The Spirit of God

            I can’t even begin to describe the feeling that came over me when we sang “The Spirit of God” at the Brigham City temple dedication today. I had the wonderful opportunity to go to the Marriott Center with the BYU wards, and it was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had. I’ve never had so many chills in my life. At the beginning of the second verse of “The Spirit of God”, I had the feeling to stand up. I shook it off, thinking no, they didn’t tell us to stand. Luckily, someone else followed the impression, because people started standing up. I stood with the armies of heaven today, and I don’t think I can ever forget that. As I looked around the room, I saw my brothers and sisters, my fellow soldiers, and I knew that I could never be alone in my life. These wonderful, good people would always stand with me. There was no doubt in my mind that Satan will lose. If you could have seen the youth of Zion stand up and say, “Hosanna, hosanna, hosanna to God and the Lamb!” then you would have felt the exact same thing that I did. You would never again doubt the youth of the Church, because even the angels were with us today. I felt them everywhere, surrounding us, standing with the future of the world. Never doubt your own divinity. Sing and shout with the armies of heaven. Satan will lose, and Christ will be victorious. Amen, and amen.
