist group called the Gadianton robbers emerged.
“And it came to pass in the thirteenth year there began to be wars and contentions throughout all the land; for the Gadianton robbers had become so numerous, and did slay so many of the people, and did lay waste so many cities, and did spread so much death and carnage throughout the land, that it became expedient that all the people, both the Nephites and the Lamanites, should take up arms against them.” (3 Nephi 2:11)
