936 Fulfill Your Duty and You Will Stand Witness
1 No matter what happens to you, you must come before God; this is the correct thing to do. On the one hand you must reflect, and on the other you must not delay in doing your duty. Do not just reflect on yourself and not do your duty. There are many times when the trials God gives to people are a burden. However heavy a burden God gives to you, you should shoulder it, for God understands you, and knows that you can bear it. The burden given to you by God will not exceed your limits; you certainly can bear it.
2 No matter what kind of burden God gives you, or what kind of trial He gives you, remember this: When praying, whether or not you come to understand God’s will, whether or not you obtain the enlightenment and illumination of the Holy Spirit, and whether the trial is God disciplining you or giving you a warning, it doesn’t matter if you do not understand it. As long as you do not stop doing the duty you should do, and can hold on to it faithfully, in this way God will be satisfied and you will have stood witness.
