Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles and distinguished former surgeon and medical researcher, spoke to the Students of BYU-Idaho Jan. 27.
Elder Nelson said there are numerous unlikely individuals throughout the Bible who were able to accomplish the impossible.
He said that among these are King David, Gideon, Moses, Joshua, and young Joseph Smith. Whether it was slaying Goliath, parting the Red Sea, or restoring Christ’s original church on the earth, the Lords pattern has always been the same.
Elder Nelson tells us this pattern can be applied to us today.
He says we should remember that, “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.” (Matt 19:26).
