Jarom 1:9

"And thus being prepared to meet the Lamanites, they did not prosper against us. But the word of the Lord was verified, which he spake unto our fathers, saying that: Inasmuch as ye will keep my commandments ye shall prosper in the land."
Jarom 1:9

This is a great promise.  The Nephites were outnumbered in the land, and the Lamanites would come to war against them frequently... but because they listened to God, and did as he asked, they were able to protect themselves.  The same promise applies to us.  We might be outnumbered and opposed in whatever it is that we are trying to accomplish... it can seem that way just trying to live life sometimes. :)  But, if we will keep God's commandments, we will still be able to prosper, despite opposition.  Today, let's remember this promise, and put God first.  If we make him our priority, then everything else will work out the way it should be.  According to God, and not according to us, of course... but that's okay.  God's plans always work out better, and with a happier ending. :)
