My Wisdom is Greater
When the 116 pages were lost, they fell into the hands of wicked men. The Lord knew that if Joseph retranslated the lost section, the wicked men would make changes and say that he hadn’t done it “by the power of God” because the two copies wouldn’t match. The Lord explained to Joseph that “the devil has sought to lay a cunning plan, that he may destroy this work.” Instead, the Lord had prompted Nephi (thousands of years earlier) to make a second record which Joseph could now translate that would contain precious truths and the story of Lehi and his family. Satan’s plan failed, and the Lord showed Joseph that His wisdom is “greater than the cunning of the devil.”
In Doctrine & Covenants section 10, we learn that Satan tries to trick us, in order to destroy our souls. He lies, tempts, deceives, and distracts us. He tries to harden our hearts and overpower our testimonies. The wisdom of God is much greater than the devil. God can help us make right choices, forgive us, love us, and bring us joy and peace. He knows the end from the beginning and if we trust in Him, keep his commandments, and pray always, we can overcome Satan and his deceptions.
