Richard G. Scott, Apostle, 1988–present
"Why was Joseph Smith
able to do that which was beyond his personal capacity? It
was because of his powerful testimony. That led to his
obedience, his faith in the Master, and his unwavering
determination to do His will. I testify that as your
testimony grows in strength, when needed and earned, you can
enjoy inspiration to know what to do and when necessary,
divine power or capacity to accomplish it. Joseph Smith
perfected his ability to follow the guidance of the Lord by
practiced personal discipline. He did not let his own
desires, convenience, or the persuasions of men interfere
with that compliance. Follow his example."
