Moses 4:6

"And Satan put it into the heart of the serpent, (for he had drawn away many after him,) and he sought also to beguile Eve, for he knew not the mind of God, wherefore he sought to destroy the world."
Moses 4:6

I like the phrase here "for he knew not the mind of God."  I think that we see similar things throughout the scriptures, where someone is trying to destroy God's plans, and they always fail.  Satan, who I'm pretty sure never had a veil drawn over his memories, probably has the best chance of anyone trying... but as we see in this verse, even the best chance, against God, is still zero chance.  God knows what is going to happen, and his plan incorporates it all.  Adam and Eve had to fall in order to bring free agency to all of us, and mortality and death give us the time we need outside of God's direct presence to have true choices, and to find out who we will choose to be.
Today, let's not fight a losing battle against God.  Instead, let's take advantage of his plan, and make the choices that will bring us closer to eternal happiness and peace.
