A few years ago I read through the Bible in ninety days. It was exhilarating. It was exhausting.
That, coupled with my wife's and my step of faith to be foster parents, led to one of the most intimate periods of my life with God.
I could feel his presence at church and when I prayed. There were multiple times when I felt God impressing things on my heart. Life was stressful and emotional, but it was all okay because me and God were tight.
Then one day it stopped.
No more tingling sensations in worship. No more direct messages from God.
I was still reading my Bible every day. Still praying. Still going to church.
Satan likes to get into your head and make you think thoughts that aren't true. He's especially good at using our prejudices, experiences, and weaknesses to make us think God is telling us something He's not.
