D. Todd Christofferson, Of the Seventy

BYU Devotional, October 1999

“In yielding your will to His, God will tutor you in the successful use of moral agency. You will find freedom to be, to feel, and to do. You will be supported in all your trials. You will ‘bring forth as a very fruitful tree which is planted in a goodly land, by a pure stream, that yieldeth much precious fruit.’ Over time your prayers will become powerful, and you will come into God’s presence, through prayer, with confidence. Because of your unwearyingness in seeking the Lord’s will rather than your own, He may promise you as He did Helaman’s son, Nephi, ‘even that all things shall be done unto thee according to thy word, for thou shalt not ask that which is contrary to my will.’ Your life, your personality will take on the characteristics and qualities of Christ.”
