Make Strong Communities •7 delight to do thy will, O God, thy law is within my heart." — Psalms 4(J:o God is neither "boss", nor supervisor. When we meet temptation face-to-face we cannot turn to God with a question and expect an answer to be written in the clouds. God does not direct our movements with signs or symbols. We find God's will in the Commandments and in the principles of Christianity. For the practicing Christian, belief in God becomes a source of strength in the face of temptation. There is, in obedience to the will of God, a measure of continuing strength and personal satisfaction.
