Book of Mormon Alma 47 (part two)

   Now, that Amalickiah has his army he marched back to the city of the Lamanities, and Amalickiah marries the queen and becomes king of the Lamanites, as he had desired.  All of this would not of happened if Lehonti didn't come down from his mountain.
  Lehonti had the high ground.  Lehonti had the advantage.  Lehonti was fixed in his mind that he would not give into Amalickiah's (Satan's) temptations.

  Do not leave your high ground, don't even take a couple steps down the mountain because that is what Satan desires us to do.  He knows that if we give in just a little bit then he knows he has us.  Satan is good at what he does.  But we have the advantage.  we have God on our side.

  So now read this note again, and replace Lehonti with your name and replace Amalickiah's name with Satan.  As you read it again by replacing the names.  Think of ways how this story can relate to us and strengthen us.

  I know that God loves us.  He loves us so much that he gave us a Savior.  His only begotten son so that if we make mistakes we can be forgiven!  In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
