How do we know?

“We are given further light and knowledge line upon line, precept upon precept.  The Lord will never give us more than we can handle or than what is for our greater good.  This applies to trials as well as insight and knowledge.  He seeks to do only that which is for our greater eternal welfare.

So how do we purify our hearts?  How do we have confidence that we are at least on the right path? It is my belief that we will begin to know and understand this is happening because we will feel it in our hearts, in our minds and in our souls.  We will begin to see the fruits of our labors.  We will reap the results through the law of the harvest.

“President Thomas S. Monson said, “Decisions are constantly before us.  To make them wisely, courage is needed – the courage to say no, the courage to say yes. Decisions do determine destiny.” (Ensign, November 2010, p.68).
