Overcome the World and Find Rest – President Russell M. Nelson

Entering into a covenant relationship with God binds us to Him in a way that makes everything about life easier’

During the general conference’s Sunday morning session in October 2022, President Russell M. Nelson addressed. He proclaimed that those who establish and keep covenants can find rest and overcome over the world with the aid of the Savior. A summary of his remarks is provided below.

The complexities and challenges of the world leave many feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. Making and keeping covenants makes life easier. The Savior has promised: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). “Those who live the higher laws of Jesus Christ have access to His higher power. Thus, covenant-keepers are entitled to a special kind of rest.”

Because Jesus Christ overcame the world and atoned for all of God’s children, all can overcome the world with His help. Overcoming the world means overcoming the temptation to care more about the things of the world than the things of God. It means loving Him and His Son more than anyone or anything else. By seeking for and following the promptings of the Spirit and striving to live His higher laws, “the Savior lifts us above the pull of this fallen world by blessing us with greater … rest.”

“My plea to you this morning is to find rest from the intensity, uncertainty and anguish of this world by overcoming the world through your covenants with God. … Cherish and honor your covenants above all other commitments. As you let God prevail in your life, I promise you greater peace, confidence, joy and, yes, rest.”

Entering into a covenant relationship with God binds us to Him in a way that makes everything about life easier.
I … plead with you now to take charge of your own testimony of Jesus Christ and His gospel. Work for it. Nurture it so that it will grow.
Because Jesus Christ overcame this world, you can too.
