11.  I love when Moses says to Satan, "Who art thou? For behold, I am a son of God, in the similitude of his Only Begotten; and where is thy glory, that I should worship thee?"  I find it interesting that Moses had to command Satan three times to leave before he leaves - and it is only when he commands him in the name of Christ that it happens. It reminds me of Peter walking on the water. He walks back to the boat with no problem - because he does it with the power of the Savior. I hate it when people say we are never given things that are too hard for us to handle. That is a lie. We are often given things too hard for us to handle - alone. I have to remember to utilize the power of the Savior in my life. I cannot get rid of Satan in my life without the Savior. I cannot pray to my Heavenly Father, but in His name. As Moses said, "man is nothing." Yes, I am a daughter of God, but without Him - His power, His Atonement, His love, I am nothing. It is interesting to contemplate this seeming dichotomy...

12. President Harold B. Lee:  "It is a wonderful thing for us in our younger years to remember what old age brings. Chauncey Depew, a United States Congressman, was asked on his ninetieth birthday about his philosophy of life. He replied that when he was a young man his greatest ambition had been to display his intelligence, but the older he grew the greater was his anxiety to conceal his ignorance. It was indeed the beginning of learning when Moses said, after the great and soul-stirring revelation of the personality of God, 'Now, for this cause I know that man is nothing, which thing I never had supposed.' (Moses 1:10.) That was in the beginning of his wisdom." (Stand Ye In Holy Places, p198-199)
