In his address during the priesthood session of the October 1995 general conference, President James E. Faust of the First Presidency spoke of what can be done when lives are turned over to the Lord.
President Faust, second counselor in the First Presidency, said: "The Lord has a great work for each of us to do. You may wonder how this can be. You may feel that there is nothing special or superior about you or your ability. Perhaps you feel, or have been told, that you are stupid. Many of us have felt that and some of us have been told that. Gideon felt this when the Lord asked him to save Israel from the Midianites. Gideon said, `My family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house.' (Judges 6:15.) He had only three hundred men, but with the help of the Lord, Gideon defeated the armies of the Midianites. (See Judges, chapter 7.)"The Lord can do remarkable miracles with a person of ordinary ability who is humble, faithful, and diligent in serving the Lord and seeks to improve himself. This is because God is the ultimate source of power."
