Covenant Confidence through Jesus Christ

by Elder Ulisses Soares of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. April 2024 General Conference talk.

…those who gain genuine confidence in the covenants made in the house of the Lord through Jesus Christ possess one of the most powerful forces that we can access in this life.

Essential Question #1 – How can I possess the Force, that is the power of God?

Essential Question #2 – How and why do I cast away my confidence in Jesus Christ?

Essential Question #3 – What one thing can I give to my children and grandchildren to help them in their tests and trials ahead?

Essential Question #1 – How can I possess the Force, that is the power of God?

I, Nephi, beheld the power of the Lamb of God, that it descended upon the saints of the church of the Lamb, and upon the covenant people of the Lord,…and they were armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory.

1 Nephi 14:14

I came to the April 2024 General Conference seeking a miracle for Shanthi Kimball, who has no arms. Then listening to Elder Soares talk gave me great hope.

I have seen firsthand the Lord’s loving promises and power flowing into the lives of God’s children, strengthening them to face life’s circumstances….As my wife walked into the initiatory area, she saw a sweet sister who was missing one arm – and had only part of another arm – beautifully and celestially performing any tasks she was given.

Essential Question #2 – How and why do I cast away my confidence in Jesus Christ?

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

Hebrews 10:35

Recompence means to pay or give compensation for; make restitution or requital for damage, injury or the like, see Dictionary.com – recompense.

Essential Question #3 – What one thing can I give to my children and grandchildren to help them in their tests and trials ahead?

…one thing we could possess – and one thing we could pass on to our children and grandchildren that would help each in the tests and trials ahead – it would be confidence in the covenants made through Jesus Christ.

For me to be able to give confidence I must first possess it. Similar to love and the quote – “love isn’t love unless you give it away.” Truly obtaining confidence is “a divine possession.”
