“Great Power Which Looks Small Unto the Understanding of Men”

Dallin H. Oaks

“Many mortals have a myopic view of the power and position of God. As the brother of Jared observed, even the great power of God ’looks small unto the understanding of men.’ (Ether 3:5.) In truth, many mortals—even some members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—are so shortsighted that they presume to judge the things of God by their own mortal reasoning. As Elder Neal A. Maxwell has observed: ’Yes, we may acknowledge His overall plan but criticize His style, because He does things in His own way… . We would prefer that things be done in our way, even though our ways are much lower than His.’” (The Lord’s Way, p. 3)
