“As the showdown between good and evil approaches with its accompanying trials and tribulations, Satan is increasingly striving to overcome the Saints with despair, discouragement, despondency, and depression. Yet, of all people, we as Latter-day Saints should be the most optimistic and the least pessimistic. For while we know that ‘peace shall be taken from the earth, and the devil shall have power over his own dominion,’ we also know that ‘the Lord shall have power over his saints, and shall reign in their midst.’ (D&C 1:35–36.)”
Ezra Taft Benson, Tambuli, Mar 1987, 2
