Let Your Hearts Be Comforted

Doctrine & Covenants 98-101 | September 6-12

The persecution of the early Church in Missouri was growing. The Saints were being forced from their homes and the mobs were becoming more fierce. While in Kirtland, Ohio, Joseph Smith received a revelation to comfort and strengthen the suffering Saints. The Lord encouraged them to be comforted and to give thanks in all things. He told them to follow the laws and to be peaceful and patient.

Meanwhile, Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon were called to preach in New York and Canada. The Lord promised that he would give them the words to say and that many souls will be saved if they will go and preach.

Doctrine & Covenants 98:1

“Verily I say unto you my friends, fear not, let your hearts be comforted; yea, rejoice evermore, and in everything give thanks;”

  • What can we do when we face trials?
  • How does gratitude help us when we are struggling?
  • How can we be peaceful and patient when others are unkind to us?
  • Why is it helpful to remember the “big picture” when we’re going though difficult times?


“Suffering is universal; how we react to suffering is individual. Suffering can take us one of two ways. It can be a strengthening and purifying experience combined with faith, or it can be a destructive force in our lives if we do not have the faith in the Lord’s atoning sacrifice. The purpose of suffering, however, is to build and strengthen us. We learn obedience by the things we suffer.” Robert D. Hales
